Saturday my daughter Liv and I took a break from all things Christmas and visited Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and Sandy Point Reservation. Hiking around the refuge is one of our favorite things to do and I was thrilled that she got to see not one, but two owls, a Barred Owl, and a Snowy Owl. The Barred was very nearly completely obscured in a dense thicket, nonetheless exciting to see, and the Snowy was spectacular, causing quite a hullabaloo with the onlookers as he perched in a tree by the road leading into the refuge.

To see an owl in the wild is a gift, and I am counting my blessings, for my beautiful, kind-hearted daughter, and wonderful wild creature encounters.

Gloucester’s Hopes

Gloucester High football has been in the news this week with the resignation of the current football coach Tony Zerilli after 8 seasons.  We wish him well.  I never know what I might find in my stash of treasures, but I found this Gloucester High football article from the 1958 season that I thought might make some of you smile. Shouting out to Red Rudolph, Henry Pascucci, Tim Ryan and Bobby Lopes.

I use a much smaller toolbox from Dewalt for my BBQ gear and it cost $29.99-
