Here's another house within walking distance of where I live. I really like how the siding is vertical, nice and different from most houses around here.

The tan house on the left is where I live, and the green house on the right is another house on the street. This is a short street, and it'd be great to sketch them all, but so many of them are almost completely obstructed by trees. That's a good thing, usually, unless you want to get a good sketch of it from across the street.

The sun was getting high in the sky, making it a bit hard to see toward the end, but as always, people were very nice when I'm out and sketching.
It was weird, but then I ran a couple errands, and everyone out and about in Tremont and Ohio City were all so nice today. At the grocery store, people were dancing around the aisles to the store's music and chatting up with each other. When I went to go to the bakery (which was closed), people were stopping to wave me in and out of traffic. The guy at the car wash let me go before him.
You can't beat these final nice days of the year. Everyone's a little nicer.

I usually go to one Indias' game a year. I do enjoy being at the ballpark, but it's not all that affordable, so I only go when the tickets are free. I got 2 free tickets from buying gas over the summer from BP, so I invited a good friend to go with me. We were sitting way up at the top, like may be 8 or 9 rows from the top. The park isn't all that big, so you could still see very well.
Now, here's the thing about things in Cleveland. Even though it's been Progressive Field for a couple of years now, everyone in Cleveland still calls it Jacobs' Field, which was its original name when it opened in 1994. It's not that we're making a statement against Progressive Insurance, mind you. It's just that we do that with everything. In fact, old schoolers around here, refer to Macy's as May Company, and those stores haven't been May Company probably for 30 years (and they were Kaufmann's in between), and they referred to Dillard's as Higbees. Quicken Loans Arena is still call the Gund, and let's face it, that's going to stick because Quicken Loans doesn't roll off of the tongue at all. I'm sure it's confusing when we give directions to people, because when we tell them to pass Jacob's Field or the Jake, they'll never find it.

I tried to find a website for Tim Willis, but I didn't seem to find one. If anyone is aware of where to find a link to him online, please let me know. I'd like to link here in case people want to learn more about his work.
