So, Dad's new telescope has prompted him to make some "home adjustments" which in turn are getting me in some strife with Mother Dearest! According to her, who called to moan at me for even getting him into the hobby, Dad is now trying to build a huge deck and "shed" out in the back garden and has indicated some of the trees need to go due to "unsafe conditions". I gotta hand it to the guy, he's pretty inventive. So I am in Mother Dearest's bad books because her whole house is going to be transformed all because of the purchase of a new telescope.
Glad I live 9,000 miles away!!
