Re-Opening: Plenty of Help From My Friends

It was the Stealth Reopening of Bodin Historic Photo. Late this Saturday morning I was driven to my gallery on Main Street, Gloucester after 4 months in hospitals and rehab. I was safely wheeled in, and proceeded to organize the desk area. My friends and assistants for the day cleaned, swept, and arranged items in the showroom. They also took out a good amount of trash and recycling. Thanks Donna, Valerie, Kathy, and Janet. Also rewarding was a Virgilios Eggplant Supreme sub.

The visit was rewarding, stressful, and tiring. This was a big step and a test of my rehabilitation. It's difficult to operate a gallery from a wheelchair or walker. Tomorrow it's back to physical therapy, continuing down the road toward walking. The gallery will be open Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm, and more days as my stamina and mobility improve. My next visit will earn me a spicy Italian meal from Virgilio's,  a third generation Gloucester bakery. Pictured above on cover: L-R: Donna, Janet, and Valerie.

Happy, Happy Birthday Baby

Andromeda Emmeline Lammott is 4 years old today. DOB 9/11/09 at 11:11 pm in Chicago, IL. Her mother is Vignette, and Lucas is her dad. I spent most of the day with little Andromeda on Monday, while Vignette and Peggy of the POP Gallery gave my gallery a window "makeover." It was a birthday present from them. Delightful all around, so happy birthday to little Andromeda.

They're picking up this 1884 Cape Ann map tomorrow to take home to Florida. They'll be the only ones in 32162 to have it. The snow birds from 01930 will be envious!
