MoonriseThis picture, snapped with my iPod camera, doesn’t do justice to the moonrise over the back porch last night. The sky was a pale violet, and the sky was so clear you could see nearly every detail of the moon’s surface.

We had two weeks of hot weather this year. One the last week of June, and the other this past week. Now the fall has set in again, and the temperatures are dropping into the 40s overnight.

I got the flannel pajamas out last night. The kid is pressing me to figure out what I want to be for Halloween. It’s all a little much.
