The Infamous One Shares This Slideshow of Empire Fish Cutting Redfish. Anyone know any of the people in the photos?
Thanks Fred- it’s nice to share these with the community rather than sit in a box somewhere never seeing the light of day.
Your contributions here have been outstanding!

Tiger Marsten and Co will be getting to work this week.
There was a great photo in the news this morning;
two older men facing each other on an Athens street
having an animated discussion about the debt crises in Greece.
The man on the right was bent toward the other,
his left fist clenched and his right jabbing the air near
the other man’s ear.
The talker on the left had his back arched and both arms
were pointed skyward with open hands facing the other speaker ,
a dismissive gesture that said, “oh, stop the nonsense!”
It was quite unlike the calm and gentle scene
I happened upon while leaving the library
after returning a nearly overdue book.
Down Dale Avenue, about fifty feet away, a man and a woman
were quietly speaking to each other over the fence
that runs along the sidewalk.
The woman’s head was comfortably supported by her bent arm
which was propped up by the top rung of the fence.
But I’ll not write about the utility of fences;
that, as I remember, has already been done quite well.
The two stood in a spotlight of sun
framed by a bending tree trunk , and by shadows
on nearby buildings and those cast by the fence
aimed at the sidewalk.
They were relaxed and attentive to what the other had to say.
It was a conversation, listening as well as speaking.
Of course, what they were talking about is none of my business,
but I bet it wasn’t the debt crisis in Greece.

A big thank-you to Joey for the honor of becoming an official contributor to Good Morning Gloucester! I’m kicking off my posts with an event that Joey had publicized earlier on the blog.
Last night’s “Early Elf Open House” at Bodin Historic Photo & Fine Art was well worth stopping in for. The art and photos were as beautiful as could be asked for, and the short rib chili from Passports was out of this world! Here are a few photos.
It was a great evening!
