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 need a break

I caught a bit from our dearly not so esteemed Commander in Chief. It seems he was heard at a fund raiser or some other looney tunes get together.
It seems that it was this little tidbit.................................
"I could use a break and some Tuscan Sun or words to that effect." Hmmmmmm.
Wow! That is a good one. After how many vacations this past summer? I wonder what it would be like if he had to be back out in the real world. Trying to make a living in the dog eat dog world the rest of us are in?
And then the dog will have to travel on a separate aircraft.

Having given up that portion of my life, and knowing noting about the newer trendier trends...maybe "Tuscan Sun" is the new "Panama Red?"

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
