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

The Great Salt Lake-Antelope Island and down to Salt Lake City

After a rather impressive meal at Applebee's in Layton, the Veteran's Day one for free ya know, I went and played tourist.
The camera was with me. Can't help it but I take my little Kodak Z612 with me a lot.
So for your viewing enjoyment........................











Across that causeway is Syracuse, Clearfield, Layton, Ogden and Hill AFB. A lot of  haze on this day.

Through that haze is Salt Lake City. It's there. Really.

SLC is a beautiful place. I might could live there, if it wasn't for the winters, which are World-Class.

I live there. It's not the winters, it's the haze. The valley is a perfect bowl... mountains on every side and it takes a serious amount of wind and rain to clear the air sometimes.

Nice pictures Glenn.

Nice photos. Spent a couple years out at Dugway Proving Ground as well as TDY at Hill AFB. (SLC was
considerably smaller back in that
day)

Was thinking of looking for an internal transfer to the area.

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
