I’d like to give a shoutout to Gloucester Rental Center. Go there if you need something for your Party, or Equipment & Tools. In order to refinish my deck I rented a monster orbital sander that worked wonders. It did exactly what I needed. And when I decided I needed a nail gun, it was a quick trip to rent that too! Great staff. They made it easy and flexible. If you are a homeowner you should be aware of this place. Plenty of times I have hesitated on a project because it is impossible to have all the tools, never thinking I could easily rent them. Check them out. I’m glad they are there.

Yo, did y’all know Karen Bell did socks?
Did you want the names of penny candy stores?
My mother remembered Yankee General Store (Selma Bell) and I remember Bertha’s and Critinans on Bass Ave (also called Carl’s)

Hi Joey, When I was a kid growing up in Gloucester in the 40’s we got our penny candy from Higgins store on the corner of Smith St by St Ann’s church I know they renamed the church but to me it’s still St Ann’s. Thanks for all the memories you bring up everyday…Grace Duncan
