Well, we really enjoyed the eclipse last night. Unlike some of my spaces friends (Bill and Sheila) I did not take any pics, because my very fancy Canon PowerShot SD600 was just not cutting it. Bill and Sheila, however got some great photos and I’m betting my friend Jim might have taken some as well…we’ll just have to wait and see. I think Jacob and Hubby loved it the most.
About 8 PM last night I noticed Jacob kept stepping out the front door. I asked him what he was doing and he gave the standard “nothing” as his response. Then I realized he was looking at the moon. We had a great view out our front door. We kept going out and checking it periodically. It was, for lack of a better term, REALLY COOL. When we last looked at it about 10 PM, it was a nice copper color and the majority of the moon was eclipsed. So, I guess I’m all good till 2010.
I have a very freaked out dog on my hands. Poor Jiffy is not adjusting well to Lubie’s arrival. She is lying on my lap as I type at the computer and she NEVER has wanted to do that before. Now that Lubie is “coming out of his coma” and being more active and “tweety”, Jiffy will go stand under Lubie’s cage and growl and bark. We have been working hard to correct her consistently. I think Cesar Millan would be proud. When Jiffy hears anyone talking to Lubie, she gets so jealous and comes running! Hopefully she will adjust and things will calm down.
The other new development, is that our brilliant bird can lift the door to his cage!! He knows not what he does!!! This is a disaster waiting to happen. Or should I say, this is a little Birdie snack for Jiffy waiting to happen.
Being the MacGyver that I am, I have utilized some handy dandy twist ties to keep the doors closed. Such a brilliant bird we have. Hopefully he doesn’t chew through the twisties. Keeping my fingers crossed and my twisties tied.
