You are to be commended for knowing Morse code at all. It seems like it would be very difficult to learn and to decipher when hearing it.

I think it's natural to lose (some of) our Devil Dog ways at some point.

I thought I would combine two celebrations into one by posting a poem about astronauts.

Blast Off

-Lee Bennett Hopkins

A rocket ship
will take you far
to see a crater,
quasar,
star,

constellations - -

brilliant, bright - -

a planet,
comet,
meteorite - -

Blast off, child,
it's
time
for
flight.

Well done! Best I could come up with was some blueberry pie.

(Could be a job for a superhero)

I don't know about the pies in that video, but I'm starving and could eat a whole real blueberry pie right now.

Does your howling disturb the neighbors?

One of our former (thankfully) next door neighbors had 2 dogs that stayed on a deck and barked all day, whether they saw anyone or not.

There are many stray cats in our neighborhood but at least they are relatively quiet.

I occasionally hear some kind of cat ruckus during the night. I don't know if it's from tabby cats or not.

Maybe I, too, should dress up today. Now, where's the nearest phone booth?

I probably already look like a zombie, due to my cold and lack of sleep last night, so I'm all set.

I can't remember the last time I saw a phone booth.
