I hope we aren't clouded/fogged in here.
not yet, we preceded that event! I do recall having to hustle to school so the dinosaurs wouldn't pick me off though!Did you guys have dirt back then?
Just outside. Mom kept the floor of the cave pretty clean; she kept on Dad about making something to help with that, but he & his buddies were preoccupied with trying to make fire . . .Did you guys have dirt back then?
Since I was born in '49 I guess you might say that I was in the research and development stage when the last one occurred.I was around here in 1948.
Uncle Stumpy finally figured it out, so the the duty fell to him.Your Dad knew how to light a fire Jim? No wonder you still have all your fingers!
I made the mirror and built a 8 inch telescope when I was fourteen.One thing though-assuming we aren't under some serious cloud cover-is to use a moon filter on your scopes. I used to have an 8-inch scope which I decided to test out on the full moon right after I unboxed the thing. But not being used to the upside down backwards movement, I made the mistake of going from dark night sky to full moon in one quick motion. that was the end of my night vision for about a week..........
