When You Wish upon a Star

About to go to bed but went out to catch the Perseids. Good clear night and although they weren't exactly coming thick and fast there was steady procession along with a few satellites.

Oh and two helicoptors but we get them every day.

Bit chilly but SWMBO and I will be out again tomorrow night with extra wrapping, a reclining chair and a single malt. I still find them magical.

nice

3:30 pm here -- we are getting tons of overflights of canadian geese -- honk, honk, honk -- no more than 50-100 feet off the ground in flights of 20-60

We cant see stars in NYC...but I can see some wildlife...

Like a little song bird:


An Ibis flying across Jamaica Bay:


Forgot the kind of bird this is:


Then there's the human kind of sparking/twinkling starlights:




All I ever really needed to know, I learned from watching Star Trek.

I just got back from a 7 day Disney Cruise and still have that song in my head ... maybe because the ships horn plays it.

VooDoo..that "Rumpolean" reference to SWMBO reminds me of the great Leo MacKern. I have in the past referred to the mother-in-law as such. The wife as the SWMBette. Is it common usage?

I wondered if the reference would be noted. I loved Mortimer's books and the TV adaptations were excellent, Mckern was indeed great. The phrase is also the longer version of the title of the Rider Haggard book, She. The 'she' being Ayesha who ruled over the Amahagger tribe.

I actually do not use the phrase usually but just put it in my message for fun.
