    This was most entertaining! I used this term today at lunch. My husband was musing aloud that he thought this term came from the purchase of a farm! “Lock” meaning the key to the domicile, “stock” meaning the livestock, and “barrel” meaning all the accoutrements associated with the property. I said that I thought it was in reference to the sale of a gun. THANK YOU for proving me right!!! I videotaped my husband saying “you were right”, because this may never happen again, hahahaha…..

    Have a wonderful day. I know I will!
