Conan On What Is Best In Life

Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?

Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.

Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?

Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

Mongol General: That is good! That is good.

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
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line


Psalm 107:

23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

Absent

Busy end of week at work last week.
The Missus and I went to Las Vegas on Saturday to see Paul Revere and The Raiders at South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa. It was her birthday present.
Pics will be uploaded at a later date, ie, when I get the SD card out of the camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW, it is bloody cold here in the Kern County Desert!

It's pretty bloody cold all over California... relatively speaking.

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
