Story

Life in the Shenandoah Valley is a little slower and less competitive than where I grew up, but even the simple life has layers of complexity.

We moved out to the country because we love hiking and canoeing, but we spend our time cutting firewood and driving kids to town. We'd do more hiking if we lived in an apartment in town. Still wouldn't trade it, though.

All I Need Copyright 2008-09-30 Dave Nealon

Don't take much to make me happy; work the land with my hands That's really all I need Rolling hills, lazy river, catch the sunset when I can That's really all I need

And a 50 horsepower zero turn mower, hydrostatic rear transaxle Front-load bucket and a cup to hold my beer Ergonomic steering handles, dumpbed and a high-back chair That's really all I need

Don't take much to make me happy; spend the evening with my family That's really all I need Catching up with conversation; life and laughter slow and rambling That's really all I need

But my first wife's got the stepkids Sunday, soccer Saturday, music Monday Nightschool class to finish my degree And my inlaw sister's ex-fiancé, Welcome to the extended family After all it's really all I need

How about a high definition wide screen television Surround sound connected to my digitronic ultrasonic blue ray theater

Don't take much to make me happy; spend the evening with my family That's really all I need Don't take much to make me happy; work the land with my hands That's really all I need
