He's a poet he's a picker he's a prophet he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home

Livin' on the road, my friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean
And now you wear your skin like iron
And your breath as hard as kerosene

Weren't you mama's only boy
But her favorite one, it seems
She began to cry when you said, "Goodbye"
Sank into your dreams




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

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
