Some favorite images from Tuesday night ‘s election event at City Hall were of the hopeful and pensive faces of friends and families waiting for results. Best wishes and congratulations to all the candidates for jobs well done!

Yes, it’s 76 degrees and sunny on this fine fall day in November! Hannah, Ruby, and myself took to the trails to catch up on some last minute fall colors. Can you find Ruby?
Anyone that knows Donna “hop-along” Ardizzoni, has see her push herself pretty hard since her knee surgery. So, after her visit to Cape Ann Giclée I offered her a Piggy-Back ride to her car and to my surprise she hopped on. This displays that we are a full service studio. (I think she was happy with her print, too!)
SELL OUT ALERT – Fly Amero opening for Steve Miller Band TONIGHT in Lynn – Less than 50 tickets left
It’s not often that a local musician gets to open for a major rock star at a big venue like Lynn Auditorium with over 2000 seats, but then, not every local musician is Fly Amero either!
We’ll be there tonight cheering for one of our favorite local legends while he’s on the big stage!
but I’m sure there is a good explanation for the two barges filled with Adler storage containers in the harbor this morning. Anyone know what it is?
In particular, we want to thank Gail for highlighting the stellar musicians who make Gloucester such a vibrant place to live, especially Jon Butcher, Fly Amero, Allen Estes , David Brown, Dan King, Dave Mattacks, Wolf Ginandes, Henri Smith, as well as some of our regional favorites Danielle Miraglia, Johnny A., John Cafferty , Michael “Tunes” Antunes, The Delta Generators, The Willie J. Laws Band.
Most importantly we want to thank all the fans — especially GMG fans — who get off the couch and come out to support live music in our little slice of heaven up here on Boston’s north shore. As Dave Brown says, “We’re nothing without you!”
Here’s a little video treat — the Yardbirds having a bit of Halloween fun in PA last Saturday with Johnny A (who recently joined the band) on lead guitar (past Yardbirds lead guitar players include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck, so I’d say our local guy, Johnny A., is in pretty good company.)

One last visit for the year
We had to check out the hotel progress. It should be completed by the next visit hopefully in seven months. This has been a wonderful week of Fall weather. We will follow the area on GMG, it’s kinda a nice second to being here. Hope our winters will be as gentle as this season has been.

After casting my vote, I stopped by Buswell’s Pond today.
Just in case anyone is wondering why the boulevard gardens are suddenly gone . . . . .
On Saturday 12 Generous Gardener volunteers moved hundreds of plants to the American Legion.
Hundreds more were moved to various vegetable gardens until Spring.
The Seawall Construction is moving along and Newport Construction will be fencing up the entire area soon.
It is completely eroded under the Fishermen’s Wives plaza.

Iris and Sedum in the back bed
The boulevard gardens will return as a much expanded design in the Spring.
