Super moon and Saturday night was so much fun

What was proposed as a quiet evening of dinner
and cards turned into a wonderful night of lively
discussion with my friend Josephine and her
friends for a little impromptu party in celebration
of a very large moon tonight.  Apparently the moon
is the closest it's been to the earth in 18 years.

Every topic you should never discuss was
talked about with great excitement around a
dining room table covered with lovely china
and delicious food.  So much fun.  Religion,
politics, the environment, the world, all
came into focus and were loudly debated.
Then the group parted laughing into the night
under a super moon.

Have an-enjoying-a-great-group-of-people day.

Your painting of last night's moon is beautiful.

Thanks for being part of the celebration.

Hi Karen,

It sure was fun. I hope you got to see that big moon.

It was amazing.

Hi Josephine,

Thank you so much. I had a great time, and I know your other friends did too.

Hi Nicki,

It's true that impromptu fun is great, and I'd be delighted if you dropped through T.O. for some. There was a song about Saskatoon on CBC last night.

Love your paintings of spring melt water in fields. Magical.

Sounds like a lovely time Barbara. I didn't get a real good look at the super moon, but i did notice how bright the moonlight was shining in my room the other night! oh dear, i just figured out the next time I will be able to get a good look at it, I will be 72 years old!! eeegad, i hope i'm still painting and blogging!

I am over the moon in love with this little one, Barbara!

Hi Sally,

It was impressive -- very large and glorious. But the harvest moon is the same, and you can see that well where you live in the country.

I'm sure you'll still be painting 72 years from now, and blogging unless something more amazing comes along between now and then.

Hi Linny,

Thanks so much. I'm delighted that you like it. I'm sure the moon was spectacular in Victoria.
