MOVING TO BUSH MOUNTAIN

My sweet niece, Tara, and her equally sweet husband, Will, have bought a house waaay out in the woods. Well, not really, but it seems that way to us who have lived right next to someone else all our lives. They are on a road that includes much land that his family owns, and hunts on. There is his grandmother's old house that they have turned into a hunting club, and a creek that runs through it all. Several of his cousins and friends and wives live there and they all enjoy doing things together. So we are very happy for them, and know they will enjoy being near their family and friends. The house is set back off the road, and has a beautiful porch running all around it.

Will, is the one I give a hard time to about hunting. I really can't stand the thought of it. But, I realize that not everyone feels the way I do. And, I have come to learn that Will has a sweet gentleness about him. So, I think he is very at ease with hunting and hunts very responsibly. I trust that his heart will do what is right. He even gave me a book for Christmas titled, THE POLITICALLY CORRECT GUIDE TO HUNTING. I haven't read it yet, but he says it will explain to me why hunters are doing their part to keep the wildlife population healthy.

And, it's not really called Bush Mountain, but Pop started calling it that, and so forever more it will be called that by our family. It just feels right. Last night, it rained and stormed terribly here and I couldn't sleep...so I wrote them a song:

BUSH MOUNTAIN (to the tune of She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain)

Oh! They're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh! They're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
That young couple, Will and his bride
They say they don't want to hide
They're just moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh!......
They unloaded all their boxes
Alerted all the foxes
That they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes Indeed!

Oh! They're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes Indeed!
Oh!.......
They'll be snug and warm and cozy
If the snakes don't get their toesies
And they're moving......

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh!......
There will be wild life on the outside
And wild life on the inside :)
Cause they're moving...

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh!.....
They'll make sweet memories together
No matter what the weather
Cause they're moving..

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh!.....
I hope that we can visit...
Will we need a hunting permit?
When you're living...

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain,,,Yes, Indeed!
Oh!....
For our visit, just set the date
And, NO deer meat on MY plate
When you're living......

Oh! they're moving to Bush Mountain...Yes, Indeed!
Oh!.....
Now, the Hunting Club's excited
And all the wives delighted
That they're moving to Bush Mountain,,,Yes, Indeed!
