The picture above was my first encounter with a real snake not the harmless garter snakes in my Western New York lawn. We were on a family Florida trip. Unlike pictures posed with parrots, I felt uneasy for this picture but smiled anyway. In this moment, I learned that I could feel uneasy and safe, as long as I treated this animal with respect.It was 1977.I was 6 years old. I still remember at 42.

Side note: We dont have snow yet.This was shot last year. I just finally pulled the footage for edit.

A fleet of Army Jeeps rolled slowly down a still sleepy 21st Street in Coney Island. They parked in perfect rows at a sandy asphalt tennis court across the street from where I stood. Next came 10 ambulances. Suddenly, the enormity of the situation rang crystal clear. This iswhy we, Hoags Corners Volunteer Fire Company, drove 3 1/2 hours through the dark to deliver hurricane relief supplies by morning.
Imagine being elderly, disabled or simply without another place to go when Hurricane Sandy...

This is one of those topics that gets me right here. Pictured above is Trex. Hes one of our adoptable dogs at Dog House Adoptions, one of roughly 30 who weve offered shelter from the streets in Rensselaer County, NY since our founding 6 months ago.
