San Francisco Peaks

San Francisco Peaks  So, we were Driving and these showed up on the horizon. We were going to drive
right through them and I was hoping not over them. Then we get sort of robbed on the other side at a gas station for tires. But that's another story - on one hand, we needed new tires, on the other, not  just then and not those FIRESTONE tires! But then, hey we were driving, things happen on the road!!


Pujols and its absolutely amazing how many people don't know this guy. In New England he's like invisible. You gotta be a devoted baseball guy to realize how good he is. What's going to be even more incredible is he will be gone and people will ask "When did he play?" Just won a Gold Glove although
I totally believe half the voters don't have a clue. They go "Who won last year? Oh, Ok - check"
Now we have the 300 million for 10 years!  I have a tough time realizing the value at the back end of his contract. Given his age. Maybe the DH will make it worthwhile with the AL and the Angels. Maybe the Northeast will get to see more of him. Most certainly.
And in 2011 - they are back in the World Series versus the Texas Rangers (making a return engagement)
AND - St Louis just won game 7 and the World Series in dramatic fashion over the Texans, Game 6 was incredible except for the fact it finished at 1:30 AM in the 11th inning and there was no way I could keep my eyes open that long!!!

Nadal had a great US Open and finally won all 4 Majors. Rafa d. Novak. Some put Nadal above Federer and they could be right. Some have said this is not the Age of Fed but the Age of Nadal. Nadal is going to eclipse Roger.  Interesting debate I suppose. Fed eclipsed  Pete - so the story goes.  It does not bother me one way or the other. It's just great tennis and a whole lot of fun to watch. I was rehabbing my leg and the whole 2 weeks consumed me. It was great and totally took my mind off of my stupid insane surgery.

Dave Roberts

Dave Roberts steal and set the whole thing in motion 2004.
Just saw him the other day after a visit to Dana Farber.
He looked good. Amazing. Great guy.
Signature moment in that year.We are looking for one this
year. Probably 2 players colliding somewhere. Maybe Papi
in a wheelchair? Half the team in Rehab? It was just one
thing after another.

Hermosa Beach Truck

So, it's a lifeguard thing and I became fascinated with this Escape?
I was dying to take it for a spin.

Snow Chairs

Yes, Myrtle Beach had snow! SC doesn't know what to do with it. February snow storm and we cannot use the porch at the beach! It must have lasted a day. To say the least - it's been an unusual winter and early Spring! We'll forget this day come July and maybe hope for it back???

Hermosa Beach

Long, long story behind this painting and I won't go into it - 
suffice it to say - we made it to Cali in December and we were a little beat up by the road.

Napa and we did a little tasting! Just a quick one before I make some moves here, Venezia Winery.
Excellent. Like most of the places out there - incredible lay out. The back porch is a great spot for lunch!
