Everything evolves, even Chattel houses. In this instance the wood house is dead or dying and out of its wretched soul is the rising of a Wall (brick) House. Even though many Chattel houses can be seen around the island, they are fast becoming a thing of the past.

Sparrows are such wonderful small creatures. In Barbados there are so plentiful, and not having any natural predator to contend with they flourish. Their continuous darting and disjunctive flying fascinates me.

In my childhood these lovely creatures have always gotten in the way of my FLY-TRAPS that were set for doves. So naturally, I hated them. But now it is all different. I am completely captivated by the shear beauty of the common Barbadian sparrow.

This tractor has not seen a sugarcane plantation in a while. Nor has it hauled cane grass for cattle like in the old days. It has seen its share of thankless hard labor.

But when you sugar your tea, eat a lovely steak, or just enjoyed some nice cheese, just remember tractors like this dismembered one has done its job. Just be thankful than you did not have to go pull the sugarcane to sweeten your precious tea.
