Dog Day Afternoon

After her shower, Stella had to stop by the office to check something on the server.

Then she got dropped off at home so I could go see Rosie & Laddie with their 7 new Wheaten pups. They were born last week (Dec 14). I have to say Rosie looked pretty happy & very relaxed ...

but that's because the pups were taking a nap.

As soon as they woke up, Rosie passed out! One puppy is either A) confused, B) doesn't like crowds, C) the one male who just wanted to escape from his 6 sisters or D) all of the above.

Nice sunset in my backyard.

Fernandina Beach

Today I went to Fernandina Beach to see Bob. After lunch, we drove past an old hand-painted VW van. Of course we had to stop to take some pix.

Bob shoots the van reflection, while I shoot his reflection in his car.

This is the van reflection in Bob's car. Crazy!

Santa & Mrs. Claus got into this Studebaker & drove away. I can't believe I didn't ask them to pose for a portrait.

Bob & Beverly's sharks' teeth collection. VERY cool! Today's count is 6297. WOW!

Tonight we had a water main break at the end of my block. It was a huge mess! We didn't have water for a few hours. Now we have to boil all water for 2 days. UGH!

Me 'n Stella

Rob took some really nice pix of me 'n Stella in the backyard. The light was amazing!

Rob, the Dog Whisperer, literally ... it looks like he's whispering in her ear. For some reason Stella will do whatever Rob says. She wouldn't even think of lying on top of anyone else. He seems to put her in a trance.

Renee, Greg & Tory

Today I shot Renee, Greg & Tory for their Christmas card. They wanted to sit by their new pool. It was a little rainy but we managed to get a nice shot

I actually shot this iPhone photo of Tory on Thanksgiving. Not sure what it is, but there's something I love about this pic.

Holiday Party & House Stuff

Today we had the TOUR staff holiday party at the clubhouse. It was nice, as always, BUT ... these are NOT chocolate!!!

This afternoon I had my house exterior debugged & pressure cleaned. All the big trees were trimmed as well. It looks GREAT!

Stella enjoyed snacking on the tree trimmings. Giant "sticks" were everywhere!

After that was a trip to Pet Supermarket to buy some food & bark at the ferrets. This nice rusty well cover was nearby.

Brighton Beach Boxes

Stan & I had lunch at the Italian restaurant at the Crown. This is the ceiling over the outdoor dining area.

Everywhere you go, there's always gelato & it's usually photogenic..

While I was waiting for some info from the concierge I saw a potential photo.


The Melbourne skyline with the Brighton Beach Boxes.

My self-portrait

This pup wanted to play fetch.

Stan's self-portrait

Unfortunately we only had about 90 minutes of awesome light. I could've shot there for hours!

Stan braved a beach bathroom.

The Presidents Cup Day 4 & Closing Ceremony

While I was waiting for the shuttle at the Crown Towers, there were Samoyeds everywhere I looked, waiting to pull a sleigh. There were probably about 20 of them & a couple were puppies.

Chris, Stan & me on the first tee.

It was REALLY windy!

The Closing Ceremony followed ... about an hour after play was completed.

Ladder please! Surrounded by photographers, Stan tries to get all of the players to look at him.

Chris got up on the front of the ladder.

This was what they were shooting ... the more casual of the two USA's team photos.

The Presidents Cup Day 1

Dustin joked with the fans after he hit his ball into the crowd on the 10th hole.

The gallery stretched from tee to green.

Back at the Crown, while looking for a place to have dinner, I spotted a rare Australian fish ... the Ass Groper (seriously, read the sign on the right)!  ;-)
