Super K Photo
Attached is a photo of me and my wife Cathy at a recent Washington Nationals game in DC. I grew up in Magnolia and graduated from GHS in 1966 and am still a Sox fan but living in northern Virginia for the past 27 years the Nationals have become my National League team. I love GMG and it helps me keep up with things in my old home town. Keep up the great job.
Just finishing a two week holiday in old blighty. Came over for an automotive event (55th anniversary of the Mini) and figured a weekend wasn’t enough.
I went all the way out to Land’s End. If you’re ever over here, don’t bother. Total tourist trap.
Anyhow, having a blast touring the Cotswolds & sampling their beers and ciders.
Sorry the GMG sticker is so small in the picture. It’s hard to get a total stranger to frame a shot properly.
Our son Ted was recently in China and represented Good Morning Gloucester in Tiananmen Square, Beijing.
Love the blog – thanks (!)

In checking the Schooner Festival schedule for friends who are visiting during that time, I realized the event will be here very soon. Sponsored by Maritime Gloucester, tickets aboard Gloucester’s gorgeous hometown schooners for the Parade of Sails can be purchased by clicking these links: Schooner Thomas E. Lannon and Schooners Ardelle and Roseway. Click here for special viewing opportunities at the Beauport Sleeper McCann Museum.
Al Bezanson provided the names of the schooners, in order of appearance:

My beautiful wife Wendy and I representing GMG along the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.
This was a family effort as our daughter Kayla took the photo.
If you’re an avid reader of GMG you read the blog post by Lisa Steinocher-
Well the picture above provides your answer
Lisa writes yesterday from home-
Back on Southern soil and had boiled peanuts and barbecue ribs for my fourth instead of clam chowder and Virgilio’s rolls ( hand cut with sesame seeds like they always use to make:)
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to visit with my dad, daughter and me. And I can’t thank you enough for my stickers. I really appreciate it! I’m very proud of them:)
Ill continue to enjoy staying connected to my Gloucester roots through your wonderful website.
Take care and best wishes,
Lisa Steinocher (aka the missed placed Yankee who lives too far inland)

And you thought mayo was bad on a lobster roll!
We were at the race track in Epping, NH. Thought you’d get a kick out of the sign.
Way To Represent!
This is my new all time favorite Homie Represents! photos bumping off Doug Brendel’s KGB Headquarters Represent and Great Wall of China. Thanks Liz and thanks Frank Ciolino and Shewsberry for making the stickas for us!
Homie is ready for USA Ghana
Elizabeth Neumeier submits-
We just got back from a great trip to Scotland and spent a couple days on the Knoydart peninsula – only accessible by an 18 mile hike in from the nearest road or by boat. It has the Old Forge Pub – billed as the most remote pub in the United Kingdom.

Still says “out o’ Gloucester”

On a boat in Kagoshima observing fish being fed in their pens. Active volcano behind me.
Farm caught fish being packaged fresh.
Faithfully wearing my GMG hat in Vashkovo village, Ushachi district, Vitebsk region, Republic of Belarus! (That’s a “sanatorium” in the background.) Helping needy people and having a blast! See you at NewThing.net!
Greetings from Colorado. My sister, Cynthia Kennedy Sam sent these with comment “from Joey personally”. Thank you. I assume you know who “John Elway” is. Best wishes
