What an awesome picture,,,,

...and it's not so much Chris Drury after that wicked goal....its the kid behind him. That, right there, is what its totally about. Click on the picture to get a better view. That kid will never forget that can see it in his eyes. Speaking of eyes.....look at Drury's. That's intensity to the Nth degree.
I get shivers.

Man..what a lucky kid...front row seats behind the goal. I have almost the same view...from up in the 300'!

Every year at this time, we get a visit from these two. Donald and Daisy, I call 'em. It won't be long before Macho Duck comes along and challenges Donald for a shot at Daisy. There'll be a big fight in the water. Don and Macho will start going at it and Daisy will just swim around the perimeter with her tail up in the air like she's all that. Then, when Donald gets done showing Macho who's the boss. Daisy will thank him. That gets noisier than the testostone fight.

Nothing says Spring like a good duck f......ight...I meant to imply fight.

The next visitors to drop in will be Fred and Ethel... the Long Neck Geese that prance around in the field behind the fence. It's loud enough with the quacking...wait till the honking starts!

I love Spring

Two Days...Two Gifts...

....and its not even my birthday!!!

I gave Offspring #3 and her boyfriend my tickets for the Sabres/Leafs game on the 23rd. Y'know the one where the Leafs choked away a 3 goal lead and the Good Guys in Blue and Gold went on to win 5-4. So the Offspring's boyfriend gives me these to show his appreciation. He's such a nice guy.

Then, last night at bowling, Shari gives me this.

I'm feeling really special right now!

The Trees are Budding..The Trees are Budding!!!! its my lilac bush, but its BUDDING! So are the majestic Weeping Willows. From a distance you can see a green little halo around them. Granted the lilac and the willows are usually the first to come into season, but I'm really excited about it.
I'll have to start carrying the camera around with me for the reshoot of the previous storm pics.

Thanks for the info Scott!

Ok...found out where those pictures of the Lake Effect came from. I promised's credit!

"Ever want to know what it looks like when a snowstorm rolls into town? Traffic Reporter Air Gordon (WBEN, Star 102.5) sees it all the time from the weather copter. "It's fascinating," he relayed to me. "The snow looks like something from The Poseidon Adventure. There is a virtual wall of snow... one minute it's clear, and the next it looks like a big wave is about to engulf the city."Even though these photos look menacing, the storm that actually rolled in when these shots were captured was not very significant. They were taken a couple of weeks after the 'October Surprise'.. just a typical lake effect snowstorm dropping some white stuff on the city. "I thought that BRO readers would like to see what it looks like from the air," Gordon said. That's true... we know what it looks like from the ground, so why not get a different perspective?"

5:30 pm....

....and it's still light outside.

The Spouse has been on his annual "Florida Golf Tour" for a week now. One more week to go.

March is a good month.

Whatcha' mean its snowing by you? It's not snowing by me

Check out these incredible pictures. Mother Nature having a little fun with the city. I don't know who took these pictures, but as soon as I find out, they get credit for them. Thanks Nina for sending them to me.

For the geographically challenged....the body of water in the upper right quadrant is Lake Erie. The tallest building on the left that's being draped in the precipitation is the HSBC Tower. I'm pretty sure that highway on the lower right is the Kensington Expressway, The 33, if you will. I'm gonna take a guess and say that these were taken from a helicopter or airplane, judging the different angle this one was taken from. Imagine driving down the I-90, *which you cant see in this runs along the lake shore*. One minute it's all sunny and stuff, gorgeous day for a ride then BAM!!! right into a wall of whitestuff. Crazy....just crazy.
