Regular readers (I don't know if I still have any faithful readers and forget about adoring fans - haa haa) know the main reason I have not been posting regularly because I am occupied with watching NHL playoffs games.  Playing Scrabbles is another reason.  My highest score is 468 points and my best word is "waxy" (I don't even know what it means!).    
In previous post, I was not clear with my comments about the new look of my silly blog.  I should have written that the new admin console caused much confusion when I first login.  I have gotten used to it but I still prefer the old format.  Blogger should know that you can't teach an old dog new tricks!  Ok, let's get back to hockey.  My world is still upside down because the Rangers are the only Original Six team still standing.  Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs never made it to the Playoffs.  My beloved Red Wings were eliminated (it's still painful writing about this) and both the Bruins and the Blackhawks did not make it to Round 2.
It has been a very strange 1st Series.  No one expected teams such as the Penguins and the #1 seed Canucks performed (uncharacteriscally) poorly.  I saw the above vanity plate at the Blues parking lot, how appropriate!  Too bad, the Toronto Maple Leafs goalie could not do exactly what he needed to do, "STOPUCKS"!

My Dad was an avid hockey fan...loved every game and yelled at the tv for hours, if not seeing a game in person. He was a hockey player in his younger days on real ice outside in the dead of winter. About the only sport he wasn't passionate about was football !

As for reading your posts, I do,and I enjoy them ! I should comment more so you know I've visited... sorry, been taking a break from the blog world and reading and writing stuff at the beach !

Regarding your great wall with the arborvitae shrubs-- I want to do something similar in my own yard, but fear 15-20 years down the road, the root system will tear into the retaining wall. Still really want to do it, but not sure as it seems to be the consensus of most landscapers I talk to... thoughts?
