We went to a hobby shop yesterday, and Far Guy met a bunch of other "train people" ..it was rather funny.. You see Far Guy has O scale trains..someone was asking a question about them and the store owner said well do you know Far Guy? Of course they didn’t ..but they do now.
It was cold yesterday, and this morning it was -12 degrees F or-24 degrees C way too cold to go out. So we will stay at home today.
Yesterday on our way home, I took a photo at the end of the drive..actually I took several. There is a sun-dog off to the right under the two small camera flares.
Then I took this photo..honest it is straight out of the camera..I would not pull your leg..I consider it one last gift from 2009. I will have to consult with one of my camera friends for an explanation..was it too cold..maybe Ed or someone else will know.. maybe it was just equal camera flares.
Around five o’clock I took off with my tripod to see if I could capture the blue moon.. I did. The moon is not easy to photograph especially once it gets dark.
I walked down to my brothers..eight children under the age of five were there..I got to feed the new baby..a room temperature bottle..she seemed to like it..I would have warmed it up but her Mother ( my niece) said..that’s the way she gets it all the time. Of course I gave her a load of what for about that..she knows me well so she just ignores me. This newest baby isn’t showing any inclination to scream when I enter the room ..yet…however my niece did a fairly good impression for her. When i walked back home the moon was obscured by clouds..good thing I had my trusty ugly yellow flashlight.
Far Guy was still laying down when I got home, I did rouse him to listen to some music with me. I let him listen to some Judith Durham ( former Seekers), I picked the Righteous Brothers "Unchained Melody" for a quick little belly rubbing slow dance around the living room. Then I progressed through some of my favorites by Roy Orbison "Pretty Woman", Abba "Dancing Queen" and one of Bob Dylan’s old songs sung by Adele " Make you feel my love" , and "Smile" by Uncle Kracker ..oh yeah and Meatloaf.."Two out of Three Ain’t Bad". I am pretty fussy with my music..if I like it I listen to it forever..rarely adding new songs.. this years big add was "Smile". Here’s to more smiles in twenty ten:)
