This Guy Must Have Picked the Short Straw

Construction continues on the Rockport Breakwater and, after watching this guy do his work, you have to assume that he picked the short straw.

Yikes!  That is not a job I would want in January…or anytime really.

Great job, my friend!



Drawing On Ice From Leslie Heffron

Hi Joey – I made a little movie I wanted to share with GMG.  I attempted to send it to you directly from Vimeo, but I don’t know if you ever got it.”
     On Sunday, down at Niles Pond I used my skate blade as my “pencil” and the ice as my “paper” to do some abstract drawing.  Hope you like it!
