Happy Birthday Phillie Phanatic

Hi everybody,

Just wanted to wish the Phillie Phanatic a Happy 39th Birthday and I hope you are enjoying you big day today down at the ballpark.  It is a little weird how the date of your birthday changes every year yet is always falls on a Sunday.  Since I started covering your birthday on my blog, the dates of your big day have been:

2013 = April 21st
2014 = May 18th
2015 = April 26th
2016 = April 17th
2017 = April 23rd

Oh well, I guess it's just a strange mystery.  Happy Birthday Phanatic and thanks again for making me laugh during every Phillies home game!!!

Gettysburg Photo of the Month (April 2017)

Hi everybody,

This month's photo was taken during my trip to Gettysburg two weeks ago and is a shot of the monument to the 15th New York Battery.  This picture was taken near the Peach Orchard....which was the scene of heavy fighting on second day of the Battle of Gettysburg.  As you all can see...there are many other monuments in the background including the Pennsylvania Memorial.

Throwback Thursday (4-20-17)

Hi everybody,

This week's Throwback Thursday moment is another picture from my trip to New Orleans in September 2014.  This shot was taken during one of my wacky adventures down Bourbon Street.  New Orleans was such a cool place to visit.  I really want to get back there again someday.
