Not the Moon

You could bray at it, but you'd be barking up the wrong Christmas tree.

Three guesses.

Never mind. You can have all the guesses you want. You'll probably get it on the first try anyway.

I have one of those!!!. Costco had those nightlights are like light blue discs that come on when it gets dark... Petrea, your imagination is way out there!. Love it.

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh, Kalei, it's not a night light. However, you've tempted me to go to Costco and get one.

Kalei's Best Friend said...

It sure has the same shape and color as mine...lol
btw, its one night light I have had for a zillion years... its flush to the wall.. I don't think costco has it any more :-(

Petrea Burchard said...

Let me know if you see it again. I want one!

Kalei's Best Friend said...

Will do... I was going thru my pantry trying to see if I had an extra one... I think I bought that one about 15 years ago!!... lol came in a pack of 6...damn, should of stocked up on it..

alex said...

reminds me of that show they have at Griffith Observatory.

Kalei's Best Friend said...

Petrea Burchard said...

Do they still have the laser show, Alex?

That's cute, Kalei. I like the round light.

Michael Coppess said...

This is supposed to be easy? Looks like the moon to me.

Susan said...

The green on a traffic signal light at night? (with dark background photographed to look pitch black)

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh jeez, I thought this would be easy.

Susan said...

Or maybe it's an extreme close-up of an isolated globe Christmas tree light?

Kalei's Best Friend said...

heck, I THOUGHT it was easy.. Sure my answer isn't right??? LOL

TheChieftess said...

You've stumped me on this one Petrea!!!

Pasadena Adjacent said...

once in a blue moon - wasn't it predicted to be orange?

dive said...

Something round and glowy … Is it some kind of Christmas tree decoration, Petrea? I honestly have no idea, but it is strangely attractive. I wonder if I'll still want one when you tell us what it is.

Susan Campisi said...

Is this Zen Thursday? I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this isn't easy. Perhaps a Pasadena street light?

Steven said...

Looks like Boz took a bite out of a Christmas tree ornament. The photo does have a nice Zen look to it.

Margaret said...

Please tell me it's not gallstone.

WV: Pitions, as in pition those of use who have no idea what it is.

Petrea Burchard said...

Okay, Margaret, it's not a gallstone.

Susan (the first Susan here) got it and Dive got it, too--it's a Christmas tree light, part of string of outdoor lights like any others, except they're round. I took a few close-ups and was surprised how much this one looked like the moon. The black behind it is the bush it's hanging on, the black brushes in front are evergreen branches.

Petrea Burchard said...

And to the person who deleted her comment: I thought it was funny!

Kalei's Best Friend said...

do u have one of those round windows?? and if so, is that the blue sky coming thru it??? this is my second guess!.

Bellis said...

Fooled me, I believed it was the moon. Good one!

John Sandel said...

Zen-Every-Frickin-Day!

John Sandel said...

BTW, I looked it up in the Blue-Haired Encyclop├Ždia … a pition is the fundamental atomic unit of liberal guilt.

wv: unfumme: what a liberal (like me) would find this, during dinner.

Ms M said...

This looks like a blue moon with the profile of a pointy-nosed face on the edge of it. Could be a book cover for a Halloween story.

Or it could be a big blue button on the side of a very dark building. I wonder who or what comes out if you push the button??

Petrea Burchard said...

Maybe it's the counterpart to this week's Zen Monday, Ms. M. If we push it, someone scary will "buzz us in."

Trish said...

dayum, *I* knew what it was...wth people?!?!

other than THE Parade, it's one of the icons of Pasadena.

sheesh!

I'd have rung in sooner, but been taking care of an ill friend and online time has been scare...if I'd only have known you all needed help!

wv: unold...no, really, like, young?

Karen said...

I didn't know what it was, but somehow it reminded me of this. Which seems appropriate for the Winter Solstice somehow.

Trish said...

my lack of sleep showed---lost a "c" in translation...sigh.

I think I'm going to bed now!

wv: rhing...if I hear another discriminatory Salvation Army bell rhing at me I'm going to find a new place for their bell
