another picture of mr c that was left off my blog yesterday
the frogs and the fishes were in the bowl
mr c and the fox and the hound named s when checking
them out
i guess scared those little froggies as they jumped out and
swam away
we managed to save the 6 little fishes
for use in my water trough ponds for mosquito control

unlike many of you who either stayed up or set your alarms
to see the blood moon
i thanks to aricept (donepezil) interference with my sleep
i was up and out the door this morning to see the
pre eclipse moon
the eclipsed blood moon
the post eclipse moon

here is the documentation from my iphone
that i was there at the peak time
although im sad to say my grainy fussy pictures did not
do justice to how
beautiful it was

if you miss them those blood eclipses this year
you can see them again in 18 years
when your newborn is able to vote
when those of you who just started mediare will be 84
when the new 50 year olds will be on medicare and
social security they hope

it was refreshing to stop take a deep breath
gaze up at the clear crisp night sky
see all the stars
see that blood moon
it could be my last one
so i took the time
to seize the moment

what we need to do more of

if you have a garden and live close to me
i sure hope you took the time
to cover up your garden veggies with a cover
like the thick white row cover i use on my garden
do it again tonight
then in this area you should be ok for the rest of the

last year i didnt do a good job and lost a lot of tomatoes
when it froze here around tax day

happy birthday today to my sweet smiley daughterinlaw
