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

New Horizon Air Paint on Q400s

In the colors of Montana State Fighting Bobcats

U of Montana Grizzlies
Two new collegiate based schemes now in service with Horizon Air. They also have UW, WSU, Oregon, Oregon State, Boise State and Idaho in the fleet. Horizon will eventually be the largest single operator of the Bombardier Dash 8 Q 400 series in North America. The CRJ 700s are going to other carriers. Horizon functions as a feeder for it's parent, Alaska Airlines.  Some of these operate on routes as long as Seattle Tacoma to Billings and Eugene to Los Angeles.
And as a native of Montana I think these are really good looking airplanes.

Is there an RSS feed for new posts on this design? My eyes won't let me try to read white on black anymore, gives the poor things an ache you wouldn't believe. But it's ok if I can get posts as email instead! So lemme know here, OR send me an email telling me where it is? 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
