Another Year Notched Up [Jan. 21st, 2019|09:16 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz bought fleece lined trousers for my mother but they were too long in the leg and rather than return them to the seller (which would involve taking them to a collection point in Wadhurst or Marden) I claimed them. Normally I wear jeans but I thought if I didn't choose to wear the fleeces on a frosty day like today I never would- so I did.

At my age you get up several times in the night as a matter of course so it was no hardship- or nothing out of the ordinary- to be up at 4.30 to take a look at the super blood wolf moon. The sky was clear over Kent but a little hazy- and the moon was high in the sky and small and brown and blotchy with silvering to the side. It looked unwell.

My mother didn't want to get up this morning. "Oh, go away!" she said. I told her to stop behaving like a 5 year old and I hadn't wanted to get up either but I'd made myself. Then, once she was on her feet, I lightened the mood by telling her it was my birthday and how old I was. "You're never 68," she said.

"Oh yes, I am!"

Happy birthday!

I set the alarm for four, to catch the eclipse, but there was too much cloud here.

I'm glad to have seen the eclipse but it was more sad than spectacular.

Happy Birthday! I dashed outside in the cold to take a quick look at the moon; it looked a bit like Mars to me.

I've been wearing fleecy shirts for a good while now. These are my first fleecy trousers.

Happy birthday!

It was somewhat cloudy when I went to bed and for once I didn't wake in the night. By the time I got up, at around 7.20 a.m. I caught a glimpse of the moon that was perhaps more yellow than usual, but it disappeared below a bank of cloud before I could try to photograph it.

I believe you were lucky to get even a glimpse. According to the weather reports I read the west of the country was mostly blanketed in cloud.

HappY BirthDay!!

oo momma its my Birthday!

mom kept telling me I could not get old
as she stayed 39,
made the post stroke answer of how old are you null.
asking what year were you born was more accurate.

fleece lined pants
are a gift of the gods
nothing like covering ones assets
to help with the cold.

I've resorted to wearing sox
there's wind chill in here.

Re: HappY BirthDay!!

Thanks.

The trouble with the fleecy trousers is they're made of some material that makes a swishing sound when I walk. We're going out today and I'm reverting to jeans. I don't want to be turning heads.

Re: HappY BirthDay!!

should be better after they are laundered
try rumpling them up ? to break up the sound

I remember that sounds as a kid in my snow suit.
