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

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

First Day of Spring

Took some pics today of The Tehachapis covered in snow. This fell during the night. I don't know if the pass on 58 was closed. The Grapevine on I-5 was closed for a while last night. All we got yesterday and last night was rain, a lot of rain.
Ahh Spring!

From the RR crossing on Cal City Blvd going toward Hwy 14

From the parking lot of the Veterans Home in NW Lancaster

Another from the parking lot in Lancaster

From Hwy 14 just North of Mojave

Another from 14

Same spot but look at the snowfall!

Got these today. I had to go to Lancaster to the VA Community Outreach Clinic. With the weather we had yesterday, the camera had to go. First Day of Spring in The High Desert!

"Spring" is relative, ain't it? ;-)
