It's been Solar Eclipse fever here in South Carolina and probably in every area in its path. We happen to be in North Carolina today, so we won't get to see it. Even with those stupid glasses, I don't want to risk burning my eyes by accident.

  1. Oh my gosh! I sat outside for an hour to see this using a homemade pinhole telescope but what we saw wasn't as dramatic as what you guys got over there!

    And OMG! That ending....aaaaah. Dany will be heart-broken when she sees she has to fight her own baby:(

  2. Well you will all be dead by the time this happens again in total in the Northern Hemisphere...........happens like what occurred about every 100 years!
    Obviously Turnip Top doesn't worry about his eyes.............shown here and around the World, no doubt, of him taking off his solar eclipse glasses and looking straight at it! Much it seems to the consternation of his wife and son!

    God Almighty if you just followed the rules there was NO CHANCE of your eyes being affected.

    Great to see the N.A.S.A chase planes following the eclipse cross from the Pacific (Oregon region) to the Atlantic ( the Carolinas).
    Cheers and bad luck for those who missed this phenomena.
    I think the next one for the Southern Hemisphere is 2028!

    1. Oh.....hope you enjoy the charms of Charlotte, NC., as much as I did. Have fun at the Zoo and I hope the polar bear cubs put a REAL SHOW on for you and Daisy.
      Cheers

  3. I don't think it lived up to the hype.

  4. We only had 65% coverage but we knew that before it started, we had a ball watching it progress.

  5. You were in Charlotte and missed Sandra Cox AND me here in NC, Adam! I'm sure we were the first thing on your mind as you headed to the zoo. (lol) I could see it not too far from my house, which was also near the local library where there was a small crowd. areas. It wasn't nearly as crowded as I thought it would be around here though, but I was amazed at the traffic in other areas. Hugs...

  6. I'm sorry that you and Daisy missed the eclipse, Adam. We got to 92% here in Aurora. It was amazing. My glasses worked fine. I did burn my eyes peaking at a partial eclipse back in the early 1960s. Fortunately my eyes recovered.

  7. We only had partial coverage here, but it was spectacular to witness. I laid in the grass just staring up at it with my glasses on. I'm so glad I got to experience it in my lifetime. Sorry you and Daisy missed it.

  8. All I saw was Drumpf needing to be told to look away.
