The Hexagon Storm at The North Pole of Saturn.

It's been there a while.  Maybe a long while.  Voyager 1 saw it when it zoomed by Saturn decades ago.

Real Story?  Newly minted USMC (Honorary) LCPL "handsome" Howard created and controls the hexagon from his office at Chez Kid who is quite serene and appreciative of his added stripe.

  1. My concern is that while you and the lance corporal are taking pictures of one another, the people of Saturn do not realize that they are in danger of a planetary catastrophe owing to global warming, caused by (yes, you guessed it) Saturnite activity. I'm very worried.

    1. Yes, but we do not control the universe. Only geometric storms, ozone layers, and felines. Each life must find its own way and endure its own challenges. The universe would be ruined by a fixer of all things. Oggghhhhhhhmmmmmmm. At least Howard never refers to his pictures as effeminate 'selfies' He calls them "talk to the paw" or "talk to the whisker" pictures.

  4. Ed, He doesn't mess around. He is talking about doing SEAL training this winter. He's not waiting for spring like the wussy boys.

    1. Lisa, every time he breaks out he's gone most of the day and comes back with lipstick on his collar.
