Happy Hour

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

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

The Road

At the Motel 6 in Santa Rosa

Out of Santa Rosa going toward Clines Corner, Moriarty and ABQ

The snow begins!
Starting to get interesting!

And it gets heavier

There was an accident ahead


The Red Rocks East of Gallup
This evening in Gallup
It was an interesting day to say the least. It is about 260 miles. It took us close to six and one half hours. It began between Santa Rosa and Moriarty. Then the pass over into Albuquerque. Good going till around Acoma and Sky City. Then it got really nasty!

At present I-40 Westbound is closed at Gallup. All the way to West of Ash Fork. Going to be a short day.
Winter along I-40! Got to love it!
I have till Sunday AM to turn the trailer in. And it is in Cal City! Yeah! We may spend part of Saturday on the road and unload into the garage on arrival.
There is better than a foot in Flagstaff with the snow level at 3000 feet elevation.

Theo Spark-Killing Our Enemies On Christmas Day Since 1776

Another good one from Theo Spark. The place is The Last of The Few.

Killing Our Enemies On Christmas Day Since 1776

Subject:: Man Jokes

Subject: Man Jokes

--- VERY BRAVE MAN JOKES ---

How do you turn a fox into an elephant?

Marry It!

What is the difference between a battery and a woman?

A battery has a positive side.

What are the three fastest means of communication?

1) Television
2) Telephone
3) Telawoman
What should you give a woman who has everything?

A man to show her how to work it.

Why is the space between a woman's breasts and her hips called a waist?

Because you could easily fit another pair of tits in there.

Put a nipple on it.

Why do women rub their eyes when they wake up?

Nothing, she's been told twice already.

If your wife keeps coming out of the kitchen to nag at you, what have you
done wrong?
Made her chain too long

How many men does it take to open a beer?

None. It should be opened when she brings it.

Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up a woman?

Because a woman who can't even afford a washing machine will probably never be able to support you.

Why do women have smaller feet than men?

The dog, of course. He'll shut up once you let him in.

What's worse than a Male Chauvinist Pig?

A woman who won't do what she's told

I married a Miss Right.

I just didn't know her first name was Always.

Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a woman's sex drive by

90%..

It's called a Wedding Cake.

Why do men die before their wives?

They want to.

Women will never be equal to men..

until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.



Send this to a few good men who need a laugh and to the select few women
 
who can handle the truth

Sort of related to the previous post

From January of this year. 180 degrees from the previous post. This was a direct result of the fallout after tailhook. For the old warhorses who read this know what that was.
Serves to say that the Navy has never been the same since.
And there were other things from long ago as it were. The Hospital Ship Sanctuary had severe issues with fraternization and the Samuel L. Gompers to a certain degree.
But when I saw this last winter, well..............................yeah. And Captain Graf's younger sister is a Rear Admiral(LH). Lower Half OK? That is a BGEN in the other Forces. One star.
If the reader gets the idea that I am of a certain opinion, then so be it. When I went in the Navy, the women were still called WAVES.
It is by and large a generational difference. But being reared by a Dad who was in the M1, M14 and then the M16 Army, would you expect anything else.
Sort of like the young Navy LT Hornet Pilot on USS Nimitz in the PBS series Carrier. Upset that her stateroom was on the 03 level. This is directly under the flight deck. Noisy. Really Noisy. And understand that on a carrier, catapult launches and arrested landings can be heard on the mess decks, HMMMMMMMMMMM?

As an old school sea dog, one should realize what my take is on the subject.
And having been retired for over seventeen years, the coed thing was brand spanking new then.
All I have to go on is my brother in law's experiences on Nimitz in 1994 during it's first coed deployment.

Ten Lessons that Illegal Aliens Can Teach American Citizens

Courtesy of Jeff. He got it from John Lillpop

Ten Lessons that Illegal Aliens Can Teach American Citizens

By John W. Lillpop

With the DREAM Act and comprehensive immigration reform in the news again, it is worth noting that the 12-4John W. Lillpop0 million illegal aliens currently squatting in America have several valuable lessons that American citizens would do well to learn.

