Its Saturday in Spring...it may be the last hockey game of the season. I have more than completely enjoyed playing my 1st season of hockey ever. It has been a great (sometimes painful) experience learning how to skate and then start playing hockey. There's not a lot of opportunities, as a beginner adult, to play hockey. I was fortunate to get into a co-ed league where there was room for a beginner like myself. I'm going to miss it....it made me feel more Canadian.

Time to go outside and play..although that's where I play all the time anyway...whatever. By play I guess I mean 'work' in the yard. Now that the snow is gone....all the jobs that were hiding are very prominent now. I think building a fence is high on the list so that we don't have the whole neighborhood checking us out when we're trying to drink gin+tonics on the deck. A fence will provide some privacy.

I'm glad to say that it is still winter in the mountains. There is only remnants of snow down here at the valley bottoms and the newest green is starting to sprout. It happens every year around here; people just stop going to the hill even though the snow is good. That makes people like me happy because there are no line-ups and more snow to be had. I have looked at the Mtn. bike but the trails aren't clear yet and who wants to ride on the dirty road?

Just putting a photo up. The snow is melting fast around here but the riding is still good up at the hill. I'll be able to drive the '63 wagon out of storage soon and get it ready for the race season.
Happy St. Patrick's Day....I think things are going to get ugly after hockey tonite....there was talk of a keg in the dressing room...can't see that going wrong.....
