"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
"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." ―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker
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
""SOME SEE A GLASS AS HALF FULL, SOME SEE IT AS HALF EMPTY, I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHO’S DRINKING MY RUM."

Another one of "those anniversaries"
Oh Shit, I'm getting old moment............. 40 years ago today, I finished my first deployment to the Med on Independence with the ship's arrival at Pier 7, Naval Station Norfolk on a very cold, rainy and windy day.
