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

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

I get bored sometimes, OK?

I figured that I would succumb to vanity and put up a shot of "My Jet" on the header. There she is, F-16C, 83-1120. I still have to get my name on the canopy rail. I was waiting for a few things to occur. Like the paperwork and such for the clearance the Air Force requires of one to simply turn wrenches. When I get my name on it, I will get some pics of me in the cockpit or on a stand next to it. Hopefully this week or next.

And I went for a different look overall.

I miss the Lawn Darts. We used to have three squadrons of 'em out at Cannon (27th Fighter Wing) and they were MUCH more pleasin' to both eye and ear than the droning, lumbering AC-130s. But Hey! At least Cannon still exists. That's a Good Thing.

Can't wit to see pics of YOUR jet.

Saw them at Cannon on occasion when I was working the ballast trains. Clovis being a major point on the Big New Santa Fe.

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
