It’s always amazing to drive around town the morning of the Fish Town Horribles Parade and see all the empty chairs and decorations! All of these shots were taken with my iPhone while fighting through traffic to drop off stuff at our GMG party corner. So this one is for all those folks who are not home, or moved out of town, enjoy! Now stop by the GMG tent and party with us!!!

Jenn Cullen is a Super FOB of GMG.
We like to give her a hard time when she says she will be at the next GMG event. Sometimes she would show up, some times she would have to work or fill in for somebody at a couple of local businesses. Always an excuse.
She’s a hard worker who can take a beating from the GMG Authors. Also she has commented on a lot of posts.
Commenting on our posts on GMG helps give us a clue on what the readers like and not like.
Don’t be afraid to comment. No one will think less of you if you leave a critical comment. Except me.
Thanks for being there Jenn for all your support through good times and Bad.
From Jenn Cullen;
“I’m now the proud owner of three original Paul Frontiero Sr. Oil Paintings! And his son Paul, also a great artist in his own right (I have a few of his pieces, too), came to my house to show me the collection for sale and also made me my own special Art, Rocks! mug which I will treasure always! So excited to get these framed and hung.”
In my opinion Jenn got the best that was left of the small paintings.
so representative of “Old Gloucester”
From Nicole Myers;
My son and I found your art rock in magnolia! We love it :)”
“The “Art, Rock’s!” The Fort” was found a day after I left it.
Toby Pett waited a day to give others a chance.
Email From Toby:
“Thank you. ..I waited a whole day…As no one else claimed it, I now have my second. ..perhaps I will loan them to a museum for an exhibition. ..” Toby Pett
I think I have to be dead Toby before a museum would ever display any of my work
Thanks for responding Toby!
Mr Murphy indicated he had been stopped by law enforcement several times while Whitey was hiding, now he is happy he has been convicted and behind bars.

The Wicked Tuna’s “Hard Merchandise”
I caught the Hard Merchandise from the TV Show Wicked Tuna unloading a few Bluefin Tuna at the State fish Pier this Summer. One of the Tv crew members said the shows they’re filming will air in February 2015. So you may get lucky and watch them film on the Gloucester waterfront. The Hard Merchandise has been fishing for years here in Gloucester way before the TV show. They dock at the wharf behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck. I’m sure all their Fans will enjoy these photo’s. Video’s coming soon.
While I was trying to shoot a video on the best shovel, and shove techniques to use, the FEDEX truck got stuck on my street here in the Bayview area of Gloucester. After some attempts to dig them out, a very kind local named Forest comes up the other direction behind me. We came up with a plan, then I grabbed my cam. BAAAM….#becausegloucester
Stay tuned for the shovel video!!

After the success of Ken Kesey’s novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken and this band of Merry Pranksters drove from The West Coast to the East in 1964. Fifty years later, on September 24, 2014, they came to Gloucester, and had breakfast at Charlie’s Place https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charlies-Place/111697215533360. My friends were there…
Sharon photographed the Furthur crew at breakfast. She and husband Chuck gave them their table for the bus crew. Ken Kesey’s son Zane sits center waving his hand. Sharon and Chuck leave tomorrow for home. I got to know what wonderful and generous people they are… and like me, they’re adventurous. Fair winds and smoothe seas, my friends forever.
