Overnight An Orange Orb Almost Landed On Me While Freezing Under A Full Texas Moon

This morning when I stepped outside to my elevated patio perch on the outer world I was startled to see that overnight the orange pod-like orb you see here had mysteriously attached itself to a tree branch.

What is this orange thing that somehow ended 30 feet from the ground?

An egg? An extra-terrestrial  being arriving with the full moon?

I would need a ladder to reach this thing for a closer inspection.

Without a ladder all I can do is wait and see what hatches. If anything.

I do not know if anything hatchable would have been able to survive last night's extremely frigid lack of heat.

It was a Three Dog Night, last night. Since I have no dogs I had to find myself an extra blanket at some point in time after midnight.

For the first morning in a long time I did not go swimming in the hot tub this morning.

I did not go hot tubbing for two reasons. One being the obvious reason of it being way too cold to get way too wet. The second reason being I forgot to bring in my hot tub suit yesterday from its outdoor drying location, rendering it frozen stiff and thus requiring a de-frosting before being usable.

Coming up on noon the temperature in the outer world has now gone well above freezing, to 35 degrees.

I think in a few minutes I will put on several layers of outerwear and venture into the outer world to experience some of that bright blue sky and the rare appearance of the sun....

You should have that tomato checked for JD Granger's fingerprints. Or Dud Kennedy's.
