Cape Ann Bus Tale #1

I took the CATA bus to work this morning, and my driver was Gloucester’s Eddie Salah. Knowing that he owned George’s Coffee Shop on Washington Street at one time, I asked him if he was a good cook. “Hell no, I can’t even scramble an egg! Gloucester attorney Mike Faherty ordered a scrambled egg breakfast, and I had  folded it over like an omlette. Mike showed me how to cook it right, and I’m sure he remembers that hilarious event. That was about 40 years ago, when I was a 17 year old trainee.” Eddie is one of the most colorful and entertaining people I’ve met, and a good driver too! Today, Georges is one of the best breakfast joints around, and is still owned and operated by a Salah. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=george’s+coffee+shop+gloucester+ma&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&gws_rd=ssl

  1. Eddie is SUCH a terrific guy. Funny, engaging and honest to a fault. He makes my tedious trip to work much more fun. One of Gloucester’s finest.

  2. Fred,

    I love the walks back – and words spoken from within actual experience are always – the best! The joked with me calling me a sponge it’s served me well for 60 years old or it that young :-).

    Thanks Dave & Kim 🙂
