Hi Joey!

Antique Desk?

I bought this desk last weekend. I don’t have much information on it, but here are several photos that might give someone enough to identify the style, period, wood, etc. I talked to David Cox and Dick Davis at Dave’s antique shop downtown and got some possible  info.

Click on any photo and if you click on  “all sizes”, you’ll get a much closer view.

– The hardware is NOT brass.

– The wood is probably mahogany.

– It may have been built in the early 1900’s.

– It looks like it is Governor Winthrop style.

– It is signed on a piece of paper on the back.

I’d love to find out more about this and how to proceed with the refinishing. Most of it is down to the bare wood, but there has been some repair done with filler near the top and the cubbies inside need to be sanded. I’d like to do this myself, but I’m not sure how. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!           —–Sharon

Flanagan’s Wake, Saturday night, March 6 at Gloucester Stage Company Organized by Eastern Point Day School

From Ally O’Connor-

For one night only in 2010, on Saturday, March 6, Flanagan’s Wake comes to the Gloucester Stage Company.  An interactive Irish wake that magically transports you to the Emerald Isle to mourn Flanagan, dear friend and cousin.  A cast of actors play the roles of Flanagan’s family and friends, toastin’ , singin’ and dancin’ with all the audience members – the “American cousins”.  This brilliant ensemble of Boston area improvisers, including several from Cape Ann and North of Boston, use suggestions from the audience to create improvised songs and stories about the man in the box.  Critics call Flanagan’s Wake “hilarious…rich and spontaneous…charming cast” (The Boston Globe), “Dead-funny…a good humored spoof” (Boston Herald) and “The funniest show you’ll ever see” (NBC TV).  With an almost sold out show, pre-purchase of remaining tickets is recommended and are $25.00.

Bass Rock’s Motel Roof ends up on 13th Green

Part of the Roof blew off in Thursday’s storm, and also up-rooted a tree on the 13th green at Bass Rocks Golf Course.  Some Golfers were happy the tree is gone, but Tracey the owner of the motel was not thrilled about the roof.   Click on photos to enlarge.
