Good Sunday morning peeps, I tried to view the Super Moon this morning but alas too many clouds
here's our Today's thought
“God’s gift I see that’s moving up there into the night
Though dark the mirror in the sky reflects us our light
Looks like a little brother to the sun
Or mother to the stars at night
And here it is and here it comes
Here comes the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon
Here comes the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon, the moon
~ George Harrison,
Here comes the moon

Unfortunately we didn't know about the moon last night and crashed when we got home. I would have loved to see it. I love big ol moons.
But we did see some wonderful sights yesterday, including a lot of the places that were talked about in The Chimney Still Stands that took place along the Buffalo river and in St Jo's. It was kinda cool. We also found out that our DIL's grandparents live up one of those remote dusts dirt roads in near the Buffalo.
I just kept hearing entire lines from the book through my head as we roamed through the area. It was a really cool day.
