Hello old friend.



This is the constellation, or I should say asterism that started it all.

Taking the dog for a walk my uncle and I couldn't help but notice the starry skies. I must have been about eight years old.

My uncle pointed out the Plough and I was hooked.

It was mid winter and Orion was the next to be netted. Followed by the bright twinkling star Sirius.

All the constellations hold precious memories for me, the Plough though is at the top of the list.

The Full Mackerel Moon will be upon us on Monday,  nearby I can hear a dog practicing its lunar howling! Up above, the slow moving clouds...
