Barn Charm_May 23, 2012_ Alabama barn in Mud Bottom

 ~






 ~~~

This is a barn in north Alabama
 ( Mud Bottom area-near the Elk River) 
where my husband grew up.
  It was a neighbor's barn and holds many fond memories for Charles, of times spent hanging out with his brothers and friends here.

 To a country kid,  in those bygone times, a barn like this was a cool place to spend  your leisure time.

This picture is one of many I have taken
 of this barn over the years. 
It amazes me that so many barns in the south are still standing and , in many cases, are still in use. This one in particular is still in good shape...to be 100 years old or older!



I wonder if farm kids of today still  enjoy the simple pleasures of time spent  in and around old barns like this.

I hope they do!
