'Twas not to be ...

You all know (or you should by now) how crazy I am about the moon. (Maybe it's from the moon?) Here are my attempts at catching that bloody super moon eclipse. I will say that I was very, extremely, profoundly, heartrendingly disappointed. I saw no "blood." All I could see the whole time it was eclipsed was black. My camera was a disappointment to me too, and my arms, the whole thing. Naturally, Tacky cat came to see what I was doing and wanted to help.
Start - kinda

Thinner clouds

Almost covered,
 Then - nothing but black ...
Over and coming out of it.
 I did see a lot of wonderful shots contributed by those lucky enough to actually see the event. Thanks, Y'all!

Yard Ornaments

I planned to post earlier, but I had this irresistible urge to take a nap first. Now, of course, I feel more like crap than refreshed. DH never made it to town today, seems he had the same urge. So, instead of buying 3 "For Sale" signs for the yard ornaments, sleep won us both. I didn't take a picture of the truck - it needs to go too or be swapped for something that is more desirable and trustworthy.
Yard Ornaments ca 1994 & 1985
 Have a wonderful weekend!

Latest Garage Occupant

At last! I am tired of, "Hon, look at this one," and having to drop what I'm doing to look at yet another old car. What I would like to see next is "For Sale" signs on some of what looks like a used car lot in our yard. Really!

Oh, this one is a 1941 Dodge that's older than I am - wish I looked as good, and I pray that it functions better than I do!

An early morning

Picture I promised before, as you can see over half is on the ground.

Chilly this a.m. the pond is warmer than the air. Brr!

Tacky heard me outside and came a-running!
My Mourning Doves are back and a few sparrows. The crows are here this morning eating the wal-mart cheap feed - mostly cracked corn. The doves and sparrows don't touch ...
Have a great whatever Y'all!

Bye - Bye Birdies

Has been a while, sorry. Feeling kind of blah and sneezing like crazy. The pollen count has been high lately.

I don't seem to have any more birds ...

I don't know if it was time for them to give up the neighborhood or if the new bag of seed we got from Wal Mart is the reason. Maybe the little guys knew their housing was going to be trashed by a storm. I don't know. I see crows. Even my Cardinals who live here year round (until now) have bid me a Hasta-la-bye-bye

A day or so after the new bird seed, we had a storm. It was very windy, and everything was going sideways.

This womb is getting to me!

Jill's bed takes up so much room, I am actually considering getting a larger bed for myself and throwing hers away. She always wants to sleep with me anyway - right? Think it might stop the tromping around in the night and give me different usable space. A lot of this stuff has to hit the garbage can. Why save it anyway? Oh, I know that I really wanted to die and leave the mess for someone else to clean up as revenge, but ...

Thinking of getting some bookcases and making more of my things vertical. Does that make sense? Ideally one of those tall pantry like things with shelves for books and boxes ... I guess I should let my fingers do the shopping. Any suggestions for 'space saving' would be nice.

Have a great day, night, whatever!
