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

Dang. You're colder than we are, but only by four degrees. When ya get down that far a few degrees one way or the other don't make much difference.

Stay warm!

We don't see that cold here often. It did get into the teens last winter, froze the pipes once or twice. Not sure my arthritic hands would work if it stayed that cold for long...Summer is my demon, though, too hot AND humid here to breathe or spend any time outdoors at all. It's like Winter in Montana, when it's too cold to spend much time outside and it's tough to breathe...but at the other end of the spectrum. I hate it. Today it was 80 & a bit humid, some rain in the afternoon. My skin and hair like it, by hands not so much.

Love to Sharon!

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
