Secret Identity

PHOTO PROMPT © Douglas M. MacIlroy

Wow!  Cool beam weapon!  Is this part of the Planetary Defense?

Kid has some imagination… No, it’s just a telescope.  We use it to observe the cosmos.

Oh, I get it, secret identity and all.  Turned one way and it gathers light and lets you see billions of light years, turned the other and it concentrates the light into a super beam. You can both see them coming and shoot them down.

I’m sorry, this is purely scientific.

Right.  Your secret is safe with me.


Command?  Identity of Planetary Defense Weapon Six on Keck has been compromised.  Please advise.

It has been months sine I joined FF! I took a short break, and the short break seemed to stretch on and on… Not sure how easy it will be to visit everyone, but I will try….

    I like it. I heard on the news last night that a Kayaker had been lost of the coast of the Cape, and I said a prayer that it wasn’t you. Also prayers for that family. So, I’m really glad that you checked in this week. I’ve missed your writing. Leave it to a child to see past the facade… Love it!
