Good morning. I guess this is the day when the "weather cool down" starts here in New England. The sun is not out and it looks like it might rain soon. Actually, they are saying that we will have showers off and on today. The good thing is that it is raining in Texas. Hopefully, it will be enough to help put out some of the fires.
Well, yesterday was an expensive, yet fruitful day. Dee, Eddie and I went shopping to buy me a generator. Now we just have to get it set up and figure out how to best run the electrical cord into the house. Normally that's not a difficult job, but we have to make sure that the winter snow plowing won't cause any damage to the cord. We'll have to work on that.
Folks, last night I got so excited. There was a beautiful moon, so I took my camera out to see if I could get any decent shots. I did get one photo that I liked, but the surprise came when I put it in my computer and zoomed in on it. Stars! Lots of tiny little stars showed in my photo. I cropped a portion of the photo to show the stars. You have to look close to see them (tiny light spots on photo) because this is such a tiny photo here on the blog. In the original photo, they are much easier to see.
My camera was set on "motion" (there was a breeze blowing) with an ISO of 3200. I did not use flash, and it is hand held. I was in too much of a rush to set up the tripod. Try clicking on the photo. Usually it will get bigger, making it easier to see the little stars.
That's all I have time for this morning. Tootsie and I have to be getting ready for her doctor appointment. It's supposed to be only a check up, but they will probably be doing blood work too. Not exactly one of Tootsie's favorite ways to spend a morning! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
