Cool The future's so bright

I gotta wear 😎!
(Or, better yet, safety glasses!)

It's a great time to practice, so when Y2038 shows up, we'll be ready.

But seriously... Lucky for me, I live in the eclipse's path. The Midwest US (or, many counties, cities, and villages) will be having lots of parties, the kids will be out of school for the day, and many adults will be annoyed at the whole thing.

I have an older cell phone. I don't use it as a phone, but I can take videos. If I don't get safety goggles, I can still watch (and record) the eclipse.

Other thoughts?

I was in the path of totality in 2017. This time I'm about 60+ miles outside of it here in W. Ky. I haven't decided if I'll drive into Ill. to see it again or settle for a 'partial' view.

It's going to miss us, but, when I was in college, my girlfriend and I got to see a not-quite-total eclipse of the sun from the sunken gardens at the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, Va. It was half a century ago, but neither of us have ever forgotten that experience.

I drove to the first "totality zone," and in a few days I'll drive to the second. But it might be raining. Oh well. I'm still going to enjoy my visit to "Hot Springs, Arkansas."
