I had originally ordered a small “eclipse kit” from Amazon about a month ago. Other, smaller items, were listed as arriving after the eclipse on 21 August so I ended up with the package with four pair of eclipse glasses and a cheesy book.

I originally had planned to drive up to western Nebraska to be in the path of totality; unfortunately, a co-worker had already requested the day off so I needed to stay close to home/work.

Since I was going to be local for the eclipse I offered spare pairs of glasses to some of my neighborhood friends, Brandi and Lindsay. We ended up with an impromptu party at the park with our dogs, a fruit tray, cupcakes and iced coffee.

The dogs were bored, the people had a good time.
