Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS 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."

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

There was a family event

On this past Wednesday, the 18th, something finally happened.
My wife is one of four sisters. All of them were together with spouses/significant others for the first time, ever.
Considering we have all been together/married for thirty plus years...................
Not kids anymore, OK. All of us are well over fifty and Debbie's fella, Ralph is closing in on seventy.
We had our eldest grand daughter and Terry and Warren had their grandson Carson.
Good company and good food along with Hector on guitar.
So without further ado..............

Great pics. I miss the family reunions TSMP used to drage me to, now that I don't have those associations any longer. Family is a GREAT thing in life... it's most of what we have.

Appreciate it, guys!

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
