Yes, the childhood is still intact and semi-functioning. Today, George and I were sitting on the front lawn with a cardboard box and a piece of paper looking at the total eclipse.
I grabbed my next door neighbor, a young girl about 20 years old and dragged her over to see it. She didn’t know a person could see it with this childish contraption we had brought out.
Then she said, “just use your iphone..put it on selfie, then point and click without looking”.
So, of course, I did. Now, by the time she said it and I had grabbed the phone, the elcipse was already over…but I got some really cool pictures anyway!
