Almost midnight

July is not over yet.  There's a full moon tonight, and there was one on the first of July also.    

My turn to Mamaw sit.  We've been going in shifts.  

Tonight's reading selection is Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. About one chapter in, seems like it'll be a good read to pass the time 'til morning.

Good luck.

I saw the moon on the way out of a concert. Saw James Taylor tonight.

The full moon rose around 8:30 tonight and now at 9:30 it doesn't look to be very blue to me.  I'll be crapping out around ten so I may miss it. R&L ;-)

Blue means rare.   Great read.  Thanks for checking in.  Will you be doing any howling this evening?

I was so entertained by that book - and so impressed by how the author tied in actual historical stuff to his (funny?) theory.  You've picked a good read to get you through the night. I hope your vigil goes well.

oh oh oh....James Taylor, one of my 10 stories !  Hey guys, good morning.  Back at the house to check in here, she's still sleeping.  We bought an infant monitor, so I'll hear when she starts rustling around.  Then, I'll get off here and go make her coffee.  Knock wood, after these last two weeks we're all settling down to routine again.  Damn..., it's been a wild ride.  (rustling, settling, riding...can you tell I've been reading Westerns?)

kosher, how was he?  I love, love, love James Taylor.  Saw him in concert back in the late 70's at a very small college venue.  He sat on a folding chair not 20 feet from me, and during the intermission people brought pieces of paper up to his chair for requests.  Carly Simon made a surprise appearance and they sang Mocking bird together.  I still get chill bumps thinking about it.  When my two youngest were babies, and I had the house to myself so often, I had 4 cd's I listened to over and over and over again.  One of James, one of Eric Clapton, one of Bonny Raitt and one of Sade's.  They were my 'best friends' until the internet came along.  

JMac, haven't had a chance to listen to any radio stuff yet, I so sympathized with your post on the tech stuff.  Sounds like you're getting the hang of it.  

Zanelle !  Thanks for accepting my friend request.  GB's momma reminds me so much of what you've typed of your mom.  She's 90, and still has a good mind and this is not our first rodeo with her hurting herself and us all being her servants.  I'm learning, and not sure I like all the lessons.  This little bit of home grown flowers I saved from last year, is about all that's getting me thru this.  I mean, she's not even my mom and she knows just what buttons to push.   

Alysa, accurate historical novels are my favorite.  I only got two chapters in before I dozed off, but when he mentioned the vampires in France, I thought of you and that last post of yours.  

Art, weren't those bumper stickers with him and Palin of Dick Neely's funny?

Ha. Beautiful moon, though I gotta say, this blue moon stuff gets to me. The moon is full every, what 29 days. Without fail. so we have this screwy calendar that has no natural rhythm to it and every once in a while the moon in its ever repeating 29 day pattern (or whatever it is) fits twice into one of our ever shifting months. Bah humbug. The moon is ever so more regular and predictable than this crazy roman tax calendar. Opps. A rant.
