|A blue moon.|
When I answered the phone about half an hour ago, it was our neighbor, Bill. He told me about the "blue moon" that was in the night sky this evening.
Lon and I met Bill in the road and we all looked at the moon with his binoculars. I went back in the house, got my camera and took all of the pictures above. With the naked eye, the moon wasn't this beautiful color. When I zoomed in with my camera and focused the lens, this is the color that I saw and the camera processed.
On The Weather Channel website, I read this: Though blue moons happen more often than "once in a blue moon," enjoy tonight; the next seasonal one isn't until May 21st, 2016.
What an exciting way to cap off this beautiful summer day!
P.S. Per Wikipedia: A blue moon is an extra full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year, either the third of four full moons in a season or, recently, a second full moon in a month of the common calendar. Metaphorically, a "blue moon" is a rare event, as in the expression "Once in a blue moon."
The phrase has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon, although a literal "blue moon" (the moon appearing with a tinge of blue) may occur in certain atmospheric conditions; e.g., when volcanic eruptions or exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere.

|Aren't they an awesome couple? I'll answer my own question: Indeed, they are!!|
|Why did Uncle Lon and Aunt Cheryl have to step in and ruin what could have been another fine photo? I'll answer that too: It's a relative thing!!|
|Lon and I love his sister, Jill. She's living so far away in Georgia that we don't see her very often.|
|Our niece, Tamara, and her husband, Brian, were all smiles when we shared the latest news in our lives. See their beverage jars? All guests were encouraged to take theirs home as a wedding celebration momento. I love mine.|

|Here we are at Popeye's, of course!! These three smiling faces are Alice, me and Lynnette.|
|Lon and I truly enjoy Lynnette (my cousin) and Alice's regular summer visits. They come to see us from Buckeye Lake in Ohio.|
I miss them already, but we'll keep in touch by playing "Words With Friends" every day.

|For the love of birds, popular sports teams have been named.|
