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

I am tired

It has been a rather hectic start to our adventure at Nellis.
Things have not gone our way, ya might say.
It was lights out before 2200 last night..........................just woke up a while ago.
Breakfast is at 0600 and off to the flight line at about 0700. Back at it again.
Waiting for the weekend.......but that could turn out a bit different than one would expect.
Yeah.

Hang in there, Glenn. I hope Vegas is warm.

At our age, tired is the normal state. But we fight through it as we always have. We do our best work when things are the most difficult. Hang in there.

Today was good. The jet went flying, dropped the bombs and came back in good shape. Did the turnaround and serviced a nose strut and it is going again later this evening.
Today is a good kind of tired.

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
