A bit of this and that

It was a beautiful spring Sunday and this little cutie was enjoying the sun on our neighbour's lawn as we were setting off for a drive.


A solitary shed on a farm field.


This spot is always one of the last to give up the snow.


Not as close as I'd like but here's a pair of Wood Ducks (l-r) : female and male.


Hope you're having a great day, wherever you are!

What you can get at Cracker Barrel :-)

Just as we pulled into the parking lot at the Cracker Barrel in Williamsville, NY - near Buffalo - we spotted this juvenile Cooper's Hawk. What a treat!

Up She Rises

Sitting on the sidelines during a jam at my brother Rob's house in Outer Cove, Newfoundland last August I recorded a few sound clips on my iPod Touch with iTalk. Kevin Hartley (lead vocals) added this video file and posted it to YouTube - here are the boys doing "Up She Rises", a Bob Porter tune.

A shot of some of the guys as they were playing.  Far left on guitar is the vocalist Kevin Hartley and next to him in the white shirt is my brother Rob sitting on and playing a cajon (drum box).
