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!
