    The Fog Watch was a poem by Vic Sadot's Uncle George Reuter that Vic adapted to music. The poet looks into the fog and a vision of the past comes rolling through. There are two drovers in an oxen drawn wagon taking their harvest to market. In the days before paved roads this trek was an annual overnight adventure that the farmers looked forward to. As they trod over the muddy roads they talk about what they want to buy when they get to the market in Dover, Delaware. "First I'll buy cloth for my good lady Sadie, a bottle of rum for my good neighbor Brady, flour for bisuits, some bacon and beans, seed for growing spring garden greens on my land. " A trip that takes us a few hours today required an overnight stay at the Mermaid Tavern Inn on the way to and on the way back from the marketplace.
