  Celebrate Groundhog Day

Morning Cleveland, & Happy Monday!

With all this talk about the big storm we are supposed to get this week…don’t you want to know if “Phil” will predict a long or short rest of our winter? Celebrate Groundhog Day at the North Chagrin Reservation in Mayfield Village, this Wednesday night, 7pm.

Participants will enjoy a short hike around the reservation complete with a campfire finish to the evening. Meet at the Nature Center’s education building located off Buttermilk Falls Parkway. For additional details call 440.473.3370.

Happy Groundhog Day Week, the perfect excuse to celebrate!

  Five Bucks!

…and I’m not talking about dollah dollah bills yo! (cracks me up every time!)

I seemed to have created a monster…while my parents were in town last week I was telling my dad about the blog, my awesome readers and how much I enjoy letting people know what’s going on around town.
With that said, my Dad spent an afternoon playing golf at our amazing Metropark System-Big Met. While enjoying the great summer weather we’ve been having, he spotted FIVE BUCKS crossing the Rocky River and instinctively snapped this photo from his cell. He then proceeded to tell me my readers would like to see it too!
So, here is a small post thanks to my Dad, enjoy.
Thanks Dad, great pic!
