Notice the corn is brown, ready for harvest. We saw a couple of places where the farmers were already out with their combines, getting in this years crop. The house in the next picture goes with the above barn. It's been abandoned, too.
Often, when riding with Cliff on the motorcycle, I keep my camera handy and take pictures of old barns. There are so few of them around, these days; and given another fifty years, there will probably be almost none left, at least in Missouri.
Recently, I noticed that in Wisconsin, those old barns have been well cared for, and many are still in use. I wish that were true around here.
And I wish I'd taken some pictures of those well-cared-for Wisconsin barns. But I didn't.
