Today’s spring picture from the Leslie Street Spit shows us an artfully-placed traffic pylon pointing up at last week’s waxing gibbous moon, already high in the sky in the late afternoon.
As an aside, I always used to think this phase of the moon was called a waxing gibbon until I was old enough to realize that the term would more accurately describe an ape with a Brazilian.

instead of an innocent bunny prancing around my imagination, thanks to your bent-ness now there’ s a waxed gibbon…how do I explain that to the kids?! have a good one!!
Happy to be of service. I can’t help with the explanation for the kids, though.
We went to the zoo yesterday, a few waxed-looking gibbons pranced around, thank gawd!
