Moonlight

Wow! Two posts in a row not related to politics or religion!

I live in a room that my old man built in part of the shed out the back. It's a reasonable sized room with a reverse-cycle A/C so temperature isn't a problem. Anyway, I went outside to go into the main hou
se at about midnight this morning and noticed the moon. I immediately noticed the moonlight shining in the garden. It was a clear sky last night and the moon was right above my head (straight up). So I took a photo with my new camera. I think the zoom is just about right. I can actually get up a bit closer but you lose some of the effect. In some way it resembles the photo I took, with a less quality camera, of the solar ecplise that passed over South Australia in December 2002. I was standing in the 100% eclipse zone (not the 99%). Maybe I'll scan it someday.And here is a pic of my room taken at exactly the same time. (Before you comment, my room is in the centre. To the left is the cubby house and to the right the rest of the shed.)

What's a cubby house? It must be an Australian thing. ;-)

That was actually on honest question. I have absolutely no idea what a cubby house is. I'm assuming it's the building on stilts there near the white chair, but what is it for?

Sorry, blogger was down when I tried to reply. Yes, It's the thing on stilts. It's for kids to play in. Put little chairs in there, have tea parties etc etc.

That was built when I was three (the stairs are being repaired at the moment) and I used to spend hours in there.

Answer your question?

So, you were going 'inside the house', eh? That's not what you told me! Anyway, with the dry winter we've been having, I appreciate you watering the lawn at midnight!

MMM! Reminds me - must fix that cubby house. It's 18 years old now and needs a refurbishment. (I was tempted to say 'modernization' but Indolent's sensibilities would have seen the post deleted!

Maybe... needs cleaning first of course.

So your dad finally got sick of you, living in the same house for 21 years. I dont blame him!
