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

Blood Pressure SitRep @ 110/69 and a Good Day

I have been on a diuretic for my BP since I had my hernia almost three years ago. Last Thursday, I saw my Doc with readings for a six week period. I got another medication for it. Lisinopril it is called. I started taking it on Saturday. Today I was at 110/69.
I have also been getting regular exercise in the form of my Walmart Special Mountain Bike. I had to replace an inner tube on the back tire and hit the sprockets and chain with WD-40 but it works. I ride at least three days a week for up to 8 miles at a time. Low impact Aerobic type stuff. No more running for me.............
Still cleaning out from the quitting smoking in 2009 when the kidney was removed. .

Additionally I saw a news article on the Army website that said SecDef Hagel has shortened the furlough for us DoD civilian employees. I need only five more furlough hours to meet the new total. It has been cut to six days from eleven but we are on an alternate pay period so I have been losing 17 hours per two week pay period.

Good Day, I do believe.

Good day, indeed.

Lisinopril is the generic for Zestril.
I've been on it for what seems like forever.
It works just fine.
Another generic form is Prinivil.
I took that, too.

Good job on that BP.
Mine's been running about 120/70.
