Back in the day I spent quite a few hairy times
standing on these boards.
Quite often there was a fair breeze
and capturing the wheel,
spinning just above one’s head was the first feat.
Above seven or eight years ago
I found the mill had blown over.
The worst part was getting anyone to fix it.
However, many people have helped themselves
to what ever they have been able to steal.
Even this mill has been dragged 20-30 feet away
from where it should be and
all those parts underground removed.
Last year I discovered a 3,000 gallon
water tank had been stolen.
And all because we no longer live there
