The Pick-Up Road
Today, around noon or so, I left to pick up the girl of the house. She spent the night with a good friend, a friend who happens to live at the opposite end of our rural county.
It's about a forty-five minute drive....want to come along?
It will take us about twenty minutes to get to, "town". Five minutes to get through this small town and then onward to a tiny country road. A road with old trucks and tractors parked in a new barn.
A road with tobacco drying racks sitting on a hillside.
A road that used to be rife with busy farms and farmhouses full of life.
My final destination is an old farmhouse, and I mean over one hundred fifty years old. Sitting next to it is this newish barn, with the perfect shade of red.
"Success is not a destination, but the road that you're on. Being successful means that you're working hard and walking your walk everyday. You can only live your dream by working hard towards it. That's living your dream."
