This was heading to the airport and the ride over to see Scooby for Christmas. She was happy to see us.
This appears to be a regular play; the goalie is keeping an eye on the player from the opposing team rounding the back of the net with the puck, but take note of the placement of the butt end of the goalie's stick:
Last weekend was a get together of doggies galore at the Abbotsford Tradex for the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of BC. The fur was flying, but it was limited mostly to the grooming sections.
Taking a good hockey action photo is difficult. Personally, I'd want to see some ice flying, an emotional face, a puck and some stick movement in the frame to communicate the stress of the moment. Of course I didn't capture anything like that at the hockey game last weekend, which was a disappointment. That was made up, however, by the background crowd that I found I could tell more of a story with by imagining different speech bubble scenarios. And it was a good prompt for me to learn how to draw them to boot.

It's that time of year... get your muck boots out of the closet and head down to the local pumpkin patch. I spent a few hours at Aldor Acres in Langley last weekend; hay rides, petting zoo and a little bit o' dancing too.
When it rains it can indeed pour. It's like how there's nobody in line at the grocery store when you walk in, then when you're ready to get to the checkout so becomes everybody else and their brother. Murphy's Law is you're thrown everything exactly when you don't need it. We didn't need the bunch of rain we got last Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, but it made for a video topic nonetheless:
Continuing with the wildlife theme of late, here's what bear warning signs in BC look like. At first glance it looked official. I gathered it was an educational piece about how to avoid encountering a bear, and if perchance you did come across one how you should act...
... but upon reading the sign in more detail I was a bit taken aback. The municipality actually printed this?
That's right, chances are nobody speaks bear. Literally zero. In fact, more people speak Klingon than bear. But, hey, we even have wildlife overpasses in BC so it all goes hand in hand I guess!
