Sliver moon left. Procyon middle right. Alhena upper right. Sirius far right.
This rose is a great representation of aging.
How are you doing?
Toxic liver, bad kidneys
Mr. Happy’s sad
Sirius is the bright star in the center third of the photo below Orian’s Belt.
A closer view. I don’t know what was making the streak to the left of Orian’s Belt. It changed position slightly from the first shot.
Jupiter is in the lower right at the treeline.
Mars, The Pleiades, and Uranus are aligned.

Beautiful pictures Tim 🤗
Thanks, Gabriela. Did you like the Timku?
My pleasure. Very much Tim. I love your writings.
Aw! Thanks. I appreciate that.
Great Sky Shots, including the sliver moon, one of our favorites. ( Maj sez: Somehow the rose looks like I feel tonight. Been a strenuous past couple of days.)
I shoveled a tonne of dirt and gravel into the bed of my pickup truck and shoveled it all back out into holes in the culvert that was washing out again. I really feel like that rose tonight. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Awesome photos, and poem, Tim. The flowers, though aged and a bit sad, are still beautiful.
I’m feeling a little rose-bedraggled right about now myself. I love all of these skyscapes, but the first one is my favorite.
It seems a lot of people are feeling that way by the end of the week. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Your Timku has me worried…
Your sliver moon had me going outside my friend’s house (where I am staying until Oct. 11) to see just where the moon is. Couldn’t find it.
It’s up in the morning. Tomorrow morning will be a very sliver, but maybe up too late to see. Sunday is the new moon. Not to worry. The poem is general. Not personal. Thanks, Dale.
I shall hope to see it. It’s been rather dreary here the past 3-4 days.
Oh good. Just making sure!!
I get a lot of junk mail about toxic liver, men’s heath (boner tips and tricks), and notices that I’ve been accepted into the Who’s Who of Professional Women. Spam is so weird. I couldn’t fit the WWPW into the Timku. I’d have to do a Truck poem (Tanka) or is in Tonka?
Hahaha!! I love that you were inspired by spam!
Don’t ask me… But we don’t do labels, right?
They mislable on purpose. All “men’s health” is about is getting Mr. Happy to stand up again.The only reason I can think of for getting WWPW spam mail is because I order clothes for Laurie.
This is true. And it is SO annoying to be automatically spammed, the moment you order something on line. I keep forgetting to go incognito when I do so…
Streak of light, maybe ISS or a plane. Probably the latter.
Sounds like a bit flash flooding down your way. Thursday was rainy all day, but not the heavy kind. It was more cold than anything, mid-40s all day. Today, a different story … sunny and 86, real feel 92.
It was warm while I was shoveling dirt and gravel into holes in the culvert. About 10 minutes after I finished, a thunderstorm blew through and we had heavy rain and sunshine at the same time. One of those silly NM phenomenons. Cooled down nicely. Thanks, David.
Haven’t had rain and sunshine at the same time for a long time, maybe five years.
I’m getting the same type of junk mail that you’ve been getting. Also, have had spam regarding concealed carry, stun guns, and several from Sarrah looking for intimate male companionship. She’s going to have to look elsewhere.
It’s been a long time since we got much rain in general. I get a lot of spam for Russian and now Ukrainian women. I get spam mail about where one can buy illegal weapons, which I half suspect are generated by the ATF or other Justice Department cronies trying to entrap people who don’t know gun laws.
I hope we all age in beauty like that rose 🙂
Interesting shots op the stars and planets. Indeed something strange that was moving there… maybe aliens on there return ha ha ha 🙂
We have lots of aliens out here. Thanks, Rudi.
Mr Happy, better be Happy! I just read your reply to Dale, so I’m not worrying! 😉
That rose is aging beautifully.
Sliver Moon rises smiling.
Visitors form outer space or a lazy shooting star?
As long as Mr. Happy can stand up on his own he’s happy. Visitors most likely. Thanks, Marina.
Wonderful photos and poem, Tim. Thanks for reminding me about the new moon too. Hugs on the wing.
I love sliver moons. I’ve never seen on like this before though so thank you. Ot’s amazing
The moons been in a smiling postion the last several mornings. Thanks, Shey.
Beautiful night sky pictures. I enjoyed the one picture that it looked like the night sky had glowing rings.
And the rose is what I feel like after a day working in the yard. Neat Timku!
The dawn and night sky photos are beautiful, Tim. I can even see a well defined “moon-eye” in the first one. The streak is interesting. I guess it moved too slowly and was not a meteor?
I hope you are alright. A good Timku, but I hope it does not indicate the state of your own health.
Probably a jet on the streak. The Timku applies to all and none.
I love roses, Timothy, but I think they look like matrons in full skirts when they are getting a bit old.
I’ve never thought of it like that. Good observation. Thanks, Robbie.
The aging rose really demonstrates that there is still beauty and delicacy and intriguing intricacy even as time changes and ravages the trappings of youth.
My Grandmother is almost 100 and her skin and her hands are likewise delicate and soft as is her manner now.
Maybe the eye that can see the beauty of age is the rarity.
This had me nodding and smiling and laughing and such a wonderful reminder Tim❣️🥰
LOL! The Timku is perfect under the wilting rose.
Whose tree is forefront in the first shot?
I’m always concerned about the trees.
That’s the top of your tree. Thanks, Resa.
Yay…I knew it! Might grab it!
Wow, I am waaaaaaayyy behind on your posts. Probably blasting your inbox tonight ha. Let’s hope I can see that many starts this weekend – although with the 32 degree lows I’ll have to look at them through my breath.
They will be breath taking in the cold. Thanks, Brian.
