Reading people’s comments freaking out about Donna’s glitch posting as if she did it on purpose is something else…

Got a bunch of these…

Knowing how devious and evil Donna is, I’m sure it was intentional and she’s sitting in a dark room laughing like an evil villain. Muah Muah Muah!

Jeffrey Marshall

The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to host Gone … Fishing, a special exhibition of recent work by Gloucester artist Jeffrey Marshall on display from August 10, 2018 through November 25, 2018.

Jackie Bennet, who works at Corliss in Ipswich, shares recent sightings of a male Monarch butterfly and caterpillar, and a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird on the crocosmia.
