It was reasonably warm here at 35%. However quite windy.

Light pollution was awful (Blame Christmas lights?)

Saw nothing for about an hour. Got warm with two fingers of Glen Fiddich neat.

I can't drink in the winter time. Gives me a headache. Blood vessels expanding may be the reason .

one of these days there will be a meteor shower in the summer and on a day I am feeling good. A lot of lights around here but a very short drive puts you in the country.

Same for me. But at times my 2nd floor patio is a decent spot to see half the sky.
Got to block some back yard lights with hands.


But if all is right I go to my friend in the country.. Nice,,,



I miss living in the country...
