Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"
BUCK PENNINGTON

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

Going to Hill AFB, Utah and other sundry things

I will be going to F-16 Advanced Crew Chief School at Hill AFB from the 31st of October to the 18th of November. I fly out of LAX tomorrow at 1:30 to SLC.
I am getting a rental car on arrival........that I don't have to pay for.
The school may help in me getting moved into a grade 12 slot..........kind of difficult with a hiring freeze now days though.
But I can use it to pad the resume for further things.........
I just realized that I have been at this for two years as of the 21st of this month. Wow! Who woulda thunnk it?
The counter keeps going up as well..........

I think you'll like Hill. SN1 was stationed there for a couple o' years and I had a great good time when I went and visited. Make sure you visit Roosters in Layton... good food and better beer!

Six. I will do just that! Grizzlies at home to the Colorado Eagles on Remembrance Day Weekend. "AA" Hockey.

It is a bit more scenic than Eddie's Airplane Patch by a bit, Buck.The last time I was at SLC International was changing planes on the 29th of September, 1973. I was on my way to RTC San Diego. Nice VQ. Got Avs and Kings on Altitude and Deschutes Black Butte Porter!!!!!!!!

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
