 YIKES!  Lost track of posting.  If you were loosing sleep because I haven't posted anything, here's a catch-up post.  Rest easy.

Mommy painted a heart!

 New hair cut for son (it's really short - got me in trouble for cutting it)
 ...And Daughter too.  She wanted it this short.  Looks cute, tho.
 This is in the cement right outside of a Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt place.  What are they trying to say, I wonder?
 Made a tentacle cake for my students on the last day of class complete with chocolate chip blood "leaking" out of the severed part.
 These are the shoes we should all walk a mile in.
While sketching, this little fellow stopped to spectate.

Tonight's Eclipse as seen at 7:03p (large picture) using our 4.5" telescope with a 25mm magnifier, photos taken with iPhone pressed to lens.  Yay Nature! You can see the reflection of the sun/moon ghosting onto the lens itself, a low tech solution.

Me graduating in 1997. There were these free sodas which I helped myself to but found that I didn't have enough hands to get my diploma so I handed the sodas to Courtney Granner so he could hand me my diploma, causing everybody to crack up.  Fun times.

Goodbye Maurice Sendak.  Thanks for making children's books that both children and adult have loved for generations.

 The Jungle off Saratoga in San Jose has this really awesome life sized fiberglass giraffe. It isn't just schlocked together but actually has attention to anatomical detail such as iliac crest and gastrocnemius placement.  It's a wonderful gem hidden away in a play area for kids.