The Top Ten Lessons that Illegal Aliens Can Teach American Citizens:

1. “Undocumented” and “Illegal Alien” Are Old-School Terms, Meant to Demean Brown People Who Speak Spanish. “Newly Arrived Refugees” Is the Preferred Liberal-Speak Designation;

2. Enforcing U.S. Immigration Laws Is, According to Nancy Pelosi, Both un-American and Immoral;

3. With Respect to Latinos Migrating North,
America’s Borders Are Arbitrary and non-binding;

4. La Raza Is the Spanish Term for Race-Neutral;

5. Paying Income Taxes Without Provocation Is Reckless and Irresponsible. Best to Wait for a Great Offer from Democrats Running for Office;

6. One Can Choose to Vote Democratic, or To Not Vote At All. There Are No Other Options.

7. Learning to Read and Write English Is Entirely Optional, Based Solely on the Needs and Desires of the Alien.

8. U.S. Citizenship Is Not Required to Vote.

9. Massive Street Marches to Demand Citizenship Are Protected Free Speech When Carried Out By Illegal Aliens; Whereas, Counter Marches by U.S. Citizens Are Racist and Extreme Acts That Should Be Shut-down by Government;

10. Illegal Aliens Are Entitled to Free Education, Health Care, Food, and Housing As Just Compensation for Living in the Very Racist and Bigoted America.

Brought to American citizens by the Democrat Party!

New Horizon Air Paint on Q400s

In the colors of Montana State Fighting Bobcats

U of Montana Grizzlies
Two new collegiate based schemes now in service with Horizon Air. They also have UW, WSU, Oregon, Oregon State, Boise State and Idaho in the fleet. Horizon will eventually be the largest single operator of the Bombardier Dash 8 Q 400 series in North America. The CRJ 700s are going to other carriers. Horizon functions as a feeder for it's parent, Alaska Airlines.  Some of these operate on routes as long as Seattle Tacoma to Billings and Eugene to Los Angeles.
And as a native of Montana I think these are really good looking airplanes.

Note on the F-35C

I found out that the F-35C, the carrier version of the Joint Strike Fighter is not equipped with an INTEGRAL boarding ladder. And this aircraft is going to sea. Aboard ship, where space is at a premium. Not an intelligent move.
I have a friend who is with Lockheed Martin, the prime airframe contractor. He informed me that both the OSHA and NAVOSH were directly involved in this part of the design. These two agencies determined that there was a requirement for a ladder that allowed for both hands to be on the sides. Sort of like the boarding ladders on most Air Force tactical aircraft. Exception being the A-10.
Boarding ladders like we use on the F-16 are cumbersome, ungainly and at times a hazard themselves. Guess what gave me a hernia in September?
I understand that the AF operates from large land facilities and has the logistical assets to allow excessive support equipment. That is how they operate. Kind of complicated at times.
In Naval Air, simplicity was a key element of the process. Seems now that concept has been tossed into the shitcan.
See, I do let my service have it when I determine that a dressing down is necessary.
Because stupid has no boundaries and does not play favourites.
Somewhere is a Naval Aviator Flag Officer in serious need of being canned.

I am home in Cal City. The Missus ORPO has gone to get my prescription for Vicodin.
All went well.  I will be hard down for ten days. No lifting over ten pounds. And tonight is trash to the curb night. But we don't generate much anymore, being just the two of us.
To all who wished me well on face book,  thanks a lot. I truly mean that.

Dear Jerry Brown

Go fuck yourself.
You have no ideas, no abilities other than being an outright liar.
To all of you who voted for this lying piece of shit, the same. I hold all of you as not worthy to shine my shoes. Didn't the first go around with this maggot teach you anything?
And the Global Warming thing. What is wrong with you worthless shit stains.
Where was I? Oh yeah. Fuck you Jerry Brown.
And the Lt Gov will be Gavin, I am a married Fairy, Newsom. Looking for a job in Nevada or Arizona. Preferably Arizona, Open Carry, Sovereignty, things like that. No maggots.
And for All who read this. No apologies for the language. A life in the Sea Service hardens one.

