Happy Leap Day

The orbit around the sun is about 365 days - just a smidge over.  So every 4th year we get an extra day, to keep pace with our place in the solar orbit in the right place.  Enjoy your extra day this year.  Find your place in the sun.

  1. It is a capitalist conspiracy to make people work an extra day every four years.

    1. Fooled them this year, it falls on a weekend (yes, I know there is a flaw in the logic on that, but most people won't catch the flaw - another capitalist trick!)

    1. An inlet on Lake Erie - last summer, I think . . . could be Florida or Kentucky

  3. So great to see you enjoying the sun. I had to do a double-take. Thought that anchor in lights in the background was something else entirely.

    1. That would be an entirely different kind of marine experience.

  5. You're so adorable when you give us the bird! I didn't notice the anchor until I read Scoot's comment. Now I'm strangely drawn to it.

    1. Nice at first, but the novelty wears off fast for me.

  8. I thought my calendar was broken with February 29, even worse is tomorrow and Monday being the 30th and 31st.

    1. Hide for a couple of weeks, and then the calendar will seem normal again. Also Daylight savings time is kicking in, just and extra way to mess with our brains.

  9. I actually spent the day doing pleasant things - no chores! no work!
    I hope to repeat this in another four years.
