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

A day off

Today is a federal holiday. Yours truly gets a days pay today........yep.
That being said, tomorrow I have to start the prep for my little trip to Las Vegas. Going to Red Flag. 
I get to play war...................or more correctly.................practice for war with the guys who will go and have been there, recently.
I am going to be "shown off" I think. I will always be on a flyer with my buddy on the other one. Our young "hot shot" Work Leader will have the spare. My boss is going to be plugging me to the rest of the units there. I will more than likely be the oldest crew chief at this event and at 57, that is a good bet.
So, with some luck, I may get some shots for later posting. Seems the kids at Nellis are a bit sensitive about things.
Last night, My Beloved Canadiens did win over the Rangers 4 to 1.
The local boys split up north of the 49th. The Kings lost in Edmonton 2-1 in overtime and the Ducks did a good job on Vancouver 4-2.

The only thing that surprised me out of all the stuff in this post is the Miserable Ducks beating Vancouver IN Vancouver. Habs beating the Rangers was a close second.

Have fun at Nellis! I hear there's a lot o' stuff to do in the local area. ;-)

I did enjoy watching the water fowl win, though! Not a big fan of Luongo and the Sedins

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
