This is who I wanted to be when I was in high school

For some reason Ricky Nelson popped into my head today. When I was in high school in the early 1960s more than anything else I wanted to be like Ricky Nelson. All the girls I knew loved his "dreamy" eyes and I just knew if I could just be like him, I might have a chance to get a date. Of course, he died way too young in 1985 in a plane crash. One of my favorite songs of all time is "Garden Party" because it so perfectly expresses what I believe that "you've got to please yourself." Which means to me you do what is right no matter what others think about you or expect.

The embedded song is probably half the reason I ended up joining the Navy. You can figure it out.

Hmmmm, could it have something to do with "one in every port"?

Oh, you know me so well. It didn't work out that way, but that was the plan. Bro
