Super Red Woofing Moon!

Hello Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Well? Did you see it? I mean we have been told about it, what time it starts and the best time to view it and what did you do? Slept all the way through it I bet!

OTL almost missed it, like, he got up at ten past four, had a quick look out the curtains on his way out to the loo, then another look on his way back to bed and again at five fifty he got up and had another look. Both times there were bits missing from the moon but it wasn't red, a sort of silvery pale pinkish thing in the sky!

We were listening to the radio where an 'Expurt' was talking about what you missed at the very moment of full eclipse. The best description we heard was, 'If you were standing on the moon looking at earth, you would be seeing all the sunrise and sunsets all over the world at the same time!

Hey! Now then, wouldn't I like to see that,and better still, what would you call it, 'The Earth Fire Ring' ?

We didn't bother with the camera this morning 'cos unless we were up at five thirty we wouldn't have seen the red moon!

Mind you, at lunch time we could see the effect of the Super Full Moon had on the tide, right up the beach it was!

A Super Red Woofy High Tide and it's on the way out now!
Looking out over the Thames Estuary we could see the ships going past and a good showing of sea mist!

I see no ships! Only Hardships!
Back home there was a big bowl of chicken waiting for me and the prospect of a good snooze afterwards!

Tonight we will be watching the last of the DVD's while Old Two Legs is slurping the last few drops he manages to squeeze out of the bottle of malt whisky!

One of the good things is that he will be nibbling at a box of shortbread he got for Christmas and of course being 'Expurts' on Shortbread, Holly and I help him, with the Short Bread, not the whisky!

We both had a sniff of whisky some time back and we decided it was awful! I mean, you could clean a tractor engine with that stuff!

See you all tomorrow!
