Snow shovels, back in the shed and Robins out.

Yep, its changing and I like it. Despite the cool day today and Tuesday ahead, I’m not the only one feeling like stretching my wings.

Won’t be long now for the Snowball stand in Woodstock to be opening. Can’t wait for my first large cherry snowball of the season.  It will certainly wash away the dog days of winter that covered the building.

Found these 3 low res images on an old system but couldn’t find originals. I’m so disorganized. Found these old snow shot buried in an old website I had.

Along Route 99 before Waverly fully invaded the Woods.  What a pleasant stretch of road before that development came. Now it’s almost a daily event where someone will pull out in front of you from a dead stop while you’re doing 50mph which is the speed limit. By the way, when I took the shot below I didn’t realize my car lights parked on the other side by the post office were illuminating the speed limit sign so well.

Oh, and one last thing. In honor of National Puppy Day I post the following pic of my Son and future Daughter in-law’s puppy.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
