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

"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

IT'S SO HOT

From my friend Patsy Badger
This one is funny!
..... birds are using potholders to pull up worms
..... trees are whistling for the dogs
..... the best parking places are determined by shade instead of distance
..... hot water runs from both taps.
..... sun tea is made in seconds
..... you learn a seat belt buckle is a pretty good branding iron
..... when the temperature drops below 90°, you feel a little chilly
..... you discover that it only takes two fingers to steer your car in June
..... you find out you can get sunburned through a car window
..... you burn your hand opening the car door
..... you break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 A.M.
..... your biggest fear in a motorcycle wreck is, "What if I’m unconscious, end up lying on the pavement, and cook to death?"
..... you learn asphalt has a liquid stage.
..... potatoes cook in the ground – just pull one up and add butter for a meal
..... the cows give evaporated milk
..... farmers are feeding chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard boiled eggs.

Oh SO true, that one. I was sitting on the verandah a couple nights ago and it was mebbe 75 outdoors. I ALMOST got up and went inside to get a flannel shirt. Srsly.

When are ya gonna kill that annoying word verification thang, Glenn? Sometimes it takes me three tries to post a comment due to the illegibility of the word pictures. It's a right-royal PITA.

So it was pretty much from one end of the state to the other?
Here it was 103 on Saturday, 105 Sunday and cooled to 102 yesterday
Fortunately there is some shade under which to park

I'll second the motion on word verification
