Spring Forest

April 15, 2013. The last bits of snow in this forest picture had melted by this afternoon as spring finally, at long last, begins its return to Moncton (we'll ignore the ice pellets forecast for tomorrow).

Not a Fan

April 14, 2014. When it's late and you need a daily photo and you have a cat and a souvineer from a Phillies game, putting the hat on the cat is a natural. As you can see from his expression, Alex is not impressed, from which I deduce that he is not a Phillies fan.

First Sign of Spring

April 13, 2014. O'm told some people saw some very confused robons wondering what to do in all the snow. But here the first sign of spring is a tulip peeking out by the side of the house. Hard to believe it's mid-April.

The Tracks

April 12, 2014. Back home again, ion the cab on the way from the airport, in daylight no less! These are the railway tracks where they cross Wheeler.

Hey Miller Lite

April 11, 2014. This vendor's call was "Hey Miller Lite." Every few minutes. That was all he said. Each of the vendors at the Phillies game had their own distinctive call. It was all part of the rich tapestry which is a Major League Baseball game. I could go every night.

April 9, 2014. Travel day today, morning flight to Philadelphia, followed by a trip to the ballpark to see the Phillies play the Brewers (the home team lost 9-4 in a sloppy sloppy game).
