Andrews Point today ready for Surfin’?

A lone surfer with board was looking at it but sense prevailed. At low tide there was no way to get into the water without having your brains bashed out by Cape Ann granite.

Also included are some shots of some cute plump birds dabbling in the rocks. Same ones we saw at the end of Dogbar Breakwater last week. They are amazing little flyers in formation.

This is an old postcard sent by Sylvia DeBoever (you remember Sylvia, Sarah Lawrence’s niece from the 66 year letter post) to Fred Bodin.  Fred sent it to me so you could all enjoy it.  Thanks Sylvia.  Hope your knee surgery went well.

Meet Mr. Pumpkin

…if you haven’t already.

Mr. Pumpkin allowed me to interrupt his nap time for this photo. He is very friendly and relaxed (or at least he was when I visited).  He lives at Gloucester Music (210 Main St.), a store that sells CDs, LPs, instruments, sheet music, and other musical supplies and accessories.

I’m not even sure what to say except- Dodgeball Sunday Noon Pulled Pork Bikinis Speedos Action Fun Music Beer Charity Farm Bar & Grille–Any Questions?

Just got this video from an anonymous source.   Looks like they want in…

This is the letter they dropped off with it:

“Me and my boy gonna enter that competition bikini underwear thing.  We don’t know what it is but we be dodgen stuff all the time (snowballs, bottles, bullets, busted women that are all up on us).    We’re called “Team Deralick Our Motha%&$!!@$% Dodgeballs” it’s been our street/team name for years and years.  It’s only the 2 of us but we are good and don’t need any more people…we also can’t find anybody that is looking for teammates.  We’ll put an ad on craigslist if we gotta.  Otherwise the two of us are real real good.  We are ready, our uniforms are what you see – it’s normally how we roll too.  How much we win if we win?”

-See you on the court.
