Surprise. . .Surprise. . .I've known for several weeks that Kevin Clark, Producer at AETN would be visiting The Country Farm Home and Duncan Farmstead but I kept it secret until it actually happened. . .Anything could have gone wrong. . .which takes me back to my frustration with the massive dust storm we had and the days of clean-up it took to get the house and farm back in order. . .We had a deadline to make. . .With diligence and determination, we made it. . .
Kevin is filming a documentary on vintage ARKANSAS BARNS that will air in August. . .He happened upon our two barns on the net and decided to include them. . .I thought it was just a matter of getting the grounds ready. . .and telling him the basics as he shot the photos. . .But that wasn't all. . .Once he arrived I found out differently. . .He wanted to interview John and myself also. . .We suddenly found ourselves sitting in front of two cameras. . .all wired up. . .telling the FARMSTEAD story. . .and the BARN HISTORY. . .I didn't have time to get nervous. . .although it's not easy to recall information on the spur of the moment. . .I think it went well, though. . .He has plenty to cut and edit for our little spot on the program. . .
Once the interview was done. . .Kevin decided he wanted shots of the FARMHOUSE KITCHEN also. . .As you know, our kitchen is representative of the 1930s. . .making for a Depression Period or Vintage Farmhouse backdrop. . .
Kevin was born and raised in Northeast Arkansas. . .but has been working at AETN in Conway for 20 years. . .I think he enjoyed coming back to his roots. . .and spending time on the FARM. . .In fact, he stayed into Friday evening in order to catch an awesome sunset with a farmstead setting. . .Can't wait to see that one. . .Can't wait to see the entire program. . .But we'll all have to be patient. . .It won't be aired until August 2016. . .
This was such great fun. . .Our secret WISH is that one day a 30s-40s PERIOD MOVIE will be shot here. . .even if it's just a scene or two. . .Can you imagine?
Just DREAMING a little. . .
A busy time for us. . .but enjoyed it tremendously.
MANY, MANY THANKS, Kevin, for including us in your documentary. . .
We look forward to it's airing. . .Come back any time. . .
Now. . .For all our followers, hop on over to
for the outdoor segment of filming.
'SEE YOU THERE'