Seems that the majority here in California still has a preference for lying, cheating, stoned sacks of shit. I speak first and foremost of Jerry Brown. Still tokin' on a number since 1976. This man caused massive damage in his first trip as gov. What in hell makes anyone think he will do ANY better? And for the love of all that is sacred, what were the rest of you asswipes thinking?
As for "call me senator" babbling barbara boxer, well, the rest of you got what you asked for. The old biddy needs to be sent home to bake cookies and knit for her grandchidren. She is a withered old hag with no values.
At least the House is in Conservative Hands. Well, I hope so. The first thing up is the requirement is repeal of Obama Care. Then to put the Bush tax cuts in force, permanently prior to dissolving the IRS and instituting a flat tax of 5 per cent.
Then the security of the Republic. Seal the borders. Round up and deport all who have broken the law to come here. Illegal Aliens. Yes, I said that. Illegal Aliens. It is what it is.
Then start carpet bombing any and all suspected Taliban and Al Queda hiding places. Even if it obliterates complete villages and towns. War is Hell. Give them Hell. All governments who support said groups, inform them of immediate hostilities. Fire first and often.
Nancy Pelousi. Not Speaker anymore. Still a fourteen carat Sphincter though. She will always be this.
Harry Reid. Cheated. It is his very nature. Along with his son and the SEIU.  I suggest a Vigilance Committee, 3-7-77. Rope, Tree, Scumbag. Some assembly required.
Patty "Sneakers" Murray. I remember when she first got elected. I was stationed in WA at the end of my Naval Career. Just so you know, she hates anyone in uniform or who has honorably served. A typical obamarrhoid before it was fashionable to be one. A Cow if there ever was one.
At least Oklahoma did one thing right. Judges are not allowed to use either international law or sharia in deliberations. Not At All. A Redneck State does something that even the asswipes inside the Beltway are incapable of doing.
Dear Mister Presumptive President. This was step one of driving a drift punch up your sorry ass with a spike maul. Good. Now go to India and then send the airplanes, helicopters and vehicles back. You like the third world shit holes so much, stay there.

Tentative from Fox News

It seems that The Wicked Witch of the West is losing her gavel. Couldn't have happened to more deserving slut.
Link is to Fox News.

Fox News Calls it for The GOP in The House

Yes. It is vile hatred. She and her two sidekicks, obamarrhoid and dirty scumbag harry cost me my job in Wichita last year when they decreed corporate aircraft to be evil tools and toys of the over rich.

Enemies as defined by TOTUS

This is from This Ain't Hell. Go over and read it. It will set the record straight. And I am sure that men like Me, Buck, MUD and a few others who show up here are not pleased AT ALL. I know that the whelp in chief should get a leather strap across the hindquarters. Impertinent boys require that at times.
This Ain't Hell

Plane Pr0n again

Special one here.
The 787 and the Model 40.
The 40 was Boeing's first commercial transport. And we all know about the Dreamliner and it's development problems.
Click for a larger one. This is awesome. The Dreamliner is just above it's stall speed. I do believe this was taken over the Puget Sound.
Historical Note: The Model 40 was built in the Little Red Barn. The building is at Boeing Field/King County International Airport at the Museum of Flight.

GET OUT AND VOTE

I DON'T CARE WHAT PARTY. OK, I REALLY DO. BUT IF YOU  STILL INSIST ON SUPPORTING THE DESTRUCTION OF THE REPUBLIC, THEN GO AHEAD. AT LEAST YOU VOTED.
I MANAGED TO VOTE IN TWENTY YEARS OF NAVAL SERVICE IN ALL BUT ONE. THAT WAS DUE TO MY OWN SCREW UPS. I ADMIT MY MISTAKES.

I GAVE THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE TO THE REPUBLIC. DO THE OLD SEADOG A FAVOR. GET OFF YOUR ASS AND MOVE.
PREFERABLY BEING PROPERLY REGISTERED. I BELIEVE THAT THE NINTH CIRCUIT SHOULD BE TRIED FOR TREASON FOR SUPPORTING NON RESIDENTS AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS PROTECTION TO VOTE.
I HAVE NO FEAR OF THE COMMIES. I AM A CITIZEN AND ACTIVE. JUST READ THIS BLOG AND SOME OF MY POSTS AT PARROTHEAD JEFF AND FRIENDS IN CASE YOU HAVE DOUBT ABOUT THAT.

Biathlon Close Quarter Battle Version



It did begin as a military competition after all.
Amusing.

Halloween Post

Thanks to Moonbattery.

Too good to pass up!

Dhimmitude. Obama Style.

Read this one at Chrissie's place, PC Free Zone.
The new health care plan makes for rather strange allowances, it does.
I sincerely hope every low life, shit sucking, maggot ridden demcommmie gets voted out on Tuesday and then tarred and feathered upon return to their home districts.

