Hammy is the mascot for the Rockford Ice Hogs (the local minor league hockey team). He was featured at a promotional event this morning at Steiner Electric. I mentioned it to my wife. She remembered she had taken this picture of him at a KMart back on May 3, 2008, and had me print it up last night and take it to him this morning so he could autograph it for her.

2015-02-21 distillery conservation area

A shortish 2 mile walk in a conservation area in Boone County. A lot of work walking through the snow. I had in mind walking around a couple of fields but ended up cutting it to just one field as we ran out of time. It started to snow a little on us as we were finishing.
