Once in a Blue Moon

By: Knowlton Pringle
Book Title: Drizzled with Death
Series: The Sugar Grove Mysteries, Book 1

Tonight marks the third supermoon of 2013. Here in Sugar Grove, NH we call it the Buck Moon or sometimes the Hay Moon. Whatever you call it, it's gonna big big. The forecast is for clear skies tonight here too so it will be even easier to see. 

Since taxidermy is my passion, I spend a lot of time I spend a lot of time at night out roaming the edges of the roads looking for poor unfortunate creatures to stuff. A full moon makes it easier to see my way around as I go on my collecting missions. 

Again and again I've invited the girl of my dreams,local sugar maker, Dani Greene, to go out wandering through the woods at night with me. I can't understand why but she always refuses. She says there's nothing romantic about filling a knapsack with dead squirrels. But I'm hopeful that tonight will be the night she finally says yes. Sure, she refuse last month when the biggest supermoon of the year occurred but this time I've even planned a full moon picnic. Dani loves to eat so I think I may actually convince her to go. And if I don't, there's always next month. After all even the unexpected occurs once in a Blue Moon.

Do you have plans to for the supermoon?

  1. This would be a good night to do a little matchmaking with a friend of Willow's and a friend of mine who need to notice each other. Maybe we'll "accidentally" meet at the ice cream stand and go for a walk on the beach. Phoning Willow now...

  2. Not sure what I'm doing, but I'm sure not hunting for dead animals! :-)

  3. Use a flashlight another night to find road kill and maybe you will find a partner for that picnic

  4. Knowlton, are you sure you're being romantic about this? I mean, um, some girls would prefer to go to dinner or maybe a movie. Perhaps finding dead squirrels should be moved to a later moment in your romantic quest, when Dani knows you better. How about taking her out for something sweet? Coffee and a piece of maple-laced pie, perhaps?

    From Jenna Hart in Crystal Cove...who is learning how to date again. It's not easy.

  5. Lol I noticed the full moon last night. But I agree with Jenna and Susie, there is nothing romantic about dead animals. You really should do this one your own, and ask Dani out for something else.
