(Okay everyone, i'm back and hopefully some co-writers will come back with me too. The ones I'd like to request to join in are DaisyMaeDuke and B.L Davenport, no one else please ;-) )

Bo whistled as he tossed his work gloves in the space they belonged in the barn, walking back outside to the yard. On the way past, he gave Maudine an affectionate pat before plucking his shirt off the fence post he had just got done mending.

He shrugged it onto his shoulders and leant on the now sturdy fixed fence with a smile, looking around the farm yard that had been his home when he had been only 6 months old. He didn't know any other life, any other people who had been his family and he was happy with that. He was content to accept things the way they were, and look back on all the happy memories he had with those people over the years. The farm alone brought back so many, as long as the little reminders around the farm that sparked even more.

Luke finished splitting the last log, tossing the two pieces to the woodpile. He never understood how they went through so much wood, but it seemed that there was always wood to chop. Luke didn't mind, though. Given the choice, he would always choose har work over sitting around. His shirt was still hung on the porch rail and for a minute, he too just looked around at the farm, as the Georgia sun shone down on him.

He spotted Bo a distance off by the fence he had been working on and, grabbing his shirt, tugged it on as he walked over to his cousin, normally perpetual motion, and put a hand on his shoulder, nodding as he looked out over the farm, not saying anything, knowing with Bo there was no need to.

Bo glanced to Luke as he felt the familiar hand on his shoulder, smiling a little as Luke silently joined in his silent tribute to the farm and everything it meant to the family. For a long while, they just stood there together in silence as many many thoughts ran through their heads, it was of course Bo who broke the silence first.

"No matter how many times I see this landscape somethin's always changed..."

Bo nodded a little, finishing off Luke's unfinished sentence in his head as was a usual occurance between the boys. He too wished that some things could have stayed the same, like Luke never having gone to Vietnam for example...but then again he was glad some things had changed. Without change they would all be stuck in a rutt.

Bo finally tore his eyes away from the landscape and looked to his older cousin, one of the few faces that had always been constant in his life. The one person he could confide absoutly everything with, the one person who had supported him through absolutly everything even when others doubted him.

"Been a long time ain't it.."
