The good citizens of Culberson slept soundly at night knowing their magnificent Centurion stood faithful watch over them. Dignified, with pride of purpose. Ready to serve.
At least until a later visit to this old fire station. What once was, now gone forever, had been summarily erased by a four-lane highway. On yet another trip I spotted this fugitive in an auto junk yard overwhelmed by an entanglement of honeysuckle. Without a doubt, for those of us denizens stuck in romantic fantasies of the past, the message has to be 'get over it.'
