Honky Tonk Women @ Seaport Grille Tomorrow (WED)

This just in from the gals:

We’ve been invited back to SEAPORT GRILLE Wednesday, 11/28 starting at 5pm on Roger’s St., one of Gloucester’s most popular waterfront restaurants. Please come enjoy the show and maybe do a bit of local holiday shopping afterwards.  Honky Tonk Women have added many new songs most of which are requested favorites and we have launched our first website.  We hope to entertain you soon.

Sheila, Caroline, Barbara and Elaine

A dozen venues with Live Music Tonight ~ and 2 of them are floating!

Being a waterfront community, you’d expect Cape Ann to have plenty of restaurants, pubs & live music venues on the water — and we do.  Tonight we also have two that are IN the water — literally.  The Schooner Thomas E. Lannon is hosting a bluegrass sunset sail at 6pm featuring local legend Allen Estes with Gloucester’s best bluegrass musicians and Gloucester’s newest schooner, Ardelle, built by Howard Burnham (who build the Lannon) is hosting a sail at the same time with doo-wop/oldies girl group Honky Tonk Women of Glocuester.

Now, there are plenty of choices for those of you who wish to remain on land, from jazz standards, reggae, rock, funk, soul, motown — you name it.  See the full live music lineup here.

Hi Joey,    I am resending the short story we talked about.  I would like you to take a picture of the place I am referring to.  It is the Railroad Tracks at Cedar Street .My house is 112 Pleasant Street and the train runs very close to my fence. My husband and I bought this property seven years ago and it was in bad of need of repair inside and out. He passed away three years ago. I came close to loosing this property and was not able to finish the work he started along the tracks. The MBTA put up a sign in his name for the work he did complete he loved the train.Our intent was to clean this area of all the trash and debris and place flowers there. He even had the neighbors helping to pick up the trash (tons) we disposed of it at our expense. A year ago I meet a woman who not only became a very dear friend she had given me lessons on gardening. She has asked me to help her scale down her beautiful garden and in return has given me many beautiful flowers, trees, shrubs, bulbs.I have planted them along the tracks my husband started to beautify. Because of her knowledge and generosity I have been able to completed what he started.It the most sorrowful time of my life I found someone who was willing to share knowledge, generosity and friendship with someone she had just met and barley knew.We now share gardening, music witch is something my husband and I shared, she is teaching me to play his guitar, and we share music as a business as well as personal entertainment.It is so wonderful to know there are people out there who care and share their whole being.I could never thank Sheila Jones Schrank enough for all she has given me.But you can be sure I do thank her every chance I get.
