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."
―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
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Psalm 107:

23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

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
