Eclipse...

...Ginger and Freddie are ready... with quite stylish eclipse-ready eye-wear (yes, ISO Certified, per the rigorous test procedures of  HTLI (Huey Testing Laboratories Internationale))... Hope y'all are ready as well, and hope those within the 'band' or whatever enjoy clear skies and SAFE viewing!!! I am quite a bit gun-shy about viewing directly, no matter the apparatus available, two eye surgeries later...so I'll just catch up on social media (...I DO hope SOMEBODY videos it. and then posts it...  :-)  ).
Miss Fortune is also going to check out the phenomenon... with the same Huey-approved specs, of course... it's another title for Huey - Miss Rogers' Protective Eye-wear Technician (PET)... um... yep, I am VERY happy being Miss Rogers' PET... ;-)

KIG, y'all!!!
