Oh baby indeed

Had the good fortune to attend an impromptu stargazing event at the park's observatory last night hosted by the resident enthusiast. Had the misfortune to have it attended by a party with a hacking cough who shared the eyepiece with us all.

This dummy had to participate didn't he?

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch

Today I moved back to LoWs for a week of boondocking to pick up my mail (including a certain eagerly-awaited, hot-off-the-presses, brand new ,whizzbang, tech gadget I had shipped here :-) and to regroup for the next adventure, wherever that takes me.

The Trespasser's Eyeshine

She put the butt end of the flashlight against her forehead, just above the space between her eyebrows. It was something she'd learned long ago about seeing at night. A light shined from there would reveal nothing of herself to a trespasser, and from that spot on her forehead a beam would go straight to the retinas and return to her own eyes the characteristic color of the trespasser's eyeshine. If it had eyes, of course, and if they were looking at her directly.
