Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"

Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."

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

Central Coast for Independence Day

Missus ORPO and I are tied up at a  pretty nice room on Camp San Luis Obispo.
It is 59 degrees at 0153 hours. When we left California City, it was 102!
We hit Woodstock's Pizza for dinner and got to Tap It Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo to fill the Growler with Ale Camino Amber Ale.

Mojave 6-27-15

I had to make a run to the Mojave-Rosamond Landfill today to get rid of the treadmill that took a powder and some fans that also bit the dust.

It was a mostly overcast day for a while. I should have hauled my camera...................These were taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Elaborate, $2.6 million model aircraft carrier donated to Naval Academy

Donated Model Aircraft Carrier

Some of The Lexicans had this linked all over Facebook Monday and Tuesday. It is now the wee hours of my Regular Day Off and I am enjoying Red Eye and Firestone Walker 805...............It seemed like a good idea for a post....................

"The 84-year-old craftsman, who made his first model from cardboard in the late 1930s, has donated to the Naval Academy his magnum opus: a 12-foot, 3,600-pound, brass model of the USS Forrestal."

This is one really bitchin machine! The Stuff Works on it!
Having served on two Forrestal Class Ships, this one is kinda special.

Perhaps OldAFSarge, Christopher Goodrich will get some pictures should he venture down the Atlantic Seaboard to The Trade School on The Severn.............................
More outstanding pictures and the full story at the link below.

The Front Yard

The landlord of Casa de Sharon y Glenn decided to go drought compatible.
This is the result. He also owns the house next door.
I had to pull out my flower boxes, though.

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson set to launch his own airline

Wow!

I admit that I do listen to Iron Maiden from time to time and was aware that Bruce Dickinson was a commercial pilot.

I wish his new venture all the best!

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson, 56, is taking on pilots and crew after purchasing a Boeing 737
