Some Kind Words From Churchmouse

Hi Joey,

I was aware that GMG has been around for approximately 15 years, but couldn’t remember the exact date of your initial “offering.”

My husband and I had visited Gloucester every chance we got beginning in 1996 and when we retired in 2005 we just knew we wanted to begin living our golden years here in Gloucester.

Unfortunately in November 2006 we had to move back to NY state and it broke my heart. But I discovered that you had begun GMG and I immediately subscribed. It was a way to feel like we still lived here. I’ve been following you and all your contributors evah since! Luckily we were able to move back here permanently at the end of 2007. What you wrote yesterday about everything that Gloucester and Cape Ann have to offer is what drew me and my husband here. We have never regretted the move.

Over the years your contributors have changed and your focus has broadened; i.e., your use of all the technology tools such as the podcast, “iron plover” etc. That is a good thing. Your contributors have focused on their special interests and that has added to the multi-layers that are Gloucester. It has also shown a spotlight on all the talented people who call this piece of heaven home.

I hope you continue showcasing this wonderful place for many years to come.

Hope you and your families (both GMG one and personal one) have a happy and healthy 2023.

Fondly, Karen (aka churchmouse)

Picnics, promenade, and polar plunge- there were fresh starts everywhere we turned.

Charlie’s Place for Lunch

We had not been to Charlie’s Place on Bass Ave in a while and it felt like the perfect choice for lunch during holiday week. The neighborly atmosphere and reliable food are what drew me that day and every time we go. The service is friendly and efficient (as it needs to be with people waiting most times we go). There’s something on the menu for almost everyone. Jim started with fish chowder. I had the Gloucester Fish Sandwich and Jim got a favorite grilled cheese and tomato. Honestly, I was looking forward to dessert most of all so I ordered blueberry pie. When it arrived, it wasn’t a photogenic slice but you can see from the remains that it was a “real” blueberry pie. Stay up to date with specials etc on their Facebook page. Happy 2023 to all! We look forward to a great year of sharing what’s best around Gloucester!

Happy New Year
