Please Donate To The GoFundMe Page For Gloucester Marine Dan Cary Who Was Shot and..

Please share this post via facebook and/or twitter because this GoFundme campaign can have a direct impact on helping the family financially through a difficult emotional time and please continue to send encouraging messages to Dan.

Tina Russell shared with us this news last night-

Thank you everyone for your kind words. We live in an amazing community. Danny is improving. He’s been moved out of ICU!!

If you value community and appreciate the sacrifices made by servicemen and women and their families, then when something like this happens maybe think about helping out those families most in need.
Here’s a link to The Dan Cary GoFundMe Page where you can help.
I’d also like to note that Josie Cary and her family entrusted GoodMorningGloucester to share the treasured audio tapes of her Grandfather Cigar Joe who recounted his incredible stories of fishing out of Gloucester in the early twentieth century. You can hear those here-
Treasured Audio-Gloucester History Cigar Joe Talks About Fishing In the Early Part of The Twentieth Century Part VI
Donate To Dan Cary’s GoFundMe Page here- Helping the Carys

Tonight the Cary family received devastating news that their son Dan was shot in the abdomen. Dan is in the marine core and is based in Georgia. Dan is a proud marine and his family and friends are extremely proud of him. I am asking friends, family, strangers to help this family during this difficult time. Dan is a proud marine serving our country. We don’t know how long his recovery will be. If anyone knows Josie she is the first person to be there to help someone in need. I am asking people just to help while they are with their son during this difficult time. No amount is too little. Thank you everyone for your support!

This young man is Marine Dan Cary born and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts. He was shot in the back and sustained injuries there and into his abdomen by a powerful M16 while stationed in Georgia. The injuries are many.

He has undergone a second surgery to repair damages and is still in critical condition. He needs more surgery tomorrow; it will be his third one.

Throughout this horrific ordeal it would benefit Dan to receive the support of his community and beyond. His mother reads to him messages from Facebook and although he is intubated, unable to speak, he is able to let her know he likes hearing the messages.

Let us each send a message to Dan showing our support and a willingness to pray that he heals, gets strong and comes home soon.

Permission is granted to circulate by his Aunt Tina Russell. God Bless Dan Cary, his family and all of you for taking the time to read this and respond to one of our soldiers.

Hi Joey,

The Cape Ann Theatre Collaborative is producing an evening of two comedic one acts by James McClure.

‘1959 Pink Thunderbird’ takes place in Maynard, Texas, where we meet folks longing for the past and happier times. The characters in these two well-crafted 45 minute plays, stumble clumsily, lovingly, and laughably into adulthood, leaving behind the illusion of their identity and discovering what matters most in life.

Performances are: Thursday 4/9, Friday 4/10, Saturday 4/11, Sunday 4/12 @ 3pm Thursday 4/16, Friday 4/17, Saturday 4/18

Thursday, Friday & Saturday performances @ 7:30

Sunday performance @ 3pm

General admission $20

Purchase your tickets on-line via Ticket Stage

You can also mail us at catcollab@gmail.com to reserve tickets.

Thanks Joey.


Hi Joey, 

Cape Ann Animal Aid, Dog Friendly Gloucester, and Friends of Gloucester Dog Park came out today to cleanup Good Harbor Beach. We’re trying to also educate folks on the importance of picking up dog waste.

Love your blog, thank you!

Hi Joey,

Thanks for posting my rabbit dilemma. Your readers were generous with their suggestions. 

Have you been by Good Harbor beach parking lot? Hard to imagine someone hasn’t sent you pictures – I may have missed it. It looks like the moon. I couldn’t resist pulling over today to catch this guy climbing the mountain of snow that is very very slowly melting. Good luck with opening the lot by March 31…

You Can Own The American Eagle For $750,000 (Which Is a Steal Considering How Much Money They’ve Dumped Into The Adventure)

The American Eagle Has Been Completely Restored Meticulously And Can Actually Take Paying Passengers

(No slight to the well intentioned and passionate people who have donated millions upon millions to the restoration of The Schooner Adventure)  It’s going to be awesome once The Gloucester’s Big Dig Adventure gets sailing but in the meantime you can get the last Gloucester built fishing schooner which is a proven turn key sail operation.

Thanks Anthony Marks for submitting-

Here’s the link to the listing- http://www.davidjonesclassics.com/sail/3464/american-eagle-92-gloucester-fishing-schooner-750000/

When I knew the American Eagle she was offloading whiting here at our dock- Captain Joe and Sons and she looked like she did in this first picture-

image

Frankie and I would nail the wooden box covers on the boxes of whiting to be shipped to New York’s Fulton Fish Market.  If you would have told me back then that The American Eagle would ever have gotten the makeover it got and be selling in 2015 for $750,000 I would have laughed you out of the building.  Probably one of the greatest success stories out of many failed dreams of restoring old, huge money to maintain wooden fishing boats.


Rosalie Parisi forwards this link back in 2012-

The American Eagle used to offload whiting and groundfish here at our dock back in the day.  It was an eastern rigged dragger which most of the Gloucester fleet was back then and Captained by Rosalie’s father Captain Joe Piscitello. 

The American eagle was bought from her father and converted into the boat she is now, a schooner.  You can read all about it here- http://www.schooneramericaneagle.com/about/history.htm

 

and now this is what she looks like-
