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:

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,

Happy Fiesta! Bob really is in the picture representing–and exploring Historic Route 66.

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!
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.

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
Those sneaky quiet Priuses (Prii??), who knew they were kind to SUV’s!
But for the grace of a Prius..

I met Nichole at the sox opener this afternoon, she wanted to represent GMG, so here is the photo I shot…REPRESENTING FROM FENWAY! GO SOX!
See you around,
Hi Joey –
Wonder if the GMG homey has been to the Alamo. In case the answer is no, here are some photos of a rather worn sticker in San Antonio to remember the Alamo.
Hope this email finds you well! This past week we spent some time in our favorite island in FL, Anna Maria Island. This island is just outside of Bradenton. While we were there we met up with our good friend Dee. Dee accompanied Diana Nyad during her swim from Cuba to Florida. Not only was she part of her team, but they used her boat as the guide boat for Diana during her swim. Needless to say we found a new home for GMG sticker! Here are the pictures of the boat. Thought you’d enjoy this.
Huge thanks as always goes to Beth Swan who designed and Frank Ciolino and Shewsberry who print the official GMG Sticker which we give away free when you send in a self stamped and addressed envelope.
Free GMG Gloucester Sticker
As long as supplies last if any GMG folks want a bumper sticker but can’t drop down the dock, just send a self addressed and stamped envelope longer then 7 and a half inches and I’ll drop one in the mail for you.
Send the self addressed and stamped envelope to the dock at 95 East Main St Gloucester Ma 01930 care of Joey (put my name in big letters to make sure it gets to me)
Well the move is if you want to take the sticker to a whole new level is to cut an outline of the blue around the edges equidistant all the way around and round off the corners.
It gives The Sticka a totally die cut custom look.
Send in your stamped and addressed envelope to get a new sticker. Any self respecting FOB will get in on this.

What, No GMG Cap? Only thing that woulda made that photo better.

Hey Dorthe- that’s a looong way from Switzerland!
My husband, son and I went to see the NE Revolution play their first of two games against Sporting Kansas City. The Rev’s won, 2-1!
MLS games are a bargain: 23 bucks a ticket & free parking!
