Barn Charm Tuesday




Today's barn comes all the way from West Virginia. I didn't actually take this photo, a relative of this barn sent it to us. We were at the Salem Red Sox game on Friday night and there was this nice little family sitting behind us. They were on vacation from West Virginia and had stopped over to take their little boy to the Red Sox game before heading back home. Well, as we were chatting with this couple, for some reason the subject of barns came up and Misti was telling us about her Uncle's barn which sits on the property adjoining theirs. She said that after 9/11, her cousin, if I remember correctly, painted a big US Flag on the top of the barn and it was even featured on the cover of Country Living magazine! Nick asked her if she would send a picture to me so I could use it for my blog and she had one on her phone and sent it right to my husband's phone! I just sent her a message on Facebook to let her know I'm using it today. I did do a little Google search and found this on it, which also has a good picture of the flag on the barn. Pretty cool huh?!

  5. Oh, what a story and what an image, Tanya. I don't usually go for rote shows of patriotism, but this is just inspiring. Even without the flag I thought "location, location, location" when I opened your post but that flag. Hope it's in the flight path so that many people can see it from the sky.
