    1. Thanks, Andy. It was fun. We went to my mother-in-law’s house and ate lunch in her driveway while sharing a pair of eclipse glasses. Good food, good company, and cool viewings. It was a great time. 🙂

    1. I had a dark filter on my lens, then my husband held the glasses up to the lens and covered the exposed parts of the lens with his fingers. I was able to position the camera and manually focus it. It was quite the production. 🙂

      1. That is so cool. Laughing, i can picture the scene from your description. Sounds like your cooperative venture was fun — plus you got some cool pics

    1. There’s always 2024 in Texas (I hear). Or the next full one is in 28 years. I’ll be 79, but I hope I’ll be able to see it. Our moms are 85 and 84 and they both watched today. 🙂

      1. That’s great. I have a 92 year old pt that saw one in the ’30’s and got to see this one today. Pretty cool. I heard the next will track in the opposite direction, and Indy will be in the path. That’s only about two hours north of us. May have to go up for that one. 😃
