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

Update, again

Got the Missus out of Bakersfield Memorial after the angiogram. Small amount of arterial plaque. No stent required. Good thing.
My event for tomorrow is cancelled here and will be in another location on next Monday. The place here in Bakersfield has business practices that are suspect when using Tricare Standard-Retired such as I have. They wanted 223 bucks up front which according to Tricare is illegal.
But The Missus will get a chance to rest. The nurses didn't want her sitting in a car for the trip back over the mountain right away.

Glad the missus is OK!

I think Tri-Care Prime was/is worth the money. I say "was" coz I'm now in Tri-Care for Life but SN3 is still in Tri-Care Prime. Prime is even better if you have access to military facilities, like at Edwards.

We have Prime. Twelve bucks a visit to the primary. Didn't have to pay anything to the roto rooter guy and don't have to pay for the twice-yearly blood work. NAS is VERY close, but we can't see the docs there unless we're dedicated to that for weeks at a time to get one when he comes available. It is, however, where we use the pharmacy and the ER the one time it was needed. Easy Peasy.

We're still newbies to Tricare. I may need a primer.

Glad Mrs. ORPO is doing well!
