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

"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

Saturday Overtime

Going to work in a while.......
This week is my actual duty weekend. We are in a four section duty. These are old airplanes and they have other than normal systems as they are test air frames.
It is $40.37 an hour.
Later we are going to a friend's for Corn Beef, Cabbage and Green Beer. OK, I will probably not turn my Widmer Pale Ale green..........Something not right about that. Possibly get me some Guinness though. Haven't had any for a while.
Guinness.........for Strength..................for Lex.
The weather here in The High Desert is fixing to go to pot. The system is coming in over the Sierra and Tehachapi Mountains later this morning. Snow levels are forecast to drop to around 3,000 feet. We are at around 2,375. It is possible should it cool enough, for us to get some snow.

AMEN to that. The rest of this all sounds good, other than the possible snow. We hates snow, we does.

St. Paddy's Day or not, turning beer green is anathema to the true lover of the fermented beverage.

Guiness....for strength.
