We had these in NYC in 2008 when the All-Star game was in the old Yankee Stadium. There were 42 of them (I think the artist who did all of them said it was because Jackie Robinson wore #42), one for each major league team (30), a second one each for the Dodgers (LA and Brooklyn) and the Giants (SF and NY), one each for Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium and I think the Yankees had a second one since they were hosting the game. The others were for MLB and the All-Star game.

We also had cows a few years ago, I think there were about 500 of them, but that was before I had a digital camera and I can't find any of my pictures.

Hey Mol, I think the painted Bighorn Sheep in Palm Springs is an anomoly...the only one i know of is that one at the top of the Tramway. :lol:

Monrovia did painted "Samson" Bears this year for their 125th anniversary. Samson was the famous "hot tub" bear that fish and wildlife tried to put down until there was public outcry, instead he lived his final days out at a zoo...complete with a hot tub. :lol: I haven't seen any of the bears, apparently the artists could choose to display them or not. :-? But i found some pics online:

We had catfish in Nashville. Now we have guitars. I have a picture of one of them, but I'm climbing it in a miniskirt after one too many drinks. I don't know that I'm up to public humiliation this evening.
I knew this girl made of memories and phrases, who lived her whole life in both chapters and stages.
Danced 'til the dawn, wished all her worries away.

She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown.

I have considered painting "start here" in my area, but I don't think that's exactly what you were talking about.
