Say Grace and Dan.  Ocean Grove North End village; 2300.  Asbury Avenue. By Paul Goldfinger © 9/3/17.  Click on image to enlarge the event.

 

I met Grace and Mr. Jones (aka Dan) of OG again yesterday.  They are still very much a couple 9 months later, since “the photo”  on the dark streets of the Grove.

I like this image, and so does Grace who says that it is one of her favorites.  But I hope to photograph them again as more of their story evolves.  —Paul @Blogfinger.

By Paul Goldfinger, Editor  @ Blogfinger.net

Fred Ohleth, a retired 6’4″ NYC police officer, lives in a tent each summer with his wife Linda. His family goes back in the Grove, so he keeps up the tradition.  In the off- season Fred and Linda (no, not Fred and Ginger) have a condo in the Grove.  Fred is the Commander -in-chief of a small band of water, hot dog  and treats sellers who cover a number of events in town, but they are best known for their supply side activities in the shadows of the Great Auditorium on Saturday nights—-tonight it’s the Beach Boys (as if we don’t already have a few of those around.)

Fred and Linda  travel to the wilds of Pennsylvania for those dogs.  You must try one!   These volunteers work hard and party hard when the show is over.

Stop by and say hello to Fred, Linda, Shirley, Barbara, Mike, Ted and all the others who make sure that no one is hungry or thirsty at the GA  (right across the street from the bathrooms. )   And yes, you can take bottled water into the GA.
