....Florida, where Ol' Larry spent some time,
right up there in that picture, near the flight line,
those little bity dots near the bottom of the hexagon, not dome,
are cars in the parking lot, waiting to go home.

It was pretty easy duty that Ol' Larry had,
Jax in the summer, Iceland winters aren't that bad,
sometimes that reversed, went to the beach for a swim,
it was good while it lasted, but I know now, what I didn't then.
Top:  The hangar at the Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, it's the hex building.
Middle:  Planes fly in formation over Jax in this 1948 photo, no! I didn't take it.
Bottom:  The City of Jacksonville at night, reflected in the St. Johns River.
