Dinner Bell

Frying Pan Bell

This is our dinner bell. It is simply an old cast iron frying pan hung at the side of our cottage by some polywire with a stick hanging below. The poly wire is important, other strings decay in the sunlight and weather but the polywire has stainless steel strands which hold up.

We also use walkie-talkies and calls to communicate over the distances of the farm but there is something homey about the iron bell.

Outdoors: 34°F/24°F Sunny
Tiny Cottage: 66°F/62°F

Daily Spark: When someone starts out by saying, “In all honesty…” or “To tell the truth…” it gives me the impression that normally they lie.

    My mom used something like this to call the pigs home – very effective.

    With two teenage boys I’m surprised that you’d even need to ring a dinner bell. Seems like they’d be underfoot the whole time, looking for food.

    Is that a ferris wheel up on the background?!
