Hello, and welcome to my first discussion of 2018

Featuring my first moon-shot of 2018. It isn't real crisp, but it is too dad-blasted cold outside (-3 F/-19 C) so I shot it through the front window. Did you know that in real life I was named after Elvis Aaron Presley? True story. I was also named after Richard M. Nixon. And millions of other people. Since they were born first, they were named first, so I was named after them. Funny how that works.

JJ, you were named after me. And I was named after Patsie. Happy New Year! I was also named after Lucy and she was named after The Beatles song Lucy in the sky with diamonds

@JolietJake I canĀ“t help thinking that if I had been his mother, I would have spanked him often until he learned.

I was named after the queen who was beheaded. I don't know what my father was thinking back then when he first saw me.

That's a really good shot. When we walked outside last night to go out for supper, I saw that big beautiful moon shining down on us and I was hoping that you'd get a really good shot of it to share. Guess I hoped right! Happy 2018 I wish you health and prosperity, and a little for the Scar too.

Curse that tree still blocking your view. And I was just about to say that I was named after a singer too, before I realised the trick

Your first discussion sounds quite funny. I'm made to believe that I was named after and before other billions of people.

@JolietJake Yes it is. We usually only have 'maybe' a week of this kinda cold at the end of January or start of February; so having it now is weird.
