Yay, Earth Image checked in with an update of his journey to see the solar eclipse and sent some pix…
I became delirious looking into the eclipse corona and took off on an imaginative road trip, covering Myrtle Beach, the battlefields of the Shenandoah Valley, paying homage to Stonewall Jackson while I still could, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal pull path linear national park 184 miles along the north edge of the Potomac, the battlefields of Gettysburg, the Appalachian trail, and finally up to CT.

Cos Harbour, in a different light, shares the newest USPS stamp, that when you touch the center of the stamp, dark goes to light. Heh. Now if USPS could only do that with speed of deliveries, I’d be impressed. Dumb question, but once you press the stamp and it gets light, does it go back to dark after some time period? Is it a one-time thing? And if the stamp goes through the meter, will it turn to light? IMW2K.
Speaking of Dodging the bullet (okay, we’re not talking about dodging anything, but this was the only segue I could come up with), CosHarbour also sent two fabulous pix of a 1936 Dodge Brothers car and asks, Whatever Happened to the Dodge Brothers?
Totally non-related, Trump pardons Joe Arpaio. And Seb Gorka resigns. Looks like Texas isn’t the only place getting hit by high winds.
Happy Saturday. Perfectly beautiful autumn-like day. Not a cloud in the sky. Temps feel like September. Fourteenth day sticking to the meal plan. Life is good.
