"Lunar Eclipse Of The Heart"

Okay, so the song is actually called Total Eclipse Of The Heart, but I thought this title fit better :) We had a Lunar Eclipse tonight & I tried my hardest to get some good pictures of it, but for some reason, my zoon lens didn't want to cooperate with me :( I have no clue why.....it just wouldn't let me zoom in on the moon without making it all blurry. I don't think it got dropped or anything....Jim said he didn't even use it when he went to the Winter Blast in Detroit, but I'm wondering if the cold temperatures may have messed something up. Any good camera experts out there that would know?
Anyway, here are 2 of the shots that I was able to capture tonight. I didn't stay outside long through because it's FREEZING out there!

Tonight at bowling, I thought I was finally going to shot a 600 series for the first time this season. I started out with a 190 game, then a 232 for my second game & well, let's just say, I blew it :( I don't even want to tell you what my third game was, but I ended up with a 544 series, so you do the math. I was so depressed afterwards.....bowling can be such a mental game if you let it & well, that's exactly what I did! I'm going to start getting some lessons hopefully in a few weeks to try to figure out what I'm doing wrong this season. Last year, my average was 175.....this year, I'm barely holding onto a 169! Talk about depressing!

But on a more positive note, our team is in first place & has been for the past 3 weeks now :) We only have 6 weeks left of this league, so I'm hoping we can stay up there & possibly even win the league.....that would be awesome since this is our first year on this league!

Well, I'm off to bed.....I have a busy day ahead of me as I'm going to go get a perm tomorrow. I like the new haircut I got, but it's been such a pain to style & takes even longer than it did with a perm! So, back to curly hair I go :)
Til next time,
Benita

Great pics! My DH & I went out a little after 10 to take a peak. I didn't even try to photograph it. The clouds were moving through pretty good and there's too much city light. But it was fun to see. :)

WTG on the bowling! I can't bowl worth a hoot. More gutter balls than anything else. LOL

Great job with the bowling!
