Barn Charm




Barn idioms...

"He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn" is a popular expression for a person having poor aim when throwing an object or when shooting at something.

To "lock the barn door after the horse has bolted" implies that one has solved a problem too late to prevent it.

"Were you raised in a barn?" is an accusation used differently in various parts of the English-speaking world, but most commonly as a reprimand when someone exhibits poor manners by either using ill-mannered language or leaving doors open.

I don't think my comment went thru just now...

but, I've said that last one several times around work... guys just can't get it thru their heads that you have to close the door when the a/c or the heat is on! =)

Great barn shots & what a LOOOONG barn that 1st one is... something would seriously have to be wrong not to hit the broad side of that one! LoL! =)

Thanks so much for joining in & linking up to Barn Charm

ps I love it when they include the date on barns... I only wish they'd all do it.

Speaking of, I'm going to have to talk to my parent's & have them add the date on their barn, too. =)
