Owls and Old Farm House

 Here is a blurry, but spooky picture of a barn owl.
 An owl flew from the window of the old house, probably the mate to this one.

 The porch leans and the house leans, even the tree leans! I always wonder about an abandoned farm like this. Who lived there? What happened to them?

 I think it must have once been a very nice farm. It is located along highway 52 which runs
 north from Morris, Oklahoma toward 16.
Someone decorated for Christmas.
 See the Christmas lights?
What is interesting to me seeing an old place like this is how quickly a whole farm can degrade back down into the land. How soon it all is grown over with grass and shrubs and trees and decomposed  into the prairie. Some day people will pass and not be able to tell that a house and barn ever stood there.
