Vanderbilt Football

Vanderbilt Football and their helmets. Most changed helmet in the SEC. This is last years 2011 and now they are in black. Done for a piece of stationary. They may make the playoffs this year.
Saw them play Umass. Not pretty. Umass way out of their league. Received a nice piece of change for their troubles.

Mike Trout

Mike Trout - huge rookie year. Old time baseball instincts. Too much to compare to The  Mick? Rookie of the Year? Then - 2014 MVP in the AL.
 He received all 30 first place votes. Ironically, Trout had his worst full season as a big leaguer in 2014, setting new career-lows in hits (173), batting average (.287), on-base percentage (.377), OPS (.939), OPS+ (167) and stolen bases (16). Of course, he did still lead the league with 115 runs, 111 RBI, 338 total bases and 7.9 WAR.

Rockport Stairs


Rockport stairs to porch to house. 
Some things we work on during summer vacation.
Just trying to keep the place up. 
Couple of funny things happened here but it's all good.
Really a group project - even the dogs are involved. But that's another story.

Cape Hedge Beach House

Cape Hedge Beach house - in July 4th - Cass took photo.
I painted it and tweaked it looking for a few special effects.
There are other photos but this will do for now. Forgot what the
house looked like and tried a few different designs. We see
this place from our living/dining room window on a
daily basis. Once known as the barn for the horses. And an
"annex" to the Cape Hedge Beach House that burned down.

Good Harbor Beach


Gloucester - I guess this came out alright. Couple of editions. 
We'll try this one. Tried to get everything in. Squeezed the shot and the painting. 
Dabbled in Photoshop. No one seems to care anyhow. It's just a representative shot.
Don't get excited!!!You want more - I'll give you more!!!

Wes Welker was not the reason the Patriots lost the Super Bowl. 
They would have won if 100 other things would have happened too. They were just inches away and maybe 1 minute of playing time. They needed a bounce to go their way. They needed one call to go their way. They needed Eli to make an error. It was an uphill battle from the first possession. They had numerous opportunities and just never cashed in. Their best player was hurt (GRONK) and hardly practiced for 2 weeks. This was just disappointment and that is the reason for the painting. I felt the way Welker felt. He was one of the major reasons New England  got there in the first place!
OHH NOOOO!! - HE'S GONE TO DENVER!!!??? 3-13-13

The U -
 I don't know, I guess I had a moment of weakness. I like college football. I'm not a real fan of either team. I like the conferences they play in. I like the style they play down South. College football at the BCS level is really a dumb idea. It is run by the super conferences and a playoff would make so much sense. Back in the day, I was so much a  fan of the bowls and now they are virtually meaningless. Any team can play in a bowl game. What's the big deal? Alabama - LSU for the title this year was a rerun of the same game they played earlier in the season with a different result. 40 days between games - I mean  - come on.
