A saying my parents occassionally used when a description or instructions were long and wordy was ‘that was by way of grandfather’s barn’. I was wondering from where did this originate or was it something my family made up!

That was discussed in this broadcast.   Grant’s description of the broadcast touches on the discussion but if you’ll listen to the program you’ll get a thorough answer.
