Watermelon in winter

We’ve been getting some stellar sunrises and sunsets lately. No wonder the mountains are called the Sandias.

      And it just ain’t a solstice without you-know-who …

      (Tempting fate posting this … the Network has been quite aggressive taking down NX clips as fast as they get posted. So, shhhhhhh, gotta keep it on the downlow.)

      • SAO' Says:

        Completely unconfirmed rumor, but heard the reason you can’t stream NX is that the soundtrack was too good. Each episode had 5-6 carefully selected songs, usually just a few bars to set a tone but occasionally a full chorus and refrain. So the licensing fees outweigh what they can make renting it out to Netflix. Apparently Ed, the comedy about the lawyer who worked out of a bowling alley, is in the same boat.

        We have all six seasons on DVD. That’s one we should maybe binge-watch again. We’re in the last season of “Breaking Bad” right now.

        I loved it when Barry Corbin (Maurice) popped up as an irascible property owner in “Better Call Saul.” He still has it goin’ on.

          I forget but I think I still have some episodes of Northern Exposure on a VHS tape. I think the commercials are still in there as well. (Remember when you had to press stop and play when you were taping to cut out the commercials?). I even have an old VHS tape player around. (Every day it’s increasing in price! Within a few years it be worth as much as a boat anchor).

      Yeah, that should be cool. We might have to move around a bit in the ’hood to catch that one; we have some pretty strong architectural interference to the SSW. These people and their second stories. Sheesh.

      We have a great view from the back yard. I have been watching the two planets close on each other. Tonight was cloudy but I plan on pulling out the telescope tomorrow.

    We have seen more contrails here; they have few and far between for months. Maybe these airliners are carrying vaccine instead of people.

      Could be military traffic here. The Sunport is supposed to be a ghost town. With civilian flights in the dumper maybe they’ll finally have the time to get all their construction projects finished.
