“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

                                               Ed Hamilton

                                                          Eric Scott

Today I went over to the Colby Street Garage to paint the eyes on Phebe.  May I say that she looks absolutely mavalus!!!!  The shop owner, Ed Hamilton and an employee, Eric Scott, put in about 120 hours sanding, priming, painting, touching up, resanding, sealing etc.  Prior to that, she spent several weeks at the shop of Jack Mazarella where she was put back together with fiberglass.  This process took nearly 150 hours!!!!  She is in much better shape now than she was when we bought her!  With 200 pounds of cement in her legs, she is much more stable.  As if that is not enough, a local business (Monroe Sealfast) donated over $350 worth of paint.  This is among the finest examples of community service and we can't thank these people enough.  The unveiling will take place on Saturday at Septemberfest.


  1. PLease (re) tell Jack, Ed and Eric that they did a great job! Phebe lives!

    As does that crazy James Brown.

  2. Clearly there is a story here that I've missed. Tell? Link? Please?

    She's beautiful.

    And it doesn't hurt that she looks like about 800 pounds of chocolate...

  3. Welcome back Phebe! Can't wait to see pics of you all done and back on display!
    Please tell Jack, Ed & Eric that they did a great job! Well done!

  4. Beautiful work. Congratulations !

  5. Great news!!! This community is an amazing place to live----Can't wait to see Phoebe tomorrow
