Did You Know? (All the Way From LA)

That brother and sister, Will and Molly Cox came all the way from LA looking for Joey C. because they love Good Morning Gloucester and think he’s cool?  He wasn’t around, so they got the consolation prize of a GMG sticker and are now are on GMG themselves.  They are here visiting family (the Bell family) near Good Harbor Beach.  Will has been reading the blog for about a year, and says his Dad reads it too.  They are leaving tomorrow, but will be back, so we’ll have to hook up a meet-up with Joey for them then.
