Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Evening at The Hangar, Home of the Lancaster Jethawks

We decided to have a baseball weekend of sorts. The California League season is over this weekend and our local team, The Lancaster Jethawks is home for the final 4 game series against the Inland Empire 66ers.
Evenings are now a little more tolerable this time of year.
Missus ORPO and I

Beautiful evening for baseball in The Antelope Valley

Fat Tire at Red Lobster after the game.

Kinetic Brewing Golden Ale. Kinetic is our local micro brewery. All their flavours are great!

Old Fashioned Scoreboard.
We are heading down for the season finale this evening. Pics from that at a later point in the Space Time Continuom.

Earthquake in Nor Cal

The mighty hand of Mother Nature struck in the wee hours this morning up in the Wine Country of California.
I got up about an hour or so and when checking my usual stuff, saw a short bit on it online from an acquaintance.......
6.0, with some healthy after shocks. One of those was a 3.6.
So far there are 3 people reported to have serious injuries. Major damage in Sonoma and Napa.
There will be updates all day. I have KTLA on right now.
Positive Waves and as Buck Pennington says, I hope the Diety at Hand has interest in all these folks recovering from the quake.

Treadmill results for today

This has become SOP 3 times a week since my VA check up this past spring.
Pre diabetic is what my doctor at the Lancaster Veterans Community Based Outreach Clinic said.
I do an hour at 2.5 mph.
I also have to cut my carb intake.

Plane Pr0n-Bear Style

I stole this from Jeff Hollenbeck. It was on his Facebook page.
I think it is really cool.

On the Verandah

Home at Casa de Sharon y Glenn.
Since Missus ORPO and I were able to enjoy the fine company of a few of the Lexicans last night....
I also had to let Buck Pennington know that I am going to do this on occasion.
Twas a most excellent gathering.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
