Tonight we were chased by the police and questioned. All for you, dear readers. The day started out quite simply with the family gathering for my birthday. I told them that no matter where we were at 7:45, I wanted to go and take pictures of the Super Moon, as it is being called. This is because it is closer to the earth than it has been in many years. It would be huge. So this evening found me with Phil, our son, and little granddaughter beside a big field on the edge of town by a Food Lion. This is the only place where you can get a clear view of moonrise without buildings or trees in the way. But it is also heavily patrolled by the police because of vandalism. We were chased off twice by the police. We came back. Then, just as the beautiful big moon came up, so did the police. With lights blazing. My son's comment? "Oh no, the police car lights are going to ruin mom's moon pictures!" That's my boy!! After giving the policeman our story, he wanted our license and registration to run through the system. He finally left us alone to snap in peace. I wanted to take the policeman's picture to show you, but my son said he would have arrested us all for sure. Our little granddaughter will have a great story to tell about celebrating grandma's birthday!! It actually made me feel rather young and daring, being in trouble with the law and all. A band of outlaws on a blamy spring evening. Not bad for 62! A birthday celebration to remember.
