More Mulhaupt Gloucester Harbor

Gloucester Harbor, a central panel from one of Mulhaupt’s monumental mural masterworks, has been on display at Gloucester’s O’Maley school for decades. The center panel was commissioned under the auspices of the WPA-era programs and ultimately moved from its original site at Central Grammar to City Hall in 1972, and then again to O’Maley. Other sections of this mural were disconnected and dispersed within City Hall in 1972, and not all on display, which has confounded understanding of the sections individually and as a whole. All will be reunited one day–temporarily or permanently– back to the artist’s original, immersive art experience intent. Here are several photos of the mural to compare with the artist’s treatment of the harbor scene at auction.

COVID Vaccine Joy or Spring Fever?

A friend shared this clip recently and labeled it “Vaccine Side Effects After Your Second Dose”. Looks like a dance of joy to me, and although I didn’t see reactions quite as animated following second doses at the clinic I recently worked, the joy was totally apparent……..

Things Joey said when he got the family a cat:

  • The kids are 100% responsible for cleaning the litterbox and feeding the cat.
  • The cat would not sleep in the bedroom.
  • The cat has not had any accidents.
  • The cat does not scratch the door to be let outside.
  • The cat does certain things to communicate.
  • How does your animal communicate that it wants to be fed or wants to do something in particular?
