Well now, the last panel describes my reaction to seeing the Pleiades last night through my new 10x50s. Sheer terror.
I'm going to step off the LEM now... here we are, Pismo Beach and all the clams we can eat

This also reminds me of an old Irish saying:
An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold onto a blade of grass and not fall off the earth.
How many Irish does it take to replace a light bulb?
Three. One to hold the bulb and two to drink till the room spins.

You started it. I wrote a paper on Irish poets.

One of them wrote, "We are all in the gutter. Some of us see the gutter. Some of us see the stars."

"Don't look down" is good advice. I looked down a few times. It turned me into mail box girl.

Ireland may be up there somewhere. In fact, I am sure it is. I let go once. I landed in Ireland. It is a lovely place. I kept falling. Some of the Irish drop offs are steep.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
