For the last decade or so my brain has felt fuzzy. Weird work hours, lack of sleep, complicated things to think and write about, altitude, no oxygen etc. The list goes on. Then there's the cats. There used to be three of them but now only two, and those two have to be taken to their "vacation" home tomorrow and I'm dreading it. They know I'm up to something no matter how much advanced planning I do. Getting them both in the pet carrier is challenging and even though I've tried to do nothing different this evening, they know something's up. They've both found places to hide I've yet to discover. My tactics will have to change again I think...
The fuzzy brain syndrome may not last too much longer though (but I wonder if it's to be taken over by jet lag). I'm down at sea level with the coqui frogs, the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs and lots of rain, but that's OK! Trouble is, I don't think I can take photos like these down here, so really don't know what to do. Another problem to add to the list!
Anyway, hope you like these two taken while I was up last week. The one at the top is of course the shadow of Mauna Kea at sunset and the one below is a fiery sky above Hualalai well after sunset and about the time I should be starting to take some data with the telescope.
No missile launches to report I'm afraid, and even if there were it's too cloudy down here to see them.
