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

Missus ORPO and I took in this game. The Condors are not having a good year but the fan base in Bakersfield is amazing.

The music... especially "Kern River"... kinda hit me where I live, unexpectedly. My father retired to Lake Isabella where he had a place in the mountains. I drove up the Kern River canyon a LOT when goin' to visit him in the last years of his life; Bakersfield was the "big city" to him during his last good days.

So... I sorta know the area.

We like our occasional trip over the mountain to Bakersfield. The Missus also has a specialist there.
It is the Redneck Capital of California. There are loads of Texas Longhorn Decals and OU Decals on pick ups all over the place...............blending in with Oakland Raider and San Francisco 49er stuff.................

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
