Tempers were flaring and feeling had gotten hurt. I received a tearful phone call last night from a concerned hockey parent who had just learned our Jr. Eagles recreational hockey team would not be playing in the Slapshot Invitational tournament. Rather than go into that ever turning can of works, I have chosen to share a photo I dug up out of the archive of the 2005 NCYH Grizzlies rec team.
Being ‘Flash’, I couldn’t just leave the photo as is, so I spent some time in Photoshop and put a vintage spin on it.

A follow-up to the Alexander’s family vacation. Well, most of the Alexanders. Zac decided he had important business to attend to in Fort Collins; seventeen years old don’t ‘cha know. Max, Jan Baby and I, Flash Buddy had a great adventure driving to Jackson Hole Wyoming. Cheap motel (49er Inn & Suites), fine dining, hiking, a cruise through Yosemite, rafting the Snake River and horseback riding; and have the pictures to prove it.
The Pictures that Prove it.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the Christmas season to be here! There are few things better in the world of holidays than the tinkling of Christmas music, the smell of hot apple cider and visions of sugar plums! Of course being the guy that I am, I also do love the mircobrews holiday ale!

My Sister Judi occasionally leans on me for help with her graphic arts projects. Today I was asked to solve her Corel Draw issues and send over a flyer that she could use to advertise her upcoming camp-out.
Corel Draw is a great program and can be a lot of fun. Judi had the file so convoluted that starting from scratch was my only option. I fired up Photoshop; waaay more fun that Corel Draw. Using a background I found online on somebody’s free backgrounds blog, the end result is nothing real special, but might help jump start your own Christmas flyer project.
