I haven't been to Lake Superior's shoreline lately, so I can't report if the ice pack featured in Brita Haapala's picture here today is still in tact or not. I just love the blues in the photo and the way the whole scene makes the youngster stand out in the shot, so well. By the look on his face, I'd say he's hoping Mom says he can go in for a dip after their photoshoot!

Brita's second photo shows what the kids here UP North can't wait to get out and do, as soon as the snow melts off the fields for the most part. A good game of baseball is such a great opportunity to get outside and breathe the fresh air, while having fun and getting some exercise in too. Looks like the batter took a good swing at that ball, but I can't tell if he hit it or not. Springtime games and fun are underway.

I played the little kid and lost a lure casting from the rocks out front this morning, I think he's waiting for mom to fetch his fishing pole!

Definitely waiting for summer and temps out here this week are going to feel like it. But, we're all aware that we could get a snowstorm in April, lol!

The ball is right above the pitcher's shadow. :) My blog:

It's in mid-air, not resting on the ground like it might look. He had JUST hit it.

Looks like the runner on second isn't too confident in the path of the ball....he's staying put.:) Thanks for the fun shots, Brita!

I am enjoying the pics in your blog, Brita! I'll have to find time later to look at more!

I can't really tell what the ground cover is, but that second pic almost looks more like "mudball" than baseball.

The leaders on the animal rescue site see us catching up and are rallying their troops so I'm posting this in an attempt to show ours what we can do. Let's all keep voting and we may just pull this off!
Latest statistics on CCHS vote.

A couple of people have mentioned voting for the shelter on two different computers. I know it's cheating, but I just verified that if you purge your cookies after you vote, you can vote again. Purging cookies is a good idea anyway, in my opinion, since there are a good number of commercial websites that put tracking cookies on your computer - they can find out where you surf, and that's nobody's business but yours.
Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

Sharon, I don't think you're's smart now days to be extra careful!

How do I purge my cookies?

By Theresa R. Brunk (Trb0013) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 04:07 pm:

I usually stick my finger down my throat. (Oo)

By Theresa R. Brunk (Trb0013) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 04:11 pm:

Go to task bar above.. click on Tools, go to Delete browsing history click on that and then a box will come up with choices. Click on delete cookies and then that's it.. I was only kidding about the sticking a finger down my throat. Heehee

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 04:42 pm:

Purge of the cookies did nothing for me being able to vote again. Makes more sense they'd monitor the vote at the receiving end and reset the system when they tally the vote, which appears to be once a day. What yoose tink 'pout tat?

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 04:44 pm:

No comments 'pout my finger eidder.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 05:28 pm:

I was waiting for someone to say something about lossing their cookies :)
I didn't want to be the first one.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Monday, March 29, 2010 - 06:09 pm:

Well, Alex, there it goes thinkin' what you were thinkin'. I started to say something earlier about the 'tossing' but since I'd already posted, decided not to, but I couldn't let this slip by....I "toss my cookies" every morning.:D See what you started, Sharon? heehee

Where is this ball field?
Oops, I recognize the Sreetcar Station/ Ice Cream Parlor in the
background. So it's Ahmeek, Nice long shot from across 41.
