Barry,
We're heading down for the Sunday events. Got a crew finishing up a bunch of work today on Adventure. When you come to Gloucester Tuesday night stop down and check her out. Big progress this past month. Looking forward to seeing Moe again. Hope we can sing a few of Mary's tunes...especially Astoria's Bar. Kind of blew her mind in Mystic this year as Joanne and I knew several of the other coast's MG songs. And they are the best. Looking forward to another great festival seeing the Johnson Girls, Deb, Ken Sweeney, Jon Campbell and Anita Best. I had a Best who was one of my great uncles who married my Newfie aunt Lucy after her first husband was drowned fishing. He also had the same fate. Wish we could make it today, but paint, rigging and wood work all require assistance. Kind of hoping to see Jon or Moe drop by some Tuesday evening at our sing in Gloucester. We will be starting to ready our Christmas songs soon so we can do more carols this year up and down Main Street. Hopefully Peter Marston will make it home from China so he can participate. Kind of nice to be half Newfie and half Portagee...saltwater runs in the veins with hard work and just a tad of strange humor thrown in....right!!!!Life is good. This is a great festival and New Bedford should be really proud to have such wonderful performers play and attend. Readying for Portsmouth next weekend.
Sunday...best to all. Ken...bringing the box fo ya'.
Doryman and his mate.
