Way cool!

I'm a sucker for things that change color, glow in the dark, etc. I can't resist a coffee mug that reveals a new scene when hot liquids are poured in, t-shirts that change color when exposed to light or the temperature changes, I have a glow-in-the-dark fidget spinner and glow-in-the-dark Silly Putty. So after my cat n mouse adventure this morning I had to go to the post office. They had new stamps there marking the solar eclipse coming up in August.



Pretty darn boring, huh? Put your thumb on one of the black circles....


It turns into the Moon. How cool is that?

Pre-ordered mine. I am hoping to get a couple decent pics and have post cards made. I then plan to send them to my kids and family with an Eclipse stamp.

My wife and daughter are flying to visit my mother-in-law on the day of the eclipse.
They should be airborne when it takes place. I wonder if they will even notice?

I live 11 miles from the line of total eclipse. Based on hotel, campground and B&B reservations and car rentals we expect complete traffic gridlock, swamped cell service, empty store shelves and generalized apocalyptic madness.

A little glow in the dark will be good. .

My wife picked some up, too.

We're planning to drive to see the eclipse. I have this wary feeling that we're going to be stuck in totally blocked traffic.

My family was waiting at JFK for their flight which departed just after the peak here in New York City.
My wife said they saw nothing. I went to sleep after dropping them off and woke up after it was over.

My company had an Eclipse party. Set up the barbeque grills on the garage roof and waited until dark - listening to the Cicadas come to life for 2 minutes was the most noteworthy part of the whole deal.
