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

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

WOW - Even more great stuff here than over at my place! These are great Glenn!!!

Looks like it can get a bit warm out there from time to time - glad you have the shade structures ;-) I really do love the candid shots of people doing their jobs and making it happen out there.

Please keep cool, stay in the shade when you can, stay safe, and keep up the GREAT work!

Makes ya appreciate those flight-line shelters, don't it? I'm surprised they never installed those at Cannon when the Lawn Darts were here.

Oh, yeah...desert rats and prairie cats, THAT'S what planet. 8D It's good for my old skin and it makes my hair curl, but other than that Idruthernot. If I had my druthers.

Great pics, thanks!

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
