A New Jersey state of mind

Toss Me A Cigarette

This song is not by any means my favorite, because that would
be difficult to choose.  But it contains references that really
touch on my fondness of my country and home state.
  Turnpikes and pies are good examples.
And I have been in the Greyhound terminal in Pittsburgh as well.

The underlying, and seemingly undetectable purpose of this post
was to build up to the 4th of July weekend, when an almost
overwhelming feeling of pride and patriotism washes over
me and turns me into a huge mass of sentimental mush.
BTW, careful with that Roman Candle, Pepe!     


  1. Wow, spot on with that song. I heard it a couple of days ago and got all choked up. Who ever thought recollecting the NJ Turnpike could move one to homesickness (?).

    Oh yeah, and you may want to keep Hazel away from the pyrotechnics. Kx

  2. This song was the main reason I moved from England to New Jersey. Counting the cars sounded so romantic...

    Now I'm empty and aching and I don't know why.

    Oh yes, it's probably because I went Laser sailing yesterday evening and I haven't had breakfast yet.

  3. That hot dog cracked me up, Baydog! You can't stage that shit up! (I'm still laughing!!!)
