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

All y'all are lookin' GOOD! (Even though the squidly sweatshirt is a big-ass disconnect in an Air Force photo. I'm pretty sure there's some sorta AFI about that.)

And thanks for my own personal copy, as well!

I have license as they say. The age is on my side. I am the oldest Crew Chief in the AMU!
Glad you liked the picture, buddy!

Heh. Retirement can't be all that far off then, Glenn. I was the oldest guy in my entire COMPANY at my last job, which was with an IT start-up in SFO... populated mostly by 20-sumthin' and 30-sumthin' whiz kid coders and the like. Senior management would trot me out every once in a while to show prospects and clients we DID have at least one "old gray head" on board. I was "honored." Yeah, right.

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
