Moonlight, Feels Right

It is normally difficult keeping track of my little black dogs when talking them out hiking at night, but with a full moon and lots of snow on the ground I get to see all their antics.

    Just thought of Bobcat Goldthwait in one of the Police Academy movies and a scene with police dogs at night with flashlights hanging from their collars. 🙂

    Stapleton used to have the same problem with the Hound of the Baskervilles. After dark he kept losing the black beast in the bog. Then he figured out the blazing phosphorus eyes trick and no Baskerville ever missed the hellhound again as it chased him through the night.

      LOL! Yes, good trick! I used to have a wonderful Black Labrador Retriever — also very easy to lose at night. On Halloween I would take a cyalume stick, activate it, cut the stick open and pour the glowing liquid over the dog’s back, then turn her loose in the darkened front yard. She was the most gentle of all dogs, but at least on Halloween she would inspire fright in all the young children going door to door.

      N.B. Cyalume liquid is non-toxic, but do not get it in your eyes; it stings! How do I know? Well, the dog was having so much fun that I decided that I would… Uh, never mind.

    I just got back from a late moonlight hike. There wasn’t any snow because I’m off the mountain, but yes, it’s awesome.

    By the way, for anyone interested in going walk-about at night, you may wish to read about “nightwalking”. http://www.navaching.com/hawkeen/nwalk.html Even if you disregard some of the more “New Age” speculations, the ideas presented are very intriguing.

    I used to cave with a blind caver who had the habit of disappearing down passageways before the rest of us got there. We ended up tying a cyalume stick to him to keep the rest of us from having a heart attack.

    The guy was incredible. He lead me off a mountain, straight to the car in the middle of the night in a storm. He also taught math at Harvard despite going blind at age two. I wish those who knew him better would write a book about the guy, he was incredible.
