Mother, Mother Ocean
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker
Counted the Stars
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

A friend of mine had this on Facebook today. It gives one a bit of an insight to the character of General Mattis.
I understand why those Marines who served under him feel the way they do.

Went to the family doctor Wednesday about my acute weight loss. 26 pounds in 15 months.
Referrals are being sent to Tricare for a scan from the neck to the groin and a colonoscopy.
I'm due for the scope anyway.
He used the term "tumor hunt" in the conversation.
Trying to deal with that.......

The situation is now remedied.............................
After I fueled the Titan at the Edwards AFB Shopette, I went inside to get a few things and lo and behold, they had a small variety of decent cigars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After getting home to Casa de Sharon y Glenn, I spent a little time on the front verandah as Buck would say.
