The dreaded skunk made its late July appearance in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood last night. Fortunately, Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyke was safely on the back porch when I caught the first whiff, and I was able to shut the door before she raced to investigate.
So — knock on wood — no repeat of last year’s thorough skunking, from which she appears to have recovered better than my dear wife Karen and I.
Some poor thing quite nearby got it, and the aroma remains. For the time being, early morning and after-dark precautionary leashed walks will have to suffice for Ellie B’s needs.
On the way back just now, I noticed the Blue Moon, as in “once-in-a,” that has gotten its share of attention around these parts today.
The clouds are moving in and out like a curtain. I grabbed my iPad Air and did my best.
I ran in to get Karen, and snapped as many photos as my patience and the 1-1 Mets-Nationals game on my flat screen allowed. I think they’re cool. But the full moon didn’t come out for us.
Did you spot a Blue Moon tonight? What haven’t you done lately under the moon that would be fun? Do you like Blue Moon beer?
