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

Anniversary at Pismo Beach

I finally have time to load pictures of our day at Pismo Beach. We like the Central Coast. It is more scenic and less crowded than the So Cal Beaches. No Metropolitan areas to deal with.
Good eating establishments are there as well. Motel 6 was a fairly good deal for being out there on the coast.
Good place to go, in our humble opinion.

Pismo is just up the road a bit from Vandenberg AFB and I spent MANY a happy hour there, back in the day. I suppose it's changed a lot over the last 40+ years or so but it remains a place that's high in my memory.

I can't think of a better place to celebrate your anniversary.

If we go for a long weekend we stay at the Vandenberg Inn. $56.00 a night is better than the motels in the area.
We love the Central Coast!

I'd never done more than drive past the Central Coast until seven years ago.
The closest I had been were overnighters in San Luis Obispo.
Things like that happen when you live too close.
Today, particularly living in the valley, I have a much greater appreciation for the delights of the Central Coast and of the North Coast.

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
