Joey C confession- While I admire the spunk of the Sea Shanty crazies they drive me up a wall when they fire up in the middle of a bar and all thoughts of holding a conversation are out the window.  I’m also fairly certain that when the boys were out fishing the Grand Banks they weren’t strumming any ukuleles.

Cool reptilian encounter! from Ann Kennedy

Enjoying the local book stores today, we found that Toad Hall was hosting the Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team.  Our daughter from Chicago is visiting us (yippee!) and here she is with the nice ladies and their snakes.   Very informative and fun!

One thought on “Community Photos 9/24/12

  1. Joey may be right about there not being any ukuleles aboard the Grand Banks schooners, but bear in mind that the uke was brought to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants from Madeira and Cape Verde in the 1880s. It is not improbable that some of the Portuguese who settled in Gloucester came with their ukes and perhaps brought them on board their schooners to help pass what little idle time they had.

    Does anyone have any info on this?
