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

Morning Ride: California City Municipal Airport Version

As most are aware, I have taken to riding my trusty old, somewhat beat up Walmart Special Mountain Bike three mornings a week for a bit of a distance, preferably over 6 miles. It is part of my exercise plan.............OK, it is the exercise plan. That being said, my Doc says it is a good one.....................
I do haul my Droid RAZR with me in case something happens and I might need assistance.............It also has a pretty fair camera in it. So without further ado, pix from Friday Morning's Ride.................

Out here in this little corner of The Mojave Desert, we have unique jets at our little airport. The Morning Ride has become a way of doing some exploring as well.

Glenn,
That picture brings back a lot
of memories.
I started my USAF career as a crew chief on a C-131E at Edwards AFB. 1974, Base Flight, in Hanger 1207.(Don't hold me to the hanger number. It's right behind the TPS.
And it has been 40 years!)The C-118's & C131's left. A sad day. The cough & smoke from an old radial is a unique sound. You're treading the same flightline as I did. From Hanger 1207 to 1414 to 1600. Days that will never return.Sorry for the long post. Memories....
