Our Great Pyrenees dogs would love it if winter lasted all year long. During the hottest part of summer, it is hard to get them outside. Now, thanks to our first good snow of the season, it is hard to get them to come back inside. Here's the excitement that occurred in my backyard today.
I'm a guy, so I really do not keep track of anniversaries and which gift is associated with each year. For example, the 25th is silver. Yes, I googled it. Anyway I recently celebrated, actually celebrated isn't really the word to describe it, let's go with suffered through my 46th birthday. Now you are asking, does this blog have a point...I am getting to the point...apparently the 46th year is the dick joke year....who knew? Here are a few of the cards I received this year. This one was sent by my mother-in-law. She used to work in a flower shop so I am pretty sure she has the Anniversary Year list memorized so here's her contribution to my Dick Joke year.
on the inside it reads..."and if you had a 3-1/2" floppy you just hoped nobody found out!"
This one came from Chrissy's Aunt Marilyn.
it reads "Happy Birthday to a real master baiter."
and finally the one from my wife...
I can finally get around on one crutch so thanks to Reg picking me up I can watch my hockey team play tonight. It should be no surprise to anyone who reads this blog that my team plays much better without me. This season there are only 4 teams in the "B" division. The league is well balanced and every game is a battle to be the victorious team. So here is my hockey night in Homewood in pictures.
It starts with a pregame stretch. Here's the goalie Mike Deegan getting ready.
Once the goalie is ready, the team takes turns pelting him with shots to prepare him for the game. Also referred to as the shoot around or warming up the goalie.
After the five minute warm up, the game begins.
We played SNS tonight, they scored an early goal on us and here is Ian centering for 2/3rd's of the living legend line, Walt Jadek. & Reg Dunlop.
Here's Walt, #73 doing what he does best, mixing it up in front of their net.
Here's newcomer Matt Landahl scoring on a breakaway.
OOOPS. Hey Ref! Not sure how that happened but I know it shouldn't be a penalty.
Here's the youngest player on the team, Tony Barracca rushing the puck into the offensive zone.
