WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A DRUNKEN SAILOR?
Good Sunday morning everyone and greetings from the old kazoo maker. What a beautiful morning here on the homestead. This morning when I was pickin' guitar on the porch I had the guitar plugged in recording for almost an hour of just adlib stuff off the top of my head. This is an old traditional sea shanty that I love to play just for the fun of it!
When I reviewed the recording to select a tune for today's video I remembered something that my dad told me the day I left home for the Navy when I was 18. "You're gonna find out that Uncle Sam makes a pretty good uncle but he's one hell of a dad!"
So since the Navy became my adopted dad for over two decades it only appropriate that I selected today's today's Pickin' on the Porch Video.
By the way, I sailed on the aircraft carrier USS NIMITZ shown in the picture you will see in this video. I am a "Plank Owner" of this lady and made her first deployment to the North Atlantic and Mediterranean. I also rode a couple of those smaller ships you see pictured at other times in my sailor days.
So to all you Dad's out there Happy Father's Day!
