Barn Charm

It has been quite awhile since I have participated in Barn Charm.  Missouri's landscape is dotted with barns - some in great shape, but sadly, many sagging with old age and neglect.  Today's barn is a drive-by shooting from our recent trip to Chamois.  It is the proud owner of a salvage yard and antique cars.  The owner is a distant relative of Jim's.  I've seen his cars in some of the local antique car shows, and let me tell you, they are works of art.

 
So how about it.  Head on over to Bluff Area Daily and check out all of the other barns from around the world. 
 
I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.  The Missouri temperatures are still in the upper 60's.  We have been promised rain - thunderstorms to be exact.  Since the drought has continued through the winter, we will gladly and pleadingly take that promise of rain.  Tomorrow's forecast?  Why snow, of course!

Oh the stories that barn could tell!

I saw an interesting barn today, it was red and on the roof was I assume to be a painted horse.
