PhotoHunt: Symbolic

Section 42, row 37, seat 21 of Fenway Park.

This seat in right field was painted red to commemorate famed Red Sox Ted Williams' historic home run. It was 1946 and his homerun the longest homer in the history of the park. At the time, this gargantuan blast landed in actual bleacher seats and not as the seats we know housed at Fenway.

In any event it symbolizes just one little jigsaw piece of the Red Sox history.

A little late - Spent a long weekend in the fantabulous city of Chicago. First night was, of course, beer and deep dish pizza!

PhotoHunt: One

One Native American runner amid the 11,000+ at the Falmouth Road Race this weekend. It's an annual road race and an annual family event. This year there were only family 7 runners. One year we had 11. Next year they will run as a team.

My daughter registered and ran as my 72 year old sister (only residents can run if you don't make the qualifications) and Julie placed first in her category! HAHA! Of course, we couldn't let that go without a bit of ribbing so my niece's husband called my sister and said he was from New Balance (this year's sponsor) and wanted to set up an interview with her for running the race in a little over 1 hour (close to the record in that age group) and the first woman in that age category from Falmouth. We had her going for a while. She tried to break into his congratulations by telling the truth, but he kept on congratulating her.

PhotoHunt: Painted

Mea culpa for not being more present on these blogs over the last few months. It just seems life was going at warp-speed and deadlines - both personal and professionally - got in the way! But, I hope to catch up with all my blogging buddies and hope you are all well.

Since it's summer, the Cape is my destination most weekends. Appropriately, here are the gingerbread houses of Martha's Vineyard - San Francisco has her 'painted ladies' and the East Coast has the painted gingerbread houses along the harbor roads on Martha's Vineyard, bearing the colorful names of "Angel Cottage," "Wooden Valentine," and "The Pink House", to name just a few. Here are a few examples of these cottages.
