1st Annual Cape Ann Easter Bunny Drop From Drayton Freeman

Hello,

We thought you might enjoy our 1st Annual Cape Ann Easter Bunny Drop™ which we held on our balcony opposite St Peter Square in Gloucester.

Attached is the pic of the Easter Bunnies (they aren’t real bunnies) lined up awaiting the perilous drop and video of them being launched off the balcony and parachuting safely to earth.

Keep up the great work with your blog!

Mikey Wins Plastic Head on Small Animal Photo Contest!

Mandy Leone Moffett on behalf of her son Mikey submitted three photos of “Squirrel With Plastic Horse Head”.

Contest rules here.

hungry squirrel acting like a horse's patoity

That is an actual Cape Ann Grey Squirrel wearing a plastic horse head. No details but I have a feeling there is some Gloucester Market Basket Jiff Peanut Butter inside that squirrel head.

Maybe some peanuts over here.

Smuckers Grape jam would be nice. With a name like Smuckers, it’s got to be good for a squirrel.

Contest rules state that entries had to be photographed in March and sent in on April 1st. So Mikey wins first second and third place. That makes three Rubber Ducks which Mikey can pick up down at Joey’s Dock or at the next GMG Mug Up.

If there are any late entries there might be consolation prizes.

Well played Mikey, well played.

2014 Rocky Neck Polar Plunge

The Look Here On BJ’s Face About Sums It Up!!!

Anyone that bailed on it this year because of the arctic temps can just erase themselves from the past few years of mild Polar Plunge’s.  This Year’s Plungers Earned It!

Huge Thanks To Coastal Dog For Sponsoring 5 of their Killer Compression?Dry Swimsuits.  No sooner was I out of the water with a little waggle and the suit was practically dry.  No sand stuck in my butt crack due to the inner compression short lining and I’ve never ever ever worn such comfortable swim trunks.  I won’t ever wear anything else but Coastal Dog Apparel Swim trunks.  Check them out here- www.coastaldogapparel.com

2013 Gloucester MA Lobster Trap Tree Being Built

Bex submits-

All the traps are on loan from local lobstermen.

Volunteers dedicate a weekend to building the tree.

Children paint buoys as “ornaments” to decorate the tree. Buoy Painting is December 14 and the Tree Lighting Ceremony is 4:30 – 5:00 on December 14.

When the tree comes down in January, the buoys are saved and auctioned off as a fundraiser for Cape Ann Art Haven on January 24th @ Gloucester Cruiseport.

Thank you to Awesome Gloucester for awarding Cape Ann Art Haven $1000 towards the Lobster Trap Tree and Buoy Painting Week!

Throwback Thursday: “You Gotta Love Him!”

My contribution for Throwback Thursday.

I did this post below back in February 2010. I used to bust Joey’s Balls a lot back when I first started Posting for GMG. I used to wait until Late at Night or when Joey went on his Winter vacations. GMG was a little different back then. I think I quit GMG Three times my first year after Joey started censoring my posts and comments that the “readers” might find offensive. What a kill joy. Well stay tuned. Joey’s vacation times start in about a month.

 

You Gotta Love Him!

No Matter What He’s Doing,

Joey’s Always Working Hard To Bring You Great Content!

Thanks Joey!

Found on the Hard Drive Plein Air Painting 2007

Found on the Hard Drive Plein Air Painting 2007

Randy from Florida put out a call on the message board “Wetcanvas” back in 2007 to find someone to paint with in New England. His Daughter was invited to take a class at Harvard so he would have some time on his hands to paint.

I invited him to Gloucester to go painting. We ended up at Loblolly Cove in Rockport. We had a good time painting the area. Randy painted some Houses on his right and I painted Straitsmouth Island when a red lobster boat came just in time to be part of my painting.

I sold my painting at EJ’s Gallery a couple of years ago.

I love painting outside but I try to find a place where there’s low people traffic. I’m a little shy when it comes to painting outside. We had a great day and the Rockport Police only charged me $25.00 to park. :)
