Last week’s winner was Paul Frontiero AKA capeannpainter who on a long shot guessed the identity as a Lane’s Cove shack.
Because of the economy, we have suspended asking small businesses for prize donations. BUT… it’s still fun and past winners don’t have to feel guilty about guessing!
A huge thank you to the businesses who have donated the prizes in the past.
This week’s location might be too easy…Sorry, Joey!
Shingles are going on.
The Blynman Bridge and the Blynman School were named for Rev. Richard Blynman, the first minister of the town. The History of the Town of Gloucester, written by John James Babson in 1860, has the interesting background of the bridge and Cape Ann in general. I’m going back to read more.
Yesterday morning while swinging through town I saw Bananas open and I planned on popping in to see if FOB (friend of the blog) Debbie Clark was working.
Debbie wasn’t in but owner Richard Leonard was so I got to chatting with Richard about how long he had been in business with Bananas and what motivates him after all these years. The video interview will be posted at 2:00PM today
There’s a lot of cool stuff that Richard has packed into his shop. Among them are these vintage martini sets.
Looking for something fun to do to break up the routine? Here’s a suggestion-
Go down to Bananas and get yourself one of these vintage martini sets. Then invite a couple of your closest friends over, mix up some maritinis and get shmammered. Sounds like a hell of an idea to me!

If you look under the bridge you can see at low tide it went aground.
