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

Yoda

"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."
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker

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

My other blog

Be advised, my other blog has a new name. I decided to give it a more relevant title as to the new life. So, it is now Somewhere in The Antelope Valley. The link/address is still the same http:/retiredpo1.wordpress.com/
I am still doing the shakedown cruise on it as well as this one on occasion. As some who are regulars know the ability to read easily is paramount. Me, Buck, kc and the gang are partial to layouts that are easy to read.

Heh. "Other Blog" made me flash on the ol' Bob Newhart show... "this is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl..."

Are ya gonna keep both blogs? Or will one fall by the wayside?

Far out! I love the flashback!
I had a supervisor and a lead at Learjet named Larry and a supervisor named Darryl. All three were standing at the desk one fine day. Guess what yours truly did? I had to take flight!
It was "it's my leadman, Larry, his brother Darryl and his other brother, Darryl." Just being my lovable self, ya know!
Keeping them both. The other one is for some commentors who don't have accounts with anyone and nice ladies like Kath. Sometimes the rough edged sailor stuff is a bit much for some folks. Not PC, flexible as a good Leading Petty Officer should be.
