LOVE the photos!! It's the next best thing to being there. Sigh.

Had a chuckle at Scotty's t-shirt. He's one of the best barbeque cooks ever.

Had a great day yesterday with two astronomy outreach events in Texas, but sure wish I could have gone to OH to be with all of you. Although it was fun sharing views with my scopes, at several points during the night I was wishing I was set up beside all of you, swapping views and good laughs.

Oh you liar. We could find things. We just didn't have enough scopes 'cause of the chickens who packed up early!

Man, i missed it AGAIN this year. I was running my youngest around all weekend (that would be Jessica, who i brought out about 5 years ago - she's 17 now) and had plans with friends who were in town.

I was thinking about you all on friday night as i looked up and saw some of the best skies in some time.

Glad you all had fun. Maybe next year (i can't believe it's been a year since i posted the last similar excuse)!

I survived the shooting! Er, wait, that sounded wrong. Really, it was a lot of fun, I'd never shot a gun or rifle of any kind before. I shot a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol, and didn't do too horribly badly. Some photos of us to come besides the one above, perhaps , but in the meantime, here's a few others that were resized and ready to go...

From last night, Diane leaning back against John, talking to Scott...

This would be more impressive if y'all could see the proportions. This chair was way big.

And this, children, is what happens when you run into the tree stump in the dark. You know, the one you *think* you're avoiding but you're not. Yeah. Fun.

Once again, another awesome BEOTS. I'm glad I was able to pop in there on Friday night. Many thanks to Diane and Scott for hosting it, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Clear Skies,
Phil
