The Turnpike Troubadours

One Saturday evening we drove to Cumberland, Maryland for the annual Tri-State Wing-Off. We hung out in the shade and enjoyed a few wings and some of the opening acts. The Davidson Brothers, whom I had never heard of, turned out to be pretty darn good. Then it was the Old 97's. They've been around a while and I've heard some of there stuff. When the Turnpike Troubadours came on stage we worked our way through the crowd to a good spot. We were not disappointed, the were awesome. I was amazed at how many people knew all the words for a band you don't hear on the radio. Ever. They're out of Oklahoma and have been around only a few years. They are one of my favorite Red Dirt bands.

Indian River County Emergency Services, Station 10

Indian River County Emergency Services, Station 10, 62 North Broadway, Fellsmere, Florida. Researched failed me on this station. There was a Fellsmere Volunteer Fire Department. They possibly went inactive November 9, 1990. At that time they may have joined the South Indian River County Fire District and by a referendum vote in 1991 the SIRCFD became the Indian River County Department of Emergency Services (now IRCES). Station 10 was opened in 1996.

Time and again, I see you walking down the street,
Over and over, just like before,
Once in a while you stop and say hello to me,
Just like you used to do before,
Time and again, it's like we were in love and then,
Over and over, nobody keeping score,
Once in awhile I think you notice when I smile,
That love still lingers in my eyes.
