Adam walked through the family apple orchard that had been started by his great-grandfather. He hoped to be able to pass it down to his daughters one day. The old orchard had seen the family through good times and bad times, droughts and feasts. He wasn’t going to lose it now, thought as he got in the old Ford, tossing the letter from the county tax assessor into the passenger seat. There wasn’t anything he could do about it that night, so he tried to push it to the back of his mind.
Driving down the old dirt road listening to his favorite artists, he started singing along. Songs about learning how to drive brought back memories of his father, and watching the dirt kick up behind the truck reminded him of how he met his April. It was as if his late momma was trying to tell him something when he pulled in front of the house with Lonestar playing and saw his gorgeous wife and little blue-eyed blondes standing there waving, welcoming him home. He sat in the truck as the song finished. “Thanks, Mom.”
This was inspired by the Three Things Challenge
The first thing that came to my mind though were three songs:
Lonestar’s Front Porch Looking In
Alan Jackson’s Drive
Sara Evans’ Suds In The Bucket
