My cousin Elaine posted on Facebook, “Go look at the moon”. I went to look and couldn’t find the moon. Maybe wrong position at my house, maybe clouds. At 4 a.m. my eyes popped open as there was a bright light shinning in them—the moon! Ah, I see Elaine, what you were speaking of, NOW I see it. Oh my!
The same thing happened when there was all the fuss about the Super Moon. The moon that was the brightest moon EVER. Everyone looked for it when they went to bed but it was cloudy. Again at 4 a.m. my eyes popped open and there it was. The clouds were clearing. I got up, got my camera and started shooting. No good from the bedroom window. To my (home) office. No good through the glass; open the sliding glass door. Snapping away, adjusting the settings… THEN I see the (indoor) cat out on the deck!!!
Nice kitty, come back inside kitty kitty, I’m outside coaxing in my pajamas. Got her back in the house, checked on the other cat, took a couple more shots, and went back to bed. Wait…did I see both cats when I got in bed? Back to the deck and there is Leeluu out on the deck! The moon or the cat! Now you see them, now you don’t! One more time I coax her in and finally got to bed.
