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

A Boo-Boo again, part two

Felt a pull/pinch sensation in the left groin today while hanging a boarding ladder on an airplane. Shortly afterward, it started to hurt. Did the chain of command notifications. Went to see the Flight Surgeon as per SOP. Got a hernia check. It was there! OUCH!
Left Direct Inguinal Hernia! Oh Boy! Fun! Yeah. Right. Got to see my primary provider tomorrow. One outcome for this, surgery. One of my favourite things, ya know!
25 pound lifting restriction. Gonna be doing a lot of forms and document reviews for a while.

LIGHT duty. Haven't experienced that in awhile, don't know how it would go if it became necessary. Kait's father-in-law had hernia surgery a few weeks ago & he didn't like the down time any better than I would, I think. Maybe that's when he found the original Scooby & Tom&Jerry cartoons On Demand he shared with Kaylee!

Take care, do what they say, don't be a pest to Sharon.

Believe it or not, I can still launch and recover. Just can't pick up a boarding ladder or squat under the airplane!
But I will become a forms specialist by the time this blows over. Document review tomorrow!

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
