Bob was very excited about my Christmas present... he doesn't usually get one until mid-December (or the day before Christmas ) but he told me he saw this ad and couldn't resist...
A few days later, a giant box came from Kohl's. I was puzzled. What could get BOB so excited from KOHL'S? I spent the day circling the box, wondering what it could be.
It took Bob five minutes to talk me into opening my present... I couldn't believe it! It is a TELESCOPE! A very big telescope!
I did warn him that my Dad got me a telescope when I was a child, but I wasn't able to see any more in the night sky than I could just looking out into the vast darkness (I could count 12-20 stars back then). Even so, I have always wanted a bigger telescope (but never, ever dreamed that I'd get one!). Bob has assured me that I should be able to see more with this one, but I should rest assured that even if I can't see more that he's still happy to make an unexpressed dream come true!
The last two nights have been cloudy... we'll see if the weekend will be clear to check it out.
