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
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

Official Resident of California!?!?!?!?

The Drivers License arrived in the mail, yesterday. Yikes!
It is no longer eyes: brown, hair: brown. The hair is officially gray. The AF security folks even called it gray when I got here.
At least in my Retired ID photo everything is gray. But the new DL shows it quite well.The floor is now open to cheap shots and such!
The reality of getting up there on the calendar, I guess.
BTW I am doing this as I get ready for work. It is my weekend duty and we have more things to do today. Nice OT coming in the next check with all the taxes on it. Those courtesy the likes of Arnold, Moonbeam Brown, Queen Nancy "the louse" Pelousy, Dirty Harry Reid, Little Bonnie Fwank and company.
And you thought I wasn't going to hammer somebody?

When I was stationed at Fort Irwin, my new girl friend was sure that I had to get a California license. I went down to the examiner station and tried. I was a 2nd Lieutenant but not quite 21. They told me I would have to get a letter of permission from my parents. Bull Shit GI. Never Happened. At least I didn't give them my Kansas license first like they wanted. MUD

I have to get a new ID card in March when Medicare kicks in and I'm no longer authorized mil health care. But I SHALL remain blond. It's just a way-lighter shade now.

Heh. Now that I'm gettin' those white streaks in my hair, I don't know what color to say. Roan?

It is kind of hard to lighten brown. Other than streaks. And it all started back in the eighties when me and the first missus did the big "D" thing. Ugly, nasty and stressful. Just as my sister, kc.

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