More Gratuitous Plane Pr0n

Wart Hog:


This is the Airplane.

This is the Gun!
The Avenger 30 mm Cannon. The airplane was built around the Gun. 
Grunts on the ground Love this Airplane.
The AF wanted to get rid of the A-10 as it was low tech. The AF has a thing for wizbang stuff. 
Grunts Love this Airplane!
It does it's job............Extremely Well!

Disturbed

Instead of a sign that says "Do Not Disturb" I need one that says "Already Disturbed Proceed With Caution until OBAMA is OUT of OFFICE."

As seen on Face Book.

NFL is a Reid Supporter. Slugs and Thugs.

NFL gives money to Harry Reid.

This is up at Michelle Malkin. Go. Read it.
For all you fans of the No Fun League.
I quit watching it back in the nineties. I haven't seen a game since December of 1997.
But as most of you know, I am a hockey fan.
But the scum at the NFL has decided to toss it's hat into the ring, for a low life, lying, corrupt politician.

Henry V Speech to the troops



Borrowed. Red Stick Rant had it up. Went to You Tube and did the share thing. Always liked this portrayal. And I like Sir Kenneth Branagh.

From William Teach. The picture is priceless and down right funny and thought provoking at the same time.




Here is the link to the Pirate's Cove posting.

Gratuitous Plane Pr0n

F/A-18F Super Hornet of Strike Fighter Squadron One Two Two, Naval Air Station Lemoore, CA.
The scheme is the same used on the new Navy Working Uniform. The sea service's version of the BDU/ACU or what ever they are calling it these days.
It is also the airframe that is commemorating the Centennial of US Naval Aviation. That will be May 8 of next year. Sorry Air Force, your roots are in the Army Signal Corps. And the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm is the second oldest after the Royal Air Force.

Flu. Sucks.

I feel horrible! Started on Thursday. Nagging low grade fever. Then chills. This morning went and got donuts for the Missus ORPO and me. Had two twists. Made a pot of coffee here at the Casa de Sharon y Glenn in Cal City. Had one cup.
Chills. Felt like I was in a cold locker. Then wringing wet. Sleep awhile, wake up, sleep a little, wake up wringing wet.
And so it goes.

Nuff Said

As the title says for this post.
Worthless Fuck, anyway.

Unions. Stupid is, as Stupid does

Union Schmucks fire guy with USS George H.W. Bush shirt and hat

Above link has all the details. They went ballistic because of the name, Bush. It is the name of CVN-77. His son is serving aboard this vessel. But the shitstains can't seem to handle it.

Challenge Coin

Got this from a kid who was doing his  Naval Air Reserve thing this past weekend at NAS Lemoore.
VFA-125 is the Legacy Hornet Fleet Replacement Squadron. Effective 1 October it was folded into VFA-122, the Super Hornet FRS.
125 had been in business for thirty years. Yeah, when I was still in my first A-6 squadron.
Jesse sort of owed me for a launch and recovery of the 416 CO on a Saturday that was for a funeral fly over. It was scheduled to be mine but he wanted to do it. He got a major atta boy for it. I told him a twelve pack of Fat Tire, Saint Pauli Girl or Pete's Wicked Ale.
This was way better.
And so the Rough Raiders pass into history. I went through the Flying Eagles twenty five years ago on my way to VA-147. 122 was referred to as Corsair College in those days. A-7E Corsair II.
For some of you.......................age give away!

THE PRESIDENT IS LOSING IT

It will give you pause for thought. Trust me on that one.

THE PRESIDENT IS LOSING IT

Go to this link. It is on Stormbringer. It will give insight into the workings of the current occupant of 1600. It is scary. But read, digest, ponder.

Priceless! A different view point

I swiped this from Melissa on Face Book. She got it from Elizabeth. Speaks volumes when it comes to character.

New Jet

This is my new jet. F-16AM, 80-3666. I was assigned to it last week. I got to launch it once! 
As soon as I get name tapes made, I will have them on and will get some pictures of it.

Pirate's Cove Has a good read

Pirate's Cove

Cap'n Teach has a good one for all to read. It hits home with the attitude of the man-child in chief and his enablers. We are not very smart. Think it is time to send those congress critters who have been in his pocket home...............to a rocking chair in the case of most of them. Where they can no longer cause major damage to our Republic.

