Full Moon. Again!

This will be my last California full moon for awhile. It was bright and gorgeous last night but after getting home from a night with my daughter and some friends, sharing some great apps at Cecil's (steamers in a broth we had to order more bread to not miss a drop, fried oysters, calamari, crab mac and cheese), then moving on to an after hours birthday party, listening to great music - The HumBros - and drinking good wine (you're right, Tara, you and Shelton have created a restaurant - The Lost French Man - that doesn't have any bad wine! Merci!), I was only appreciating the light of the moon to get inside without a stumble. That worked! I'll be getting photos tonight. I'm pretty sure.

While you await the full moon, here is the fullness of a
Golden Nugget cherry tomato, the first ripe offering of the vine!
Where ever you are, Northern or Southern hemisphere, tonight's moon comes with a name. Rather, a lot of names. Have you memorized these yet? There will be a test.

The Full Sturgeon Moon, when that large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water like Lake Champlain is most readily caught. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because the moon rises looking reddish through sultry haze, or as the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. from

Down Under, where winter will give way to Spring, moon names for August reflect a very different season. The Snow Moon, the Storm Moon, the Hunger Moon, and my favorite, the Wolf Moon.

Whatever you call it, hopefully clouds won't get in your way.

Slightly blurry but maybe I was as well?
Nah, it's the cameras fault.

That's all I got

Have a telepathic Thursday. Do something (non) terrestrial
