You don't know me
You don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
How many of you would sit and judge me
Ever walked the Streets of Bakersfield...............
From the Kern County Desert....
Observations....
Commentary....
Small essays and other things that come to mind or suit me at the time.
All are welcome here, to my world, such that it is.
A walking contradiction, partly truth, partly fiction,
taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home......

Serenity

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
"Sign on, young man, and sail with me. The stature of our homeland is no more than the measure of ourselves. Our job is to keep her free. Our will is to keep the torch of freedom burning for all. To this solemn purpose we call on the young, the brave, the strong, and the free. Heed my call, Come to the sea. Come Sail with me." -- John Paul Jones

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
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

It is Friday

Been a bit of a different week for me.
For the entire week, I did not launch and recover a jet. Yesterday was my Regular Day Off and I used it to recover a bit from Wednesday Evening. Beck's and play off hockey.
The Los Angeles Kings who are the 8 seed in the West pulled off a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks in Vancouver. Game 2 is later. Going to be watching it for sure.
The Weather today here in The High Desert was rain, wind, rain and more rain. It was snowing in the Tehachapi Mountains and parts of The High Sierras. Middle of April in Central and So Cal and we get winter weather!
I bid you all good evening and a pleasant weekend where ever you may be.
Closing out with some Rhythms from our Good Captain..................

Keep Calm
Chive On

The Kings won again last night and I couldn't be happier. Well, I could be happier if the Wings were up 2-0 on Nashville, but they're not. A split on the road is good enough, I guess.

The Wings-Preds series may be a classic. At least it is shaping up to be so.
I think the Canucks went in a bit cocky and LA is playing great hockey. They even managed to kill off the stupid penalties they still have a tendency to take.
The score keepers took Dustin Brown's Hat Trick away!!!!!!

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
