Josh in the Woods

My parent's live out in the middle of no where. Literally....no...where.

We drove out there tonight to celebrate my mom's birthday.
It takes us about an hour to get there.

My dad built his house smack dab in the middle of 40 acres of very wooded property. You drive down and around a gravel lane to get to their house that is nestled in between a lot of trees and rolling hills. It's gorgeous out there. Dad recently built himself a "workshop" about 100 yards from their house. It's a plain white rather large building with an upstairs. There is a steeple type thing with a weather vain that sits on top of the building. It almost resembles a country church. It's very quaint. Anyway, he put a surround sound stereo system out in the workshop. The sound quality is unreal. When Reagan goes out to visit, she loves to put on classical music and dance inside there.
Tonight we opened up the doors to his workshop and put Josh's hallmark CD on. I sat outside and heard Josh echo through the woods and into the night air. It was magical. I could do that every night of my life.

I told Dad "I bet your neighbors way down the road wonder what on earth you do down here in these woods."
