Full Moon

DeBary, FL

55 deg. partly cloudy, no wind.

partlycloudyPartly cloudy. Patchy fog early in the morning. Highs in the upper 70s. South winds 5 to 10 mph.

I wasn't paying much attention to the moon, but after CLT came back from taking Jim and Linda, first to Wally World and then to the Mall, that I started thinking about the phase of the moon.

You see, CLT said that some of the people driving their cars were really doing some stupid things. He said that people were pulling out in front of others, making turns out of the improper lanes, driving too fast and in general driving like they weren't paying attention at all!!

Now, if you ask the "experts", they say that the moon doesn't have a thing to do with how people act.

Well, I disagree!!!!

I have personally seen a difference of how people drive and do things when there is a full moon. Jim says that when he worked in a retail store many years ago, you didn't have to have a calendar or look at the moon to know when there was a full moon.

You just had to deal with crazy acting customers!!

I once knew a lady who worked in a mental hospital and she said that the patients there really had problems when the moon was full.

Now, maybe the "experts" don't agree, but from experience and listening to what other RVs and their owners say, I think they may want to do another study on the subject.

How about it? Can you tell when there's a full moon without looking at the calendar or looking up at the moon?

Did you know that the Farmers' Almanac defined blue moon as an extra full moon that occurred in a season; one season was normally three full moons. If a season had four full moons, then the third full moon was named a blue moon.


  1. I'm not sure about all that Emry - I mean, just because my fangs come out and I grow lots of hair around my muzzle when there's a full moon doesn't necessarily mean that the moon has anything to do with it!! My wife brought me in on a lease when my howling annoyed the neighbors, but again, I'm not sure the moon had anything to do with it!!!

  2. The So-Called experts have been challenged on that theory for years.

    I also heard the same thing about people in hospitals not just mental wards having problems with all kinds of things.

    Both Kathy and I Have problems sleeping when there is a full moon out.

    It's about time.

  3. I agree that people act different when there is a full moon, but then again isn't there a full moon somewhere in the world at any time? or maybe I'm wrong. Oh well, we always look for reasons why people act the way they do.
