Does Jazzing Up An Old Classic Work?

Some info on O'2L HERE

scoll down to the "recent work section"

Cosplay... For The Win...

Sometime You Pause....

Earlier today I had scheduled to meet the truck driver who works for our plating subcontractor.
I have an order of parts to be tin plated and they do the best job at a fair price.

 The plater does work with a company that is located at Pease International Tradeport in Newington NH.  So we decided to meet there.

It used to be Pease Air Force Base before the base closures back in the late 80's early 90's. The base is still home to the New Hampshire Air National Guard and you can watch military transports land and take off right over Route 95

Anyway, I met him in a parking lot and loaded my parts into the back of the box truck. While we were signing off on paper work he said. "Have you ever seen the memorial?" 

I said "No, Which one?"

"The one over there, in front of the National Guard Building" pointing across the street to an area on the diagonal corner to the intersection we were near. " You should go see it, I brought my wife down here just to see it"

 " Really?" I asked

He replied "Ayuh ( he's from Maine), she walked away in tears"

"I'll go now" I said as I shook his hand.

I locked my truck and walked over to the monument that was under a POW MIA flag.

The wreath in front was knocked over so I picked it up and pushed the legs down into the crushed stone as much as I could.

Here is the monument and below a close up of the prayer.  Watch the dust.

At That Moment, All Was Well...

Buy A Multi Million Dollar Car... Can't Get Out Of Driveway.....

Come on...Come on... Come on.....

Ordinary Man....

Look in the mirror tell me what do you see
Or can you lie to yourself like you're lyin' to me
Do you fall asleep real easy feelin' justified and right
Or do you wake up feelin' empty in the middle of the night
You want to think you're different, but you know you never can
You're just another ordinary man

Hey politician, can't believe a word you say
Almighty media, whose truth d'you sell today?
Watchdog of justice, who keeps their eye on you?
Con man, song in hand, who you singin' to?
The more I get to see, the less I understand
I'm just another ordinary man

Ordinary man
Comes a time to take a stand

No rest for the wicked - they get it while they can
The preachers and the teachers and your local Congressman
Everybody plays the game they played since time began
Lawyers and accountant - your media man

Everybody's talkin' but nothin's gettin' said
You're looking for the truth you better look inside your head
I see the flash of lightnin'
I hear the thunder roll
A hungry knive, a slice of life
It cuts another soul

Power finds a way to those who take a stand
Stand up ordinary man

Once I thought the truth was gonna set me free
But now I feel the chains of its responsibility
I will not be a puppet I cannot play it safe
I'll give myself away with a blind and simple faith
I'm just the same as you I just do the best I can
That's the only answer...for an ordinary man

Ordinary man
Comes a time to take a stand

No such thing as easy answers
You play to win and you take your chances

Ordinary man
Comes a time to take a stand

Here's to health, here's to wealth
May you never doubt yourself

Ordinary man
Comes a time to take a stand
