Looking toward the stars ...

***
THIS MAY BE MY LAST POST FOR A WHILE


This burden's been just a little too heavy for me to carry by myself for too long without my paying a heavy price. I'm very down physically and mentally, don't think I'm being very productive, and don't feel I'm particularly useful to anyone in my present condition. I'm a little overwhelmed, I guess, and am just not very much fun. I'm planning on taking a short or long (I don't know) sabbatical to get myself out of this funk. Rest and peace of mind have been impossible to come by lately, and what little I have gotten hasn't helped very much.

I did manage to make a nice discovery after hearing about the UFO around the Atlantis Space Shuttle today. I turned my modest 3" reflector telescope heavenward, attached my little digital camera to the eyepiece, and got a rather distorted image of this object in question:

UFO001


As you can see, although my lens altered the shape somewhat, especially after enlarging the image in my little old primitive paint program, it is definitely man-made. I couldn't figure out what it was and decided to use one of those face-recognition programs and, lo and behold, this is what came up:

Caboodles


Recognize it? It's a makeup case, a Caboodles Clear/Silver Pro Case with Stars which retails for about $20. I guess this is what happens when you put women into space, but you'd think with all their smarts and training, they could keep track of their stuff.

Problem solved, eh?

Hope everybody continues to be well. See ya later ... whenever I get back. I'll try to check in occasionally if I can get to a computer.

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars

Sorry to hear of you taking the break, except that it might be what you need. Certainly I am not opposed to folk getting what they need. We'll surely miss you up here.

I know I get the funk too... and work often makes it hard for me to keep up with things here. Know that there are many of us up here awaiting your return.

Cheers

It sounds like you need a hug, a movie and some chicken salad sandwiches. I just have to work on making the chicken salad sandwiches.LOL. A day off would be good too. The saints game should have helped you though. YEAH SAINTS!!!! Hope your doing better. Hugs and kisses Nicole and Tay.
