Splish Splash

I remember playing with the hose in the backyard being one of my favorite summer past times when I was just a lad. I loved to make shapes with the water, make rivers, dig holes in the dirt, spray for distance. I'm happy to see that the genes have been passed on.

Meet the Mets

I've always been a NY Mets fan. I grew up in Queens, just a bus ride away from Shea Stadium and spent plenty of summer afternoons there. It's just as much fun (if not more expensive) to watch the team now. And with the way they have been playing lately, you don't automatically get ridiculed just by wearing a Mets shirt or cap in public. Yes, Mets fans can hold their heads high again. As my son says, very matter-of-factly, "Yankees... boo.". I concur.

Not at Home

There are some kinds of flowers that I never see in New York. Maybe I'm not looking closely enough. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places. Maybe it's that whole period that we have between November and March, when most of the plants say, "Hey, what's with the cold weather? I'm outta here. Let me know when the sun comes back.". I can't say I blame them.

Here's another one.
