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

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

Kings win the Stanley Cup with a 6-1 victory in Game 6

Big Doings down below in El-Eh tonight.
The Stanley Cup is going to call Staples Center in Los Angeles Home for at least one year.
The Kings won in a very convincing display of offensive hockey tonight. Jonathan Quick was outstanding in goal and won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Playoff MVP. He went 16-4 in net.

And a bit of news as well. Martin Brodeur is not retiring. The Devils goaltender is a real class act and one of the best representatives of the game, our game.

I watched it, of course. There's NOTHING in all of sports that equals the awarding of The Cup... nothing. But ya know that, so I shall not go on. ;-)

SN1 was packing during the game but took time out to watch most of the third, and the ensuing festivities. Quite the night... in a lot of different respects.

The Kings did a magnificent job this year. Seeing Jonathan Quick get the Conn Smythe was really special as well.
I go with The Kings because they are basically the home team for us in this part of the world.

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
