Goodbye November and Happy Birthday!

As November turns her page
and becomes December,
we are treated to a gift
from Mother Nature tonight.
A "Full Beaver" Moon.
Named by Native Americans
in the eastern and northern US,
each month carries a moon name.
The Full Beaver Moon
was a reminder to set beaver traps now,
before the swamps froze,
to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
Maybe a great day
to purchase some fanciful UGGS,
or better yet...FRYES!!

We also honor a Birthday today.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens.
His quote reads:
"Everyone is a moon,
and has a dark side
which he never
shows to anybody."
Born in 1835, his pen name
is Mark Twain.
So, I hope you
enjoy the Moon,
and Happy Birthday to Mark Twain.
P.S. One more thing...
