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

Desert Tortoise Days

Not what I expected. I should have gone to the parade.
The Desert Tortoise has a sanctuary to the north of town. Newly assigned and hired folks at Edwards have to go through training about the Tortoise. I kid you not!
It was like a small town carnival. And I mean Small! However two young men decided that a fight was in order. Right in front of the police at the entrance to the festivities. Tasers are kind of neat to see in action. The young punk hit the ground like the proverbial ton of bricks!
The Missus and I did get some cute little wood work name things of the grand daughters and a funnel cake. Gotta have a funnel cake!
We have a large number of "disadvantaged minorities" here in Cal City. They were moved out of the LA area to help fill emtpy apartments,  duplexes and such due to the violence in the LA area. Some folks have told me that there are meth labs and such here. I can't confirm that. I do know that people without jobs drive much nicer outfits than I do.

Just finished watching your Habs even up the series. God, but I SO want to see Pittsburgh lose.

I am glad they managed to rebound after the disaster on Friday! Halak was on, again. And they will need him to be almost flawless to keep going.

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
