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."

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

An evening at the Ball Park

Yesterday evening, I took my granddaughter to a baseball game in Adelanto, just north of Victorville. We saw the High Desert Mavericks host the Bakersfield Blaze at Stater Bros. Stadium. It is Class A ball in the California League. Nice little ball park.
Bailee had a great time and got a baseball and had it autographed by the mascot, Wooly Bully and the Rally Wizard. She did the outfield run and ran the bases after the game. The weather was great and the sun was to our backs behind the structure.

Ah... summer, baseball, and grandkids. It don't get much, if any, better than that!

When her Mom and little sister get here we are going to Lancaster to watch the Jethawks play.
Used to take Bailee's Mom and Uncles to the Visalia Oaks when we were at NAS Lemoore in the 80's. The California League is part of the Family almost. We love it.

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
