"That barn was a real learning experience. It took much longer and so much more paint than I thought. The wood was never painted and was so weathered with deep groves from so many years of being exposed to the weather. Ended up drinking abt 5-1/2 gallons of oil based primer. That was done on a thur & fri evening. Sat morn I started painting the red and working on the letters CHEW & POUCH. As I said the boards were very distressed and groved so when you went to paint a straight line the paint got down in the grooves and went other directions. Mon I finished the POUCH and added the MAIL. Thur evening I added the word TOBACCO and layed out the tag line TREAT YOURSELF TO THE BEST. Fri & Sun to finish up. If the wood had been newer I could have done it in a fraction of the time. Lesson learned! Mom, Bob Klien, and owner Elan Yarkovski help some with the painting. A few people tooted there horns in passing. Elen's father "Hoss" stopped by and so did my Aunt Nina and two cousins." - Lonnie Schnauffer
