    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful link and for inspiring everyone else to share pictures of barns they found beautiful. Such lovely and energizing snippets in time. :huddle:

    OK, I'll ask.

    What happened to the barn? It must've been an amazing piece of architecture when it was brand new.

    Well it wasn't the barn that had a sad ending... It was a farmhand... Apparently he was working up into the wee hours as farmers are known to do and didn't make it through the nite… The authorities come to the conclusion that he ran himself to death... Everyone asked why did he run himself to death? Sherriff said the only logical thing was he was looking for a corner to take a leak in... :auiqs.jpg:...

    Don't forget to tip your waitress's...
