Surprise for Joey

Let’s all chip in and get one of these for Joey as a welcome home present. We could put it in the parking lot at Capt. Joe & Sons with its butt sticking in the big door and the rest of him taking up half the parking lot. I’m sure Frankie wouldn’t mind. When Joey comes tearing in the driveway and around the corner, he’ll see nothing but a big yellow duck. We could have a welcome home sign hanging from its bill. Shhh, let’s keep it a secret. Since he can’t get wifi, he won’t be able to see it here.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

    I say let’s keep it under wraps and save it for the Parade of Sail next Labor Day.

      They don’t list prices on the site, but they have a 20′ x 10′ inflatable lobster and a bunch of other really cool things in addition to ducks. The iguana is very lifelike. We might need one of those for Rocky Neck this summer.

  2. Ever since the Winter Olympics I have been trying to find an inflatable Beaver figuring I could pick one up cheap. No such luck. Inflatable Moooses but no inflatable Beaver. Bummed.
