Blue Moon

Bigfoot sightings

Yeah, we’re talking about rare things on this blue moon Friday.

Many years ago my husband and I purchased our first home on a blue moon. Tonight will be the 7th double full moon month since then, and we’re still rattling around under the same roof. Obviously, if you want to talk about something really rare – get Barb to take on a mortgage.

Here’s the thing that amazes me about the topic of blue moons –
Every single article I’ve read about them warns the reader to prepare for disappointment. Tonight’s moon will not rise in the hue of blue…

Well, duh.
Apparently some writers think intelligence in their readership is rare, as well.

Yeah, and here’s another news flash, folks –
Tonight’s moon won’t be sad either.

On a related note, Neil Armstrong’s memorial service will take place today.
Well played, Neil.

Well played.

PROMPT: Enjoy tonight’s blue moon – there won’t be another until 2015. Meanwhile, write about rare things today.
And to recover from your shock and disappointment in the moon’s lack of hue, you can think of the pink pigeon instead. Yes, Dear Reader, they really are pink in color. And with a world population that is not necessarily “in the pink” (only 300 or so), they are very rare birds indeed.
