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

"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

The Road

At the Motel 6 in Santa Rosa

Out of Santa Rosa going toward Clines Corner, Moriarty and ABQ

The snow begins!
Starting to get interesting!

And it gets heavier

There was an accident ahead


The Red Rocks East of Gallup
This evening in Gallup
It was an interesting day to say the least. It is about 260 miles. It took us close to six and one half hours. It began between Santa Rosa and Moriarty. Then the pass over into Albuquerque. Good going till around Acoma and Sky City. Then it got really nasty!

It was a long day for a six and a half hour drive! That stretch out of Moriarty had visibility down to about 50 yards for a while!
The big hill going to ABQ was just slow. Then it got ugly out by Acoma Pueblo into Gallup.
But we did get home last night.