Trains! City of New Orleans



Need I say more?

Ian Tyson & David Wilcox 4 Summer Wages. For me, Buck and all of us sort of old guys



A good part of my youth that was spent in the Princess Province included listening to Ian Tyson and his most, incredibly  beautiful wife, Sylvia.  And yes, I am still in love with her.

It's Been Awhile



This voice is something. I like this song, although it may have rather coarse language.............Old Dogs will understand

Eddie Vedder Rise



A song that is a new twist on those............
who go down to the sea............
in ships and know the works of the Lord.
First time I heard this was on Deadliest Catch. Jake was being sent ashore in Saint Paul in the Priboloff Islands to go home and bury his sister. It is short, sweet and sorrowful all at once.
And for my old shipmate, Chuck Franzen.

Che Guevarra is still Dead. 8 October 1967.
Got that you leftie idiots. He is still dead.

Many thanks to Paco. Go read him sometime.

New National Security Advisor

This link below is courtesy of Captain Teach at Pirate's Cove.

Nice Deb

She has the scoop as it were on Donilon, who is replacing General Jones as National Security Advisor to the I Won.
He has as decided anti Armed Forces viewpoint. Even SecDef Gates is worried about this pick.
Obama, turn left. Still broke? Turn Left some more. GeeZ what an asswipe.

Blogger acting strange?

Been in and out on occasion today. Any ideas out there? Do I move ORPO to Wordpress? But then I loose my followers and friends. Hmmm? What to do?

Deadliest Catch is coming back

This link has some of the information. No details have been released.
But with out Sig, Johnathon and Andy, the show just isn't.
The link will take you there.
Deadliest Catch is coming back!
There was some serious animosity but it seems to have been taken care of. And there is a spin off with the Hillestrand Brothers supposedly in the works.
Yeah! The Bad Boys of The Bering Sea are BACK!
And I came across a blog about the show and the Captains.

U.S. District Court Judge George Steeh ruled Thursday that the so-called individual mandate — a requirement President Barack Obama opposed during the presidential campaign but later embraced as part of sweeping changes — falls squarely within Congress’s ability under the Constitution to regulate interstate commerce.

A billy clintoon appointee now squarely in the pockets the communist trash that voted this fucking piece of totalitarianism into effect. Probably got a blow job from napolitano or even pelosi for it.
Maggot infested federal bench, anyway. His court is located in that wonderful haven of liberty, Jennifer "Slut" Granholm's Michigan. The one with Dearbornistan, the towel headed cyst of the Great Lakes.
A federal judge appointed by a man with absolutely no morals what so ever has by this destroyed individual liberty in the Republic. I say charges of Treason are in order.
And now the other slut, kathleen sibelius will be able to really make our lives a living hell. When is this shit going to end? 


Got this via Hot Air. I do not read or use the site politico. They are all worthless maggots and traitors anyway.


This shit will probably send my BP back up again! 

Where I bought my Truck

Didn't come with a second key. It is a used outfit. But the boy who was our sales person was supposed to find the other one. If not available he was to get us one from the Dealer. He was to do this. Didn't happen.
It is a Nissan dealership. Nissan truck.
Valley Hi Nissan in Victorville. Shitbirds. Liars. Scum.
Told me my registration fees and such were to license the truck to October of next year. Got the registration today. It expires on 31 March of next year. State law thing. I paid for April to September while it was either someone else's or on the lot. This I blame on the maggots and faggots in Sacramento. Period. The descriptive stands. It is California after all.
Valley Hi Nissan. Victorville, California. Do not go there. Do not give them any business. And if you live in the people's socialist, fairy loving, welfare, screw the real americans of Kalifornistan, make sure the legislature has an entirely new make up. And no moonbeam. No Meg. Vote for Chelene Nightingale.

And I do like my "new" truck. It does what I require of it.

Worker's Paradise.....Lost

Hawker Beechcraft and The Union

The above link will take you to an article in the Wichita Eagle. It has to do with an aircraft manufacturer possibly leaving town. One that has been there since the beginning.
Just two years ago, I went to work there. It was just after a strike by the IAM&AW employees.
Seems that unions and their members are now in the position of having to make concessions. Ones that would be very significant, like keeping the company they work for in town.
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
