This is a great time to catch a glimpse of spider webs, which give a different twist to the term "web posting."

A few months before our beloved Chicago Blackhawks ended a five-decade drought and won the Stanley Cup, Ronna gave me this Stan Mikita action figure, which has since been perched on my computer while I have kept track of Hawks' happenings on the internet. As you all know, Stan was a small, classy playmaker who only in the latter years of his career donned a helmet. He was one of the best in the game, but, alas, he never hoisted the Cup. But he is now an ambassador for the Hawks and his spirit helped keep our spirits up during the many tense moments we experienced in the drive that ended in springtime delirium. OK, so the Habs had a good run, too.

When the phone rings at 4 a.m. and somebody mentions "fire," you know this is going to be a long day. When fire consumed the Long Sault bar in Grenville, just across the bridge from Hawkesbury, fire fighters hosed the 100-year-old building down, oblivious to the danger posed by propane tanks. Some people got bricks as souvenirs from the landmark, which contained two businesses and lots of happy memories.
