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

Yoda

"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

Beer Blogging from Sandy Eggo

Missus ORPO and I journeyed to Sandy Eggo for a small gathering of some Lexicans at Shakespeare's tomorrow evening.
This evening after fighting the football game traffic on the 15, the 163 and the 8, we checked into our room at Motel 6 Hotel Circle North and then took off to Anthony's Fish Grotto for dinner. I had the good fortune to eat at this establishment when I graduated from Boot Camp at RTC Sandy Eggo in December of 1973 at the tender age of 19...........Go ahead and do the math..............
After we finished up, we headed to a convenience store to pick up the Missus some smokes and I picked up a six pack of Stone Pale Ale.......I didn't realize that they made a Pale Ale!
Quite tasty indeed......................................
I will have the Trusty Nikon D3000 with me tomorrow and pictures will be uploaded upon our return home to Cal City.

Looking forward to the pics. Tell the gang I said, "Cheers" and please toast "Absent friends" for me ;)

When I left RTC, some 11 1/2 years before you, I couldn't get out of town soon enough.
I have since found I don't hold a grudge against the town.

What hogdayafternoon said, as in "Give my best to the assembled company." I'll be with you in spirit.

Me and Dwight really wish you could have made it Buck!

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
