It's not dark here yet but I'm ready for for 8:34 when it should be at it's most magnificent here.


Go outside!!

Omigosh! I'm a huge full moon fan and I always watch the calendar to see when it will occur. I make it a point to go outside to see it every month and tonight's (actually my calendar says tomorrow night's) moon is gorgeous.

Glenn and I were out tonight and the ride home was sooooo beautiful following the big golden orb in the sky.

Can't wait for tomorrow night.

Now I see it! Hey, wait a cotton picking minute, isn't the moon in the other direction tonight? BT I think you are pulling my leg!

It was too cloudy here tonight. I will never forget the one my mom and I saw about 40 years ago though. We were walking home from the store and there it was, HUGE and dark orange. If you picture the moon normally as a golf ball, this was a basketball. I never knew it was called a Super Moon until this last year. We tried explaining it to people, but I think they thought we were exaggerating. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen! I wish I had been able to get a picture of it, but I will always have the picture in my mind.

We drove 6 km down to the lake shore to see it. It was lovely. I forgot to bring the camera, so I took some pix with my iPhone. How the heck do I get those pix off my iPhone without emailing them? I get charged for picture emails.

I synced the phone on my computer, but all I see is a new folder called "iPod Photo Cache" with a single file: "Photo Database". It has no file extension and it's only 2kb.
