    It started innocent enough. I tried a viewing of Saturn just to see what it was like. It was a 60mm-f/14, what trouble could I find? Next it was the Great Orion Nebula, and without even realizing what was happening, my friends begin to change. I am hanging out at all hours of the night. I came in last night at 3:00 in the morning. My wife ask me where I had been, and I told her mostly in Libra and Sagittarius. Spending money on eyepieces and new scopes. Now, I am seeing red giants, white dwarfs, and degenerate stars. Live long and Prosper my friends. I've got to cyber skip over to Agena. NExt time I see Jupiter, I'll be packing a 9mm :)

    Talking of "...being in Libra & Sagittarius." Being out 'til 3:00am. Packin' a 9mm.....Whoo Boy! She must think your hangin' with a kinky girl into astrology and can see the Love-Beads and smell the incense now!

    Something like this, perhaps...





    On a more positive note:

    All right. I had to find something a little closer to my hills. These boys are an hour south of me, in a little town called Fort Payne. I've fished down in Gunther lake , but I digress. Here's a Moon song from my down home country heart to my friends who are looking up all over the globe.

    I don't know how far we can go here, and I don't want to push it, but let's just say that if you've already admitted to your wife that you were "in Libra and Sagittarius," that's grounds for divorce in most states.

    Probably not Alabama or West Virginia, though.

    And packing 9mm? "Is that an eyepiece in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Oh, it's an eyepiece." I'm surprised your wife hasn't divorced you for that reason alone.

    :p
