Just wanted to let you know that Last Stop will re-open for the season on Monday March 1st! We have missed all of our great customers & can’t wait to see everyone! Soups on!!
PS Finally sending you the pictures of Ted & I & GMG from London this summer!
I bought this desk last weekend. I don’t have much information on it, but here are several photos that might give someone enough to identify the style, period, wood, etc. I talked to David Cox and Dick Davis at Dave’s antique shop downtown and got some possible info.
Click on any photo and if you click on “all sizes”, you’ll get a much closer view.
– The hardware is NOT brass.
– The wood is probably mahogany.
– It may have been built in the early 1900’s.
– It looks like it is Governor Winthrop style.
– It is signed on a piece of paper on the back.
I’d love to find out more about this and how to proceed with the refinishing. Most of it is down to the bare wood, but there has been some repair done with filler near the top and the cubbies inside need to be sanded. I’d like to do this myself, but I’m not sure how. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance! —–Sharon
From Ally O’Connor-
For one night only in 2010, on Saturday, March 6, Flanagan’s Wake comes to the Gloucester Stage Company. An interactive Irish wake that magically transports you to the Emerald Isle to mourn Flanagan, dear friend and cousin. A cast of actors play the roles of Flanagan’s family and friends, toastin’ , singin’ and dancin’ with all the audience members – the “American cousins”. This brilliant ensemble of Boston area improvisers, including several from Cape Ann and North of Boston, use suggestions from the audience to create improvised songs and stories about the man in the box. Critics call Flanagan’s Wake “hilarious…rich and spontaneous…charming cast” (The Boston Globe), “Dead-funny…a good humored spoof” (Boston Herald) and “The funniest show you’ll ever see” (NBC TV). With an almost sold out show, pre-purchase of remaining tickets is recommended and are $25.00.

Part of the Roof blew off in Thursday’s storm, and also up-rooted a tree on the 13th green at Bass Rocks Golf Course. Some Golfers were happy the tree is gone, but Tracey the owner of the motel was not thrilled about the roof. Click on photos to enlarge.
From Kat Valentine at Parlez-Moi Blog-

The lovely ladies from North Shore Dish came down for the interviews we did last week and after we had finished up were off to Fort Square Cafe.
You can read their review here-
This past year and a half has been amazing. When Joey invited me to come aboard as a GMG contributor, I never realized how much my life would change. Not only has it been a great place to show my photography, I get to play. The electronic yodeling pickle, the puffy shirt, all of that!
What a great place to share the good times and the bad! Our GMG family congratulates us as well as supports us when the going gets tough.
I just want to thank Joey, Paul, Frank, Mike, Laurie, Manny, and everyone who makes being on this blog an incredible place to hang out! Big hugs for all!
From someone named John at Ocean Alliance-
Last Stop Variety in east gloucester offers free wifi
also, i have a question about the paint factory, we at the ocean alliance are looking for people who worked there. we want to interview them and set up an area at the paint factory where their stories about the building can be listened to on tape. we need to find people who worked there and i think we could find many via your excellent gmg blog if you would be willing to post a note about our search for ex-employees there. thanks! look forward to hearing from you, love your blog, john
Thanks John, I’ll update GMG WiFi map immediately and hopefully some former Paint Factory will step forth to tell their stories.
I was recently at the Rockport Art Association for the seARTS annual meeting.
As I headed back to the Art building in the back, old memories passed through my head.
Even though it was cold and rainy, the memories of warm summer nights, heading down to Rockport, to attend the RAA dances. Back then it was a great opportunity for locals to meet kids from out-of-state, who were vacationing with their parents. Some of those memories are another story.
It was amazing that they trusted us in the beautiful surroundings of all that art.
This video clip shows some of the local art today, recommend going down and taking a look, and a clip of how teenagers danced in the 60’s. If you recognize yourself in the video, you may want to keep it to yourself at least that is my intention.
Enjoy a blast from the past.
