Truck Driver's Coffee Shop
If it's Thursday, it must must be time to haul out the big rigs for a little convoy.
This post goes out to "Kat" at Keep the Coffee Coming, one of my favorite sites in the whole world wide web. If you haven't visited yet, you really oughta. I'm not telling you what to do, of course. Just suggestin'.
What strikes me most about Keep the Coffee Coming is how untainted it seems. No pretense. Just really fantastic music that she seems to really like for the sake of the song, not for the sake of selling a product (or selling oneself). An increasingly novel idea. Richie Havens, Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. Thats' just a small sampling. It seems to me that her site comes the closest to what this whole blogging thing is all about...that moment when you tell yr friends "You've got to hear this song."
So, coffee, coffee, coffee. Truck drivers and coffee. The legal way to drive.
"That waitress done brought me some coffee
I thanked her then called her back again
I said you know that song it sure does fit me
cause I'm a truck drivin' man
Pour me another cup of coffee
for it is the best in the land
I'll put another quarter in the jukebox
and play the Truck Drivin' Man"
