Kettlemans Bagel

Was on my way home when I came across Kettlemans Bagel …so of course I had to stop. Had the smoked meat on a sesame seed bagel…SOOOO GOOD!

Orr Announces Retirement

Chicago Black Hawks owner, Bill Wirtz watches as Bobby Orr announces his retirement at just 30 years old. November 9, 1978.

Maple Leaf Gardens

Construction on Maple Leaf Gardens was completed in 1931.
In 1954, at the age of 21, my father moved from Montreal to Toronto and lived in the apartment building in the right of this photo. Right behind MLG. Two years later he purchased a pair of season tickets that are still in the family today (my brothers share them, I'm a Bruins fan).
It wasn't until this year that I really thought about this… imagine, a 23 year old bachelor living behind MLG with season tickets starting in '56. The amazing hockey he witnessed first hand…not to mention the Stanley Cups.

My iPhone has gone on strike…

Frankie is a Bruins Fan

My turntable is having issues so no vinyl this morning. Instead, listening to some Whitesnake on cassette 😎
Happy Sunday

Obscured by Clouds

I think this just may be my favourite Pink Floyd album. Definitely the one I've played the most since the 70s.

Beauty of a Day!

Gorgeous afternoon at the lake. Can't access Whitby Pier yet, but there's a nice view of it from Heydenshore Park.

Lakeview Park, Oshawa

Frankie, Riley, and Quinn are staying huddled together today. But they just want to go back to the car, the wind off the lake makes for a pretty cool walkabout.

Upside Down Frankie

Seems like only Frankie and me are interested in watching the Leaf game, and Frankie likes to watch upside down — which, if you think about it, makes sense 😂

Toronto Voyageurs Hockey Club • MTHL 1971

Not sure of the exact year. Could be 1970 or 1972. But that's me in the 2nd row, 2nd in from the right. My Dad (John Rodkin) coached, he...
