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.

 

 


Thanks for sharing Muse :smileyhappy:

it's good to see you here

I remember His Juicer lol..VT Weather Update Crystal Clear Blue Skies...Birds are Chirping...But Very Warm for VT...And your Neck of The Woods?

 

Hot and humid out by Pittsburgh.  Storms most of last night (some of the thunder was so loud it actually woke me up!).  No serious damage or flooding, though.  More storms tonight, but I don't think they'll be quite as noisy.

 

I feel bad for the folks in places that have gotten hit by fires or worse storms -- I can't imagine losing everything that way.

Re: Thought for the Day

Here's our Tuesday thought for the day

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
~ Emma Lazarus, The New Colossus

See what happens.”
