National Maritime Day

“[Mariners] have written one of its most brilliant chapters.
They have delivered the goods when and where needed in every theater
of operations and across every ocean in the biggest, the most difficult and
dangerous job ever undertaken. As time goes on, there will be greater public
understanding of our merchant's fleet record during this war [World War II].”


- President Franklin D. Roosevelt
(30 Jan 1882 - 12 Apr 1945)

From My Friend, Dan, of TX - 05/21/15:

“By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but ‘gave no heed unto them’, we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations ‘such as [are] common to man’. Of course, Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to Him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, he rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us.”

- Neal A. Maxwell

Son of a Son of a Sailor

Words and Music by Jimmy Buffett, 1978
(b. 25 Dec 1946)


“I saw a picture of my grandfather after he had come back from a trip to Nova Scotia. He was born there but left when he was a young man
and didn’t return until he was 84. He was standing on dock staring at an old sailing schooner, and the look on his face told the story of where he
had come from and where he had been. I have always been very proud of my heritage as a sailor and wrote this for the men who taught me the skills.”


As the son of a son of a sailor
I went out on the sea for adventure
Expanding the view of the captain and crew
Like a man just released from indenture

As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin’ man
I have chalked up many a mile
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks
And I’ve learned much from both of their styles

Son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor
Son of a gun load the last ton
One step ahead of the jailer

Now away in the near future, southeast of disorder
You can shake the hand of the mango man
As he greets you at the border

And the lady she hails from Trinidad
Island of the spices
Salt for your meat and cinnamon sweet
And the rum is for all your good vices

Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind that our
Forefathers harnessed before us
Hear the bells ring as the tide rigging sings
It’s a son of a gun of a chorus

Where it all ends I can’t fathom, my friends
If I knew, I might toss out my anchor
So I’ll cruise along always searchin’ for songs
Not a lawyer, a thief or a banker

But a son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor
Son of a gun, load the last ton
One step ahead of the jailer
I’m just a son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor
The sea’s in my veins, my tradition remains
I’m just glad I don’t live in a trailer
