Linda Colman here, your loyal FOB from Ann Arbor, Michigan.
I am about to make a HUGE change in my life! After having called Michigan “home” for all the 64 years of my life, I’m pulling up roots and moving to Massachusetts at the end of April.
I have been invited to stay with fellow FOB Jane Gibbs and her significant other, my brother Bill, in their home in Newburyport.
I’m significantly downsizing by giving things away, selling furniture at a couple of consignment shops, donating useful items, and I’ve shipped 16 boxes of stuff I can’t live without to my new home in Newburyport!
I look forward to seeing you, Paulie Walnuts, EJ, Ed, Paul Morrison and the rest of the GMG crowd at mug ups, Nights on the Neck, block parties, and all the other great activities in Gloucester.
I would like to relocate to Gloucester if I can find work there, so….. IF THERE ARE ANY PICTURE FRAMING SHOPS LOOKING FOR A FANTASTIC, EXPERIENCED, CAPABLE, FRIENDLY EMPLOYEE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!
Wow!! This is a big step for me and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!! Linda Colman
Aloha Joey! I’m having a fantastic vacation on The Big Island of
Hawaii. Took my GMG sticker along for the ride. Linda Colman
FOB Jane Gibbs writes-
I must say, the lobstas you picked out for me, Linda, and Bill were outstanding! Delicious!!!! Thanks so much!
BTW, Linda really enjoyed the Lobsta Do J
Joey! I just framed my latest acquisition and added it to the Joey Ciaramitaro Masterpiece Collection. Looks spectacular, don’t you think? Linda
Well Linda you certainly picked out some very “Gloucester” themed photos! I thank you for your support!
Hi Joey! I’m back in Michigan after having had a fantastic (but too brief) visit to MA. The highlight of my trip was the July 31st "Mug Up" at EJ’s studio and GMG Gallery. You, Ed, Paul M., Paul F., and everyone else in attendance provided me with a warm and enthusiastic welcome. I felt right at home. Jane Gibbs, my brother Bill and I tried in vain to attend the Thursday Aug. 4th "Night on the Neck" but couldn’t find a parking spot anywhere!!! We had no idea how well attended it would be and it looks as though we missed a terrific evening. I am more certain than ever that living in Gloucester is in my future. Thanks to you and everyone from GMG for helping make my trip so much fun! Linda Colman

Instructions in the right hand column of the website for the address.
Linda got three of my photos and framed ‘em up nicely. She got number 1,3 and 15 from this set that is offered for sale
Hi Joey! In defense of the high cost of custom framing, which you’ve mentioned a couple of times recently on GMG and which is the business I’m in, ya gotta admit these photos look like a million bucks! Note the cool texture on the wood moulding. I can’t wait to hang them up! Merry Christmas, Linda C.
They look like paintings! Well done with the framing Linda
Greetings from Ann Arbor!

GO GOOD MORNING GLOUCESTER!
Cheers, Linda Colman
Dear Capt. Joey, It was great meeting you this morning! Many thanks for the sticker! Will send you a photo of it in front of Michigan Stadium. You asked me what I liked about GMG, and I wanted to let you know that it is like a mini-vacation every morning! Thanks again! Linda
