Great article by Billy Baker front page Boston Globe July 20, 2019 here
This amazing family was in the parking lot at Good Harbor Beach. They had collected a trash bag full of garbage from around the lot. Dad Robert explained that because they love Good Harbor Beach so much, and go often during the summer, they wanted to give back.
Our DPW does an incredible job keeping the beach and lot clean however, it’s impossible for any one entity to keep up with the amount of litter that happens on our beaches. It takes a village, and it is people like Sveltana, Dimitri, and Robert that are making a real difference.
*Although I wrote down the names of the kids, somehow the message to myself was deleted. I think their names are spelled correctly, but if not, please write. Thank you 🙂
Carry In, Carry Out
Photographing shorebirds early today and this Homie arrives on the scene, loudly announcing his catch. Before I could turn on my movie camera, he swallowed the whole lobster, in one big gulp! You could see the sharp edges of the lobster as it went down his gullet. I predict a Homie with a tummy ache.
The tremendous variety of seaweed currently covering Pebble Beach captures a wealth of sustenance for migrating shorebirds (and Homies).
Sanderlings, Sandpipers, Semiplamated Plovers, and one Snowy Egret at Pebble Beach today, September 12, 2017.
“Polly-Five-Toe the Gull” started visiting the Thomas E. Lannon in 2014, it returned again this year. Capt. Heath has become friends with “Polly-5-Toe” as you can see in the slide show below. Polly-5-Toe loves oyster crackers and sits on the back of the Lannon, or on Capt. Heath’s hand to enjoy her crackers.
1,630 is The number of posts I have done since I was invited to join GMG as an Author. Who knew I had so much on my mind. For the most part it’s been fun. Sometimes I get a little carried away. I still have my comments censored by Joey. He tries to save me from myself. During my first couple of years I would love to bust Joey’s Balls when he went on vacation. Back then he didn’t have the time to check the late night posts. So I took advantage of it. Posting joey’s head on a picture of a guy taking a dump was my favorite.
It’s a lot of brain work to come up with a daily post and post title to catch the readers attention. Sometimes I’ll take a little break to recharge my brain.
I never thought this blog would last this long. It’s going to be interesting to see what’s next for GMG.
Goodluck Joey and all the GMG Authors!
Here are links to some favorite Posts of mine;
There are so many more. I crack myself up sometimes.
Just google me for more.
Joey’s Invitation He Soon My Regret!
Joey’s Invitation; “Paul, I’m inviting you to officially join the team. All you would need to do is sign up for a free wordpress account and I have it set up so you would be an author like Mike Lindberg , Laurie Lufkin etc.”
Thanks for the Invite to be a GMG Author Joey. It’s an Honor, but I don’t know.
Here are some of my thoughts and questions
Is this an everyday thing? that may be tough.
What happens if you miss a scheduled post?
I think I have enough Anxiety in my Life.
I don’t have a lot to say!
I could say something you and I may regret!
What if I ruin GMG’s reputation? It could happen.
What’s the chances of my Wife putting out more because of this?
What’s the chance of me getting punched from this?
It could be fun!
It could be a disaster!
I could use it to promote the visual arts in gloucester!! and maybe get a kickback. (just kidding)
I could use it to help Promote Visual Artist’s in this tough economy.
I could use it to promote my stuff!
I could make a complete fool of myself! I know! That sounds silly, Does’nt it?
See Joey, that’s what goes through my mind.
DO YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE LIKE ME THAT COULD POSSIBLY RUIN GMG’S REPUTATION???????????????
AND I THINK THIS WOULD BE MY FIRST POST.
LOVE , PAUL

Some Past Favs-
So buckle your chinstraps.
What Up Homie Is Comin Back- Better Than Ever. And for any racist that says the word Homie is associated solely with Gangbangers check variations of the definition from Wikipedia-
In an early use of the term “homie”, Ella Mae Morse, a white singer, in the original 1946 version of the song “House of Blue Lights” asks, “What’s that homie?” to Freddie Slack, the writer of the song.
In 1992, the Latino rap hip hop group called A Lighter Shade of Brown released the recording “Homies” on their Hip Hop Locos album, which describes what a homie is in the Latino community. The status of “homie” is similar to “my best friend” or “someone I can trust”, as in, “This is my homie Alex, we’ve known each other since grade school”, or “I won’t be around this afternoon, but you can give the money to my homie James, and he’ll give it to me later.”
