A covered bridge is a timber-truss bridge with a roof, decking, and siding, which in most covered bridges create an almost complete enclosure. The purpose of the covering is to protect the wooden structural members from the weather. Uncovered wooden bridges typically have a lifespan of only 20 years because of the effects of rain and sun, but a covered bridge could last 100 years.
I love covered bridges.
I think of all the people who have walked or ridden across them.
The lovers who met in the middle, hidden from prying eyes.
The soldiers who took shelter from the storms.
How many proposals were made under the roof?
How many babies were born upon the boards of the bridge?
Yes, I love covered bridges.

I wanted a place to share my coffee thoughts, and although I use Facebook & Twitter to do just that, I realize that many people are getting fed up with all the drama that is on either, and both. So many that were using those 2 social medias to stay in touch, have taken a step back - yet they still want to know thoughts that go thru this scattered widow's brain. If you are interested, here it is :) - - without the drama.
