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

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

Gratuitous Plane Pr0n

F/A-18F Super Hornet of Strike Fighter Squadron One Two Two, Naval Air Station Lemoore, CA.
The scheme is the same used on the new Navy Working Uniform. The sea service's version of the BDU/ACU or what ever they are calling it these days.
It is also the airframe that is commemorating the Centennial of US Naval Aviation. That will be May 8 of next year. Sorry Air Force, your roots are in the Army Signal Corps. And the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm is the second oldest after the Royal Air Force.

No need to apologize on our behalf. We're proud of our heritage, no matter HOW pedestrian it might be. ;-)

That "camo" pattern isn't really ugly, I've seen it, too. Often. It's just stupid. Pixels? Really? What exactly are you camouflaging (hiding) FROM? This ain't TekWar, fercryinoutloud. Where you gonna hide, in the server? Jeez...

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
