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

Yoda

"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."
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker

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

Playing with the Blog...............again

..........and other tidbits from a shortened three day weekend.......
Saturday got ten hours of OT........$407.30 for the day. Not bad.
Sunday did some maintaining on The Missus' PT Cruiser. Got the wiring redone from the radiator fan to the switch I had to install a couple of years ago. Then did a lift support remove and replace on the rear door. Needs a few other little things to do yet but for her running around here and to the Commissary it is all up and up.
Today, did an oil change on the Titan. $44 and change. For a 7.5 Quart capacity not bad this day and age.
Finally got a new male Zebra Finch for the one we lost while we were in Vegas, yesterday.
Playing with the blog. I figured it needed some pizzaz. So, what the heck.
Did see the Ducks pull off another one yesterday evening.
We are headed down to the big towns to get wipers for both outfits, air filters and other sundry items not available out here in the desert scrub or at our friendly AAFES Base Exchange.
I do have a boring life at times, don't I? But it is all good.....................
