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

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

About the new header pic

The Missus and I went to Naval Air Station Lemoore for the Retiree Appreciation Day this past weekend. We went over on Friday, checked into the Navy Lodge(very nice indeed) and went for dinner and then a visit with an old squadron mate from the mid 1980s.
Saturday was the event but The Missus liked the mattress so much...........she said have fun. We went to town for dinner again and a little look see.............
Sunday we took it easy and then went to Visalia for a little while and then we hit the Me-n-Ed's Pizza in Lemoore. We went there for our second anniversary with the kids shortly after we arrived at NAS Lemoore that June of 1985.
Monday before we left, I had to get a picture like the above......................
Followed by getting a new Navy Region SW vehicle sticker on The Missus' car. Then we went to the Monday Flea Market in Hanford before heading back over the Mountains to home..................
Good weekend all in all.

The Navy still uses vehicle stickers? USAF did away with those about three or four years ago, since there's almost always a 100% ID check at the gate. Saved a ton o' money, too... from what I hear.

Yep. They have streamlined it though. Instead of a station sticker, it is for the respective Navy Region.

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
