This is the crib that was crib that you glimpse in the first photo of this post. It has stood there for longer than I have lived...it had been a 3 or 4 years since I was near it. The last time I saw it, it was not leaning as it is now.
I thought I would show you the barn from the farm Roger and I lived on for a short while early in our marriage. We pass by the old corn crib on the way to the barn....
Ain't it a beauty! Roger thinks that tree is actually helping to keep the barn from leaning.
When we lived there, I don't think the tree was any taller than the barn, if as tall.
And the barn did not have any boards missing...I have no idea how old it is. I think it had been there as long as our family lived there. This farm used to belong to my grandfather on my dad's side of the family.
In all the years I have seen this place I once called home, I have never seen it as grown up as it is now. When we were kids, the people that owned it by lived in Michigan and only came down about once a year. They paid us to keep the yard mowed...
Barns are about the only thing I captured while in Tennessee...and most of those were drive-bys because we were on twisting, winding roads that were dangerous to even pause on. This was a prize find for me.
We had Lorelei for the past three days, and took her to meet her dad today...on our way home we took the scenic route. We always meet at the intersection that is south of Greencastle...and have never taken the 231 north from there. So we did today...when we got to Greencastle, we headed west.
I cannot remember just how far we had gone till we turned off that road to one less traveled...but almost as soon as we turned off that road, this came into our view.
I took photos from all sides except for one and I do wonder what was on it.
As you can see the sides that I could see all had something on them...
