The Pollinator's Journey

A singer in a smokey room,
The smell of wine and cheap perfume,
For a smile they can share the night,
It goes on and on and on.

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.

Samosa

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.

Can't You See

Gonna buy me a ticket, as far as I can,
Ain't a never coming back,
Ride me a southbound,
All the way to Georgia now,
Til that train runs out of track.
Can't you see, oh can't you see,
What that woman, Lord,
She's been doing to me.

Just a Matter of Time


I saw you again last night
I caught you catching my eye, 
I love to stare at you,
Through the smoke and the lights,
Well I can see that I,
See that I just want to hold you,
I just want to know you,
I just want to spend the night wrapped up in you,
But it's all, it's all,
Just a matter of time.
