1-2-3 Hockey: 8 of 45

August 30 2010

Mondays are so brutal. This was an especially cranky one, what with only one half of us going on vacation starting tomorrow. So here’s one of very few pictures we took today, of the begonias in the urns out front.

1-2-3 Hockey: 9 of 45

August 31 2010

Today was the first day of my traditional last-week-of-August vacation, so Schnookie met me for Secret Luncheon. Few things beat Vacation Secret Luncheon, that’s for sure. Today’s topic of discussion was how Emily on Make It Or Break It should just go to Dumbledore already! — Pk.

Since time immemorial (pictured below), the smartest, cleverest, hawtest hockey fans have gotten their fantasy hockey fix via the super and amazing IPB Amazing/Superleagues.


If you’d like to be a part of the smartest, cleverest, hawtest fantasy hockey scene around, now’s your chance.

1. Email andrew, the fearless commish, at a_d_mattson [@] yahoo [dot] com before September 15th. Repeat, before September 15th.

2. Tell him which is your favorite team. Remember, this is a cross-conference league. If you’re a fan of an EC team, your fantasy team must be entirely comprised of WC players. There are no exceptions to this rule. And no trying to bribe andrew with more hookers and blow to try to get around this rule.

3. Watch this space for more information regarding the Auto-Draft. Andrew will make sure you get an invitation from Yahoo! to join the appropriate league (in the past we’ve had to split into two leagues, depending on the number of people). We will determine a date for the Auto-Draft that works for as many people as possible. You will then be responsible for removing all players from the opposite conference before the Draft. You may rank the remaining players as you see fit. Then Yahoo will do the rest!

4. Sit back and enjoy being canon fodder for the powerhouse teams of the Billys Peoplesoxers and Orange Cymballs.

Let the fantasy hockey season begin!

1-2-3 Hockey: 4 of 45

The original title of this photo, before it was selected as our 365 was “Sidewalk in Autumn*… *(May not contain autumn)”.

Under the woefully under-trimmed little trees on the way into McMansionville, you can find some hints of fall while ducking under the low-hanging branches, even though it’s still totally summer.

For Day Four of our Work Challenge I used the 28-135. –Schn.

1-2-3 Hockey: 3 of 45

August 25, 2010

I was a little bummed about how my work challenge efforts have been going, so today I decided to act on an impulse to check out the historic school house I pass signs for every morning. It was a nice little side trip after work, and I was well rewarded. I can’t wait to come back and take pictures here after the leaves change!

For Day 3 of Work Challenge III, I took the 70-300mm lens. — Pk.
