In awe, I watched the waxing moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an ambered chariot towards the ebony void of infinite space wherein the tethered belts of Jupiter and Mars hang, for ever festooned in their orbital majesty.

    1. Yes, good old Arthur. You made me go back and check the post to make sure I hadn’t misspelled ‘Author’ somewhere…
      Or maybe I should go back and replace ‘Author’ with ‘Arthur’ and see who notices – besides you…


  1. These are great Margy. I liked the one about the guy contemplating his toilet needed a roof. Perhaps I liked that one because my husband loves to tell stories about how they only had an outhouse as a child.


    1. There was an outhouse at my husband’s grandparents place. We were only there in the summer, but it made me appreciate modern facilities in the winter time.
      When our kids were little, we camped a lot. The gaping hole of an outhouse toilet was not their favourite thing!
