    Tomorrow May 31st we will have a rare celestial occurrence... a Blue Moon!

    For us Earthbound folks we see a full moon every 29 1/2 days.(We see the moon as being a FULL moon when it is opposite the sun in the sky.) A BLUE Moon is when we are treated to 2 Full Moons in the same month.

    A Blue Moon happens approximately every 32 months. So you can see that it isn't something that we see all the time. Hence the saying, "Once in a Blue Moon."

    A Blue Moon is a rare treat. So what could be more rare? How being treated to not one, but two Blue Moons in the same year!!! And just 2 months apart!! (The last one was in January.)

    I am certainly not one to be superstitious and certainly will not change any of my normal routines as a result of this 2nd Blue Moon, but...
    ... one thing is for sure....
    You can bet your butt I will be out fishing tomorrow night.

    (just imagine the fishing story fodder if I was to catch me a whopper!)

    I hope you all get out there and fish tomorrow and if you DO catch that big one, please make a post here!

    I wonder if the fishing will be better then?
    Thanks for the info Tony!
    I think I may try to go tomorrow evening/night if my back/neck will let me. I've been in bed pretty much for 2 1/2 days because of severe neck/headache pain. At times I couldn't even get out of bed for 2-5 mins at a time. Its a lil better today but I got some muscle relaxers to help.I can't get into see my doctor till next week...:sad2::angry:
    Oh well,Let me know what you think!

    THIS IS A TEST HOPE.

    Which version of the song are you quoting? The original or the MARCELLS version.Answering correctly may reveal you age, hence the warning, you being a woman and all I didnt want you to be the first female to ever reveal her true age.!!!!!!!:lol::smile2::tounge_out::cool2::wink:

    I didn't make it out today or this evening...I'm going about 5ish am in the morning and try my luck out.
    My neighbor helped me get about 5-6 dozen big crawlers....Catch some bait and maybe channels or flatties or a 20-30lb drum. Just something nice I hope!!!
