Because it was so clear, we stopped on the way home to look up, even though my walking buddy is not that interested in the stars. If Saturn is to the south, I think we did spot it, and also Pollux. I will check the maps again before the next walk. It is hard to really look if there is only a certain amount of time for a walk, and an errand right after. Even with all the light pollution, it was lovely.
Subjects covered: heart transplant phenomena, , NDEs, black labs, April Fool jokes, car repairmen, The Lovely Bones and how it’s equally riveting the second time around.
We gave the fence with the vicious barker (hard to tell, but maybe a black lab mix) a wide berth, wondering if it was the right fence, and suddenly, there he was! He had a companion who sounded much smaller, and not quite brave enough to stand up there for anyone to see. Near my house, we found the cockroaches, who did not care for my flashlight, and headed for the crevices in the sidewalk. A for sale sign caught our eye, and the flyers weren’t all gone, so we learned the price, which will surely be bid upward.
