Hello Readers – Combining #Treesquares with Lens-Artists’ because the theme is “along back country roads” – and last June, we ventured into the country to hear a Lynard Skynard cover band (called Street Survivor) at the Caroline County fair. We knew a couple of the band members and it was a fun afternoon.

You can see the trees in the background and the little tress up front – and I think this photo was snapped when they were singing “Call me the Breeze” (live from ’75 on YOUTUBE here)
And for today’s song, let’s go with the classic Skynard song, Free Bird
It was very hot this day and we had some “fresh from the farm” Chicharrones (very filling and $5.00 for a large bag – I had never had fresh pork rinds so that was an experience too).
I thought of Clive & BB with sharing the band images today – and also have some of the old sewing machines to show Tierney later this year. Because walking around that day they had CBD oil, quilts, and a tractor competition.
I do not have Skynard songs on my playlists, but as the music played that day, I sure did enjoy going down memory lane. I knew every song they played – from childhood radio play. You know, drink your milk, have your oatmeal and enjoy Lynard Skynard on the radio. Something like that! There is something refreshing about their songs (IMO).
Some people danced (wish I had the guts to get out there with them) and some waved their hands. One lady, with a walker, cried when it was over and that was inspiring to see her so moved. The people at her table were cool. I gave her a hug as we left (and grabbed a picture – ha – to maybe share later).
I was originally going to share this post on the 4th of July but went with a different post that day- and so here are the other flag photos I had lined up for the 4th – taken in FL:
