Full Moon Adventure

Posted: November 29, 2012 by Mo Crow in magic

I woke up with the Full Moon beckoning out my window, ran downstairs & grabbed the camera to take this shot but when I was out at the back gate I heard the kitchen door slam… I was locked out in my birthday suit in the middle of the night! Old Man Crow was sound asleep and not easily woken by my knocking politely on the door so I grabbed a very tiny towel which was hanging on the fence, got the ladder out of the shed, climbed up on the roof and tapped on our bedroom window… I am so very glad he woke up, just had to share now it’s time to get more sleep!

    Oh, Mo, that’s a great story! I wonder if any of the neighbours saw you. Probably not, or the police probably would have visited by now. 4am here and I can’t sleep. Maybe I should pop out to look at the moon.

      Hi Carol I always get up at this time & phew!!! the neighbours didn’t notice, thank goodness! It was almost a nightmare but at this stage of the game it just made me laugh & brought me to my senses re what really matters! I had been lusting after a fabulous French coat but after finding out how much it cost via a friend who is fluent in French & finding out what it feels like to be caught out naked I really don’t need it!

    Mo, you are a scream…..what a great way to wake up…for me that is..a real chuckle.! Reminded me of a time when we stayed overnight in a place that we were cleaning up to move into to in Prahran & I went to the outside loo and same thing, door clicked shut & I couldn’t get in. My future flatmate was asleep in the front room & couldn’t be woken. There had to be another way but that meant climbing over a fence, down a laneway,up another side street & back into our street . Thankfully I wasn’t naked but I only had a short summer dressing gown on & not much else.
    Like you tho, I don’t think anyone saw me but after that I always placed something between the door & the door jamb….wasn’t funny at the time but your story bought it all back. Thank you for the memory…& the moon looks wonderful.

      I noticed the wind was up as i was heading for the back gate and the thought did pass through my moonstruck brain that I hadn’t snipped the lock or put the brick in front of the door, it was an er… ummm… let’s say an interesting experience, still chuckling all these hours later!

    What a great story – lucky he’s not deaf, if it happened to me I’d have no chance of getting in! Wonderful shot of the moon, it was worth it.

      we’re both still laughing & y’know the Old Man Crow is so cool! he woke up, thinking someone was trying to climb in the window, then shook his head in disbelief when he saw it was me (that look was priceless) and came down and opened the door!

    Haha…good story for sure 🙂 Once my friend called me to bring her clothes as she was in her birthday suit and couldn’t get back in her bedroom (where all of her clothes were, of course) because she’d seen, in a blink of the eye, a wild animal dash past her!!! She was unsure what it was, but she wasn’t going in to find out! Ha

    • Mo Crow says:

      did she ever find the wild thing was in her bedroom?

      • Nancy says:

        We went to get a neighbor (a big macho guy with a gun! Oy), who came in and found nothing. Many hours later her returned home husband found a baby possum hiding in the very back of a closet. Good thing the oh so brave neighbor man didn’t find the little guy! Haha What a story…what a memory!

    Lol……… Mo that is the best story!! In fact, it’s going in my sidebar.

    ha, this is a wonderful story! and what better way to tackle one’s fears than to dive straight in, unintentionally or not
