Tonight is the Full Moon, up there glimmering away for our benefit. Sometimes the affect of the moon can be startling, so you Readers may want to batten down the hatches and get a dose of sarsparilla before sunset. Going bananas has limited charm.
Tonight’s is a unique moon because there will be an eclipse. We are not astronomically qualified to explain it; ask Google. However, don’t get your hopes up too high, as these celestial mysteries only work if you can see the moon. Put in your bid for fair skies right away.
This is the “Beaver Moon”; We don’t know why. We think of them all as Rhino Moons. Probably Aardvarks have a similar policy.
It’s surprising when We Rhinos are informed that We are not to everyone’s taste. There are those who have reservations about how astounding We are, oddly enough. Understandably, it is difficult for Us to adjust ourselves to please strangers.
This blog is designed to inform our Readers, especially those who are confused about what Rhinos have to offer. It is a lot to absorb, but hey! We’re trying.
A few years of reading this stuff will surely recalibrate perception. We assume that should do the trick. We do hope so.
Just so you remain aware, there are little globules of scent, gusting or wafting by all the time. They play in concert with one another, enhancing perception this way and that. Rhinos communicate primarily through scent, and also sound.
Many potential thrills available each time We inhale. Which Rhinos do, all the time. We not only sniff them, but taste them with our gums.
Scent globules are invisible, but our Staff did not know how to illustrate that. In our pictures, We put dotsies instead.
These lyrics are from ’The Codfish Ball’ by Lew Pollack and Sidney Mitchell, written for the 1936 20th Century-Fox film, “Captain January”. It starred Shirley Temple, supported by Buddy Ebsen. To see a nifty film clip, look it up on YouTube or on Google.
Further lyrics go:
Lobsters dancing in a row, Shuffle off to Buffalo, Jelly fish sway to and fro, at the Codfish Ball, etc.
