  1. Love the West Nineteenth St Pic! Are you who I think you are?

    If you are not who I think you are then completely disregard this comment and please do not regard me as a crazy internet person.

    Nice blog BTW

    • Good Morning Joey! Ding ding ding. Guilty as charged, I’m related to those guys. Good Morning Gloucester is stellar. I would love to chat with you about blogging sometime – you are a master! Thanks for swinging by.

  2. I was 99% certain it was you, lol

    Let’s plan on you swinging by the dock for an interview when I get back into town after the 16th of May.

  3. fantastic. we’ll catch up then.
