Chasing the White Rabbit

Yesterday morning I didn't post anything because I had to shut Sluggo down for the duration of the thunderstorm, and then I spent a big part of the rest of the night watching the sky full of moon and clouds. Yesterday afternoon I wrote an entry about it, but Sluggo ate my words before I could post them. Last night, I had a lot of catching up to do, much of it because of Sluggo's recent misbehavior. (He hates the hot weather.) So I haven't had time to reconstruct the lost entry. Computers can be such annoying things. Maybe I'll trade Sluggo for a cat.

Hey, weather! Be cool!

Doubly Belated

The full moon rising higher now shines a single shaft of light between the pines southeast of my house, and the light falls on the trees up the street. The dark oaks and pines reflect little of it, but the paler leaves of the dogwood look almost as though they were covered with frost. It is a small patch of winter in the balmy summer night. Just looking at it makes me feel cooler.
