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

We went to Tustin, Anaheim and Barstow!

The Missus had an appointment in Tustin to adjust the lap band yesterday. As always we make a day of it. The feed store in Acton on the 14 in the mountains has the sunflower seed mix for the ruff neck parrot and the seed mix for the finches. We stop on the way down.
Traffic wasn't too bad going through the SF Valley and then near East LA to Tustin. Did the adjust and we stopped at a shopping plaza near Angels Stadium and Honda Center. Think the Ducks are on the program for next year as the rink is easy to get to.
Then we headed to the outlet mall at Barstow. Got some new steel toe hikers at the Skecher's store for a pretty good price and some nifty flip flops as well. The Missus picked up a new pair of walking-running shoes and some really spiffy flip flops for herself. Buy one get the second for half off the price. Did OK.
The WX down below was not near as warm as here in the desert. In fact for a bit, it was ugly!

I haven't been in that part o' the world for quite some time now but The Ol' Man lived in Tustin for a while, back in the mid-60s. I suspect it's changed a bit since then. ;-)

Part of the Orange County Sprawl. At leas it isn't LA!
MCAS El Toro is closed as well as MCAS(H) Tustin. I do know how to get to Honda Center and Angels Stadium! Much easier than Staples Center in LA.

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
