Blue moon

Jilda and I had dinner with friends tonight. They live in Fayette and we live in Empire, so we met in Jasper which is in the middle.

We don't get to spend enough time with our friends. The last time we saw them was at Christmas. 

We had a delightful time catching up.  

We paid the tab and headed to the cars. I heard Jo Frances say, "Oh look! The moon."  Between two buildings, I could see the moon rising over the city.

I had the camera in my car so I strapped on a telephoto and shot a few frames.

After we said our goodbyes and headed home, the full moon was like a hood ornament for a while before ascending into the sky.

Jilda told me it's the last blue moon of this decade. I'm thrilled that the skies were clear.


  1. Beautiful, great shot. But I see a raccoon with a hearing device like mine!!

  3. What an amazing shot of the moon.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. This doesn’t seem real. I love the picture but why is it called a blue moon?

  5. Hi, great blog. 🌸

  6. So I missed my "once in a blue moon" opportunity? Great looks like the moon is wearing sunglasses!

  7. Now I have a Fats Domino earwig stuck.
