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
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

Merry Christmas

To all, have a Very Merry Day! With your families and friends.
The Missus and I are headed to Palmdale and the afternoon with Debbie and Ralph. Got him a 12 of Modelo Negra for the drive up a couple of weeks ago to unload. It is pretty good stuff.
Strange with no kids/grandkids for the first time in 27 years, though.

Merry Christmas to you - it's quite a gift to be breathing and walking the earth isn't it? Hope you enjoy the holiday and get your new year off to a great start.

Sue-After the September I had, yup!
The details are in the archives if you are interested. No picture of the big incision though! LOL. And it was complete with the staples.

It WOULD be a strange Christmas with no children or grandchildren! Our children/grandchildren were at the other grandparents' for Thanksgiving, so it was the first time in 32 years we've had a Thanksgiving alone.

/It was kinda nice, actually.

And Pixie's Grandma had a full house!

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
