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.

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!
