The Answer to What is 1630. Joey’s Invitation He may soon regret!

What is 1630?

1,630 is The number of posts I have done since I was invited to join GMG as an Author. Who knew I had so much on my mind. For the most part it’s been fun. Sometimes I get a little carried away. I still have my comments censored by Joey. He tries to save me from myself. During my first couple of years I would love to bust Joey’s Balls when he went on vacation. Back then he didn’t have the time to check the late night posts. So I took advantage of it. Posting joey’s head on a picture of a guy taking a dump was my favorite.

It’s a lot of brain work to come up with a daily post and post title to catch the readers attention. Sometimes I’ll take a little break to recharge my brain.

I never thought this blog would last this long. It’s going to be interesting to see what’s next for GMG.

Goodluck Joey and all the GMG Authors!

Below is my first ever post being a GMG Author

 

Joey’s Invitation He Soon My Regret!

Joey’s Invitation; “Paul, I’m inviting you to officially join the team. All you would need to do is sign up for a free wordpress account and I have it set up so you would be an author like Mike Lindberg , Laurie Lufkin etc.”

Thanks for the Invite to be a GMG Author Joey. It’s an Honor, but I don’t know.

Here are some of my thoughts and questions

Is this an everyday thing?   that may be tough.
What happens if you miss a scheduled post?
I think I have enough Anxiety in my Life.
I don’t have a lot to say!
I could say something  you and I may regret!
What if I ruin GMG’s reputation? It could happen.
What’s the chances of my Wife putting out more because of  this?
What’s the chance of me getting punched from this?
It could be fun!
It could be a disaster!
I could use it to promote the visual arts in gloucester!! and maybe get a kickback. (just kidding)
I could use it to help Promote  Visual Artist’s in this tough economy.
I could use it to promote my stuff!

I could make a complete fool of myself!  I know! That sounds silly, Does’nt it?

See Joey, that’s what goes through my mind.
DO YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE LIKE ME THAT COULD POSSIBLY RUIN GMG’S REPUTATION???????????????
AND I THINK THIS WOULD BE MY FIRST POST.
LOVE , PAUL

What Up Homie Is Comin Back- Better Than Ever.  And for any racist that says the word Homie is associated solely with Gangbangers check variations of the definition from Wikipedia-

Variations in usage

In an early use of the term “homie”, Ella Mae Morse, a white singer, in the original 1946 version of the song “House of Blue Lights” asks, “What’s that homie?” to Freddie Slack, the writer of the song.[citation needed]

In 1992, the Latino rap hip hop group called A Lighter Shade of Brown released the recording “Homies” on their Hip Hop Locos album, which describes what a homie is in the Latino community. The status of “homie” is similar to “my best friend” or “someone I can trust”, as in, “This is my homie Alex, we’ve known each other since grade school”, or “I won’t be around this afternoon, but you can give the money to my homie James, and he’ll give it to me later.”

Watching Black and White Birds

I saw two large black birds in a nearby tree, too large to be crows. Today, a big seagull was perched on the peak of a roof. The bird had an injured leg, just like me. For the homie, it''s do or die time. I balance my laptop while in bed, trying to not bend my legs and cause pain. Homie flew away, and I write this and wait for my physical therapy.

These are the hands we have been dealt.

Seagull-1

This is my post, got it?

A flock of gulls at sunrise.Laughing Gull (summer plumage) at Dolphin Bar, Jensen BeachThe above three photos are from Bob Cullen, and he writes:

The first I caption “Harbormaster Homie”, taken 8/23/08 at Harbor Cove.
The second I caption “Homies Breaking at Dawn”, taken 8/8/12, 15 minutes before sunrise, at Good Harbor Beach.
The third is my “Away from Homie”, taken 4/21/11 in Jensen Beach, Florida. I include it because it’s my favorite gull photo (it’s a Laughing Gull, summer plumage), and because it very much resembles the gull in the GMG logo (which I don’t think exists in Gloucester.)

Homie Steals Video Camera in San Francisco, Records Flight!

Funny video of how a seagull stole my GoPro, flew over the water in front of Golden Gate Bridge and how the camera incredibly managed to survive, recording everything! A flying video from a seagull’s mouth! A San Francisco sunset I will hardly forget..

I saw this on http://www.facebook.com/crockpotguys

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

This is the sunset last Friday night, while I waited for the blue moon to show itself… These colors are what came from the camera with no significant editing. It’s oversaturated somewhat, but pretty close to what I was seeing.  I set my camera’s white balance to “incandescent bulb” to get these colors; on automatic or “sunlight”, it was making everything golden – pretty, but nowhere near the real colors.

I got up to the roof of the rectory early to wait for the sunset/moonrise, and the seagulls, which usually occupy our small roof, were NOT amused that I was usurping their prized vantage point for observing the world.

Homie is giving me the evil eye.
