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

Being absent lately

I have had a bit of a rough week. Even after almost three months on the graveyard, I am still adjusting. I sometimes had all I could do to finish a beer after arriving home and getting my lunch box taken care of.
The nasty head and upper respiratory cold had me on the ropes for awhile along with the issues with my feet and lower legs, I haven't had a lot of get up and go. It seems like it got up and hopped a fast westbound freight train.....
I called out sick last night after spending my Thursday after work hacking like crazy. It was enough to make my brain feel like it was in a can on a paint mixer..........................................Not a lot of fun, I assure you.
I guess it was easier to play on Facebook and Google Plus.....................

I am watching an episode of Impossible Engineering about the development, manufacturing and capabilities of the Airbus A380.

The LA County Airshow is coming up in March at General William Fox Field in Lancaster. I think the Nikon and I are going to attend. I may even scrounge up a used wheel chair so I don't abuse my feet. I still have the limitations in place for not a lot of walking. The organizers have already confirmed the Blue Angels for the upcoming show. Due to the large attendance, I will probably head home when the Blues walk to their jets. The 14 Freeway will be a nightmare after the show ends each day. I will give a Hat Tip to the LA County Sheriff's Department and the CHP for their excellent management of the traffic.

I guess that is about all. I just wanted all to know I am still around..........................
There will be some Craft/Micro Brew posts coming this weekend as I have a few new flavors to sample here at Casa de Sharon y Glenn.

It seems strange to attend an airshow and not stay for the Blues.
But I totally understand the traffic situation.
Up here it is compounded because there are only two lane roads accessing the airport.

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
