G is for Good Night, Moon


Last night I was out for the weekly grocery shopping and the moon was full, big and
 bright!  It was sparkly even before it was dark!  I ran into my friend Bill as we were both walking in the parking lot.  Or maybe I should say he almost ran into me...literally!  haha...He apologized and said he was looking at the moon!  I said that I was, too! :) 





By the time I got home it was shining right above my house!
I parked across the street and took one last photograph.
Lovely.
Good Night, Moon!


I've joined in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April!
G is the letter for Saturday the 7th.

  2. I'm commenting on your last post - the birds - Betsy. You see all those birds in your yard? You are so lucky!! I am very jealous! Your pics are beautiful!! I teach preschool and the children today were very "out of sorts". Ha! Anyway, my teaching partner mentioned it was a full moon last night - don't know that I buy into that theory but it was a bit of an "off" day!! Thanks for blogging Betsy - always enjoyable. Kelley

    1. oh, I do buy into that full moon stuff! haha. I know some people that act very looney on the full moon! haha. And I have a friend who is an RN who says that they schedule extra staff on full moons at the hospital because crazy people do crazy things! haha.

      Thanks about the birds...yes...I took all of these from my yard. Still waiting on all the finches, wrens, and hopefully a titmouse and woodpecker! I live in Ohio...no special place for birds ..I don't know why they congregate here! lol. :)

    1. thanks, mari. I have to hold my breath when I have the zoom on that full...haha...and I even think my heartbeat can make it blurry! I think that's why people use tripods. haha.

  5. Still trying to get back into my routines. Love your A-Z shots even though I haven't commented on every one.
    These moon shots are wonderful. Reminds me of a song Frank Sinatra sang, and Don gave me the record when we were dating...."It's not the pale moon that excites me, thrills or delights me....oh no...it's just the nearness of you! Still melts my heart.
    BTW ~ the flashback picture of Taylor...Oh my..put lipstick and long hair and you have Betsy. I knew you favored...but that shot really show it. Sending Hugs

    1. those little almond crescents? yum. Or you could have just did cut out circles and called them full moons. lol. Happy Birthday to him! :)

  9. You almost got run over because of a full moon
    LMAO if there was no pictures I bet you know where the mind would go of this loon..hahahaha
    Oh I crack myself up
    As the cat eat the tail of the weiner pup
    Great shots though
    Like the close ups you show
    But the one driving was very neat
    As it looks oh so umm sweet
    Stole your word
    Bloody hell that is absurd
    Scream blue murder if you must
    Now this is bloody well going bust..haha

    1. you're calling yourself a loon?
      how appropriate at this full moon
      you are acting a little more crazy than most days
      maybe you have breathed in too much fur and are in a haze?

      Orlin bit that poor dog's tail?
      Did he let out a little wail?
      Ask him if it was pure beef
      or pork byproducts as he did eat.
      Glad you got some pictures though
      those will be fun to see at your show.

      you're going to drive your family crazy with all that bloody crap
      they'll send you home early without your sunday nap! lol.

      Delete
    2. LOL I call myself a loon all the time
      Or just crazy when I rhyme
      I guess we can blame the moon
      Or maybe all the extra hair at this dune
      Yeah he chowed down on the tail
      A little yelp came but not a wail
      I guess he liked how it went back and forth a bit
      And decided it was a hit
      Never really ate it though
      Just a nibble and then rolled around as the weiner took the stairs to the basement below..hahaha
      I stray from saying the bloody outloud so far
      But you never know I may have to say it at this other bar
      And we have monday off too
      So that is prob when I'll leave this zoo

      Delete
    3. poor little weiner dog
      should know by now at that hall
      that cats like tails that wiggle
      and little toys that jiggle
      any movement is just enticement
      to play and have some excitement
      if he didn't know that with 11 there
      now with 13 he'll remember at that lair.

      did I get those numbers right? 11 or is it 12?
      and yeah, I know I'll soon pass that shelf.
      lol. The mom comes to eat
      but hasnt bought the little beasts.
      yet.
      :)

      don't venture into the litter room
      or you might let out a 'bloody' and cause doom.
      lol.

      Delete
    4. LOL you were one off at this sea
      As there are 12 here that cause glee
      13 if you count the mutt
      Who I walked to help him get over being bit on the butt..hahaha
      So it is 14 now with my two
      Quite the zoo
      And yes I cringe when I go into the litter room
      To my ocd that place just screams doom..haha

      Delete
    5. 12? Well, things are cheaper by the dozen you know
      but maybe not with cats as they can eat a load.
      Maybe that next litter will never be brought here
      and the queen of cats crown can stay up there!
      yeah, not likely I know
      I'm doomed the title to show.
      Two more toms have come around
      now that really made me frown
      chasing after little Oreo and Grey
      I guess they smell good to them today.
      lol.

      Delete
    6. haha time to break out the pellet gun
      Or hide them until the snip snip is done
      For if you have two more
      That give you a litter at your shore
      You will surely be overloaded with cats
      Be like a herd of rats
      But you will surely earn your crown
      In every town

  18. Hi Betsy .. "ours" was full and fluttery too - as it floated around the trees and the evening clouds ... full cloud now - so suspect that's the end fo the moon for a few days ... and we might get rain - that's good news .. Happy Easter ... cheers Hilary

  20. The moon was shining brightly here too! It made me think of the song Moon River. I suppose I'm dating myself a little by that statement; nevertheless it is a beautiful song.

    Your pics are simply lovely! Did you serenade your five men with a song? ;-)

    1. Oh, I know that song. Maybe I'm older than you think. ha. My parents had it on a record album and played it all the time!

      And no, I didn't serenade them. lol They roll their eyes when I do things like that. haha.

  21. Just mesmerising. I love the moon and always stop to marvel at its glory. When I first saw the title of your post, Betsy, I thought it was about the lovely children's book of the same name! Wishing you and yours a Happy Easter weekend! xox Suzanne

  24. There is something about a full moon that is enchanting. I'll never forget the full moon that hung above our the lake right outside our camper window about 15 years ago. I still feel its magic.

    Hope you and yours have a wonderful Easter celebration!

  25. We've had some amazing evenings of full moon in the UK too. I love those photographs.
