My father, Raymond Dayton Barr, was an expert carpenter and loved building things for our home and for his children.This is a merry-go-round that he put in our backyard. In the summer, when we were a little older than in the picture, my sister and I and some of our neighborhood friends would hold a little carnival and put on plays for other kids in the neighborhood. The merry-go-round was always a big hit.  We also had a playhouse that he made for us. When I had children, he made little tables and chairs for each of them, and painted silly messages on the bottom, like 'Built with love by Daddio."
