Da' Moon

What a pretty moon it is tonight.

I walked up the hill this evening to get some shots of the moon. Lou said it was gonna be a purty one tonight and indeed it is!

Huh? Are there two moons out tonight? I don't remember Lou talking about that.

OK, no need to fear. I know what's going on here.

Look at Mr.HandsomePants. He brought dinner. Burgers from the nearest bar in the country.

OMG.....we have lived here for 4 years and tonight was the first time we have eaten the cheeseburgers from a bar 6 miles from here and let me tell you, that is the best hamburger I have put in my mouth in years! Plus you can call ahead and go through the drive-thru so you don't even have to deal with the drunks! Sounds like we will be going back for that again someday.

Awesome, what a treat! We noticed the moon out there tonight. Out here it is low low low and HUGE. It looks like a spaceship about to land. I love it when it's so prominant!

Jen girl...the burgers are from the Hilltop believe it or not. I know you know where that is!

Isn't it great to find great food, and close to your house!! That is a bonus!! A good burger sounds so good right now.
I heard about the moon tonight. It's supposed to be the brightest moon. And it won't be this bright again until 2016.

YUM! Big, greasy burgers! And no drunks!!!

I actually saw something on TV tonight that the moon is 30% bigger tonight than it has been in 15 years just due to it's current rotation. And that it is higher in the sky, there fore reflection 30% more of the suns light. Explaining why everyone is finding the moon bigger and brighter tonight. ;P Where you can see it anyways.... It's cloudy and rainy here so I can't even check it out....

I'm glad Mr.HansomePants did not moon you.

Beautiful picture of the moon, Lisa. It was so pretty last night.

A truly good burger is a satisfying thing.

I loved the suspense in this post.

Nice moon shot. Here in New Mexico, the best cheeseburgers (with green chile, of course) are found at the Staghorn bar in San Antonio, NM, which is about an hour South of Albuquerque.

Yes, the moon was so gorgeous last night. It is the closest to earth in it's ratation and won't be like that for another 15 years. Lordy, I'd be 82. Hope I can still MOON then. Hee Hee!

I remember my dad bringing me a cheeseburger from the local beer joint. It was the best cheeseburger that I ever had.
