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."

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

Two Years Today: Updated

Two years since the kidney was removed. Doing good. Waiting for my referral for a CT scan of the lower torso/abdomen as will be the norm from the first anniversary of the surgery until I finally leave this world. Got to keep tabs on things, ya know.
There has been some changes with this. My blood pressure is higher than it used to be. Found that out with the hernia last year! But I had a check up on the 13th and things are looking really good.
For all my friends who were  with me in spirit then, again, I thank all of you.
Special thanks to Jeff, Buck, Cindy, Kath and Pinch from the blogosphere!
Sometimes the realization that it was cancer does hit me a bit. But the process was so sudden ya know!
