Mother, Mother Ocean
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
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, to Luke Skywalker
Counted the Stars
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

Second, I had an appointment at the Sepulveda VA ACC with an orthopedic surgeon for my left knee which has been hurting like hell at times. Bursitis. I got a shot. That hurt most of the night. It feels OK today.
If it ain't one thing, it's another ya know.

Sorry for the absence dear readers. September has been a rather strange month. I wound up dealing with some potassium and water pill issues.
I spent the night of 8-9 September in the ER at Palmdale Regional Medical Center after the Lancaster VA Clinic said my potassium was critical.
I think my outside doctor might have it figured out. I am now off the water pills and the potassium supplement.

I had to spend Thursday night and Friday morning in the ER at Palmdale Regional Medical Center due to the results of blood work at the Lancaster VA. I got the notice via voice mail late in the afternoon Thursday. The nurse said my potassium was at 2.7. The preferred range is 3.6 to 5.6.
It was a definite strain.
Buck was right.
Gettin' old ain't for sissies.
