Old Red Barn – My uncle Vic, born in 1900, had an old red barn on his farm in Goodland, MN many years ago. My memories of that barn are of approximately 45+ years ago. It looked very weathered at the time. It housed his animals, their feed and his "old Whiskey still". Next to the barn was a hedgerow of plum trees. He would mix the plums, sugar and other things to make a wine like mixture to be distilled into what he lovingly called "Plum Whisky". It was tapped it off at about 140 proof and would really sneak up on you. He also made wine, tanned leather and did all the other things associated with people of that genre and generation. For those of you who have read my Bio, Vic was one of Charles X. Carlson’s older brothers. The barn looked something like this painting. Your comments are welcome.
