Finding information about Foxwood Resort Casino’s outdoor Ice Skating Rink was a bit challenging and I consider myself pretty good with Google. My research found that the rink opened during the winter of 2010-2011 but never opened for the season last year. It reopened on December 5th 2013 with an expected closing date of February 23rd. With the cold weather we’ve had, I would think it should have been a good season but if I had trouble finding information about it, I wonder if others did as well.

When I asked the folks on the Ledyard Facebook Forum to share some snow photos for a video, they came through as they always do and just in time for Ledyard Photo Friday.
When I walk into a house in Gales Ferry and see dentil molding, I am pretty confident the home was built by B&O Builders. Now retired, Bill Ballestrini and Jim Onorato were the masters when it came to custom moldings in their new construction homes. We just listed a lovely home on 5 Mount Vernon Drive in Gales Ferry built in 1982 and the dentil moldings were the giveaway of who the original builder was.
Buster was a long time resident of Alice Acres Farm in Gales Ferry. He passed on this week and will be missed by the community including all the children that stopped by say hello while enjoying the ice cream at Cows and Cones. I took this photo several years ago. It has always been one of my favorites and even has graced the Town of Ledyard’s website.
When Laurie Roediger posted this photo of a cold mini donkey on the Ledyard Gales Ferry Community Forum on Facebook, chuckles soon followed. Due to the extreme cold weather, Laurie was looking to buy or borrow some heavy blankets for Miss Rosie O’Donkey. It really did give new meaning to the expression CYA.
I posted this photo of me on Facebook with the comment, “Obviously my speech wasn't as profound as I thought it was.” My friends from around the country jumped in to defend me and gave Fred Allyn III and Bill Saums a very bad time about it. I love each and every one of my fellow town councilors and beg forgiveness for posting the photo in the first place.
I shot this photo five years ago at the local Stop and Shop on the day before Thanksgiving. It was hectic and I was bummed that I had left shopping until the last minute. Audra came around the corner and I literally laughed out loud. (LOL) Now I post this photo every year. Who needs gravy, cranberry sauce or pumpkin pie with your turkey when you can have beer?
Audra of of Audge’s Mobile Pet (now located at the Gales Ferry Animal Hospital) was a good sport to let me take a photo of her!
