The Mercy Of The Wheels by MARX77 The Mercy Of The Wheels by MARX77
I'd like to catch a train
That could go back in time
That could make alot of stops
Along the way
I would go to see me Father
With the eyes he left behind
I would go for all the words
I'd like to say
And I'd take along a sandwich
And a picture of my girl
And show them all
That I made out ok

From the song: The Mercy Of The Wheels by John Gorka.


Okay, so no trains here - just a Pashtun Roti delivery guy riding a bicycle.

Al Diyafah Road - Dubai, U.A.E.

I have a world clock app installed in my browser,

Like it's 08:36 in Auckland right now,and Doug's probably waking up, all cranky and with a terrible hangover. :lol:
