Mary Chapin Carpenter

Mary Chapin Carpenter. Reposted 2013 BF.

“I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” was written by Burt Bachrach and Hal David for the 1968 show “Promises, Promises” starring Jerry Orbach.  This version is lovely and is from the soundtrack of the 1997 blockbuster movie “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” Mary Chapin Carpenter (b. 1958) is a country singer/songwriter who has won five Grammys.  The soundtrack is a very good compendium of popular singers and styles.

Nichole is from a family of fishermen who have worked the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, in southwest Florida, for many years.  Her great uncle, the original Capt. Johnny,  started a business in 1950 selling the catch-of-the-day at the side of the road on MacGregor Blvd. in Fort Myers.  It’s the same location where they are doing business today.

John Lindquist’s parents came to Florida in the 1930’s,  and John and his brothers became commercial fishermen, working the Punta Rassa region.  Many of the commercial fish back then such as flounder and redfish are now designated game fish, so the markets in the Fort Myers area  don’t carry them any longer.

Every morning, the local fishermen drop off the day’s catch at Capt.  Johnny’s where we buy our fish from Nichole and her family.  The catch  usually consists of black or red  grouper, snapper, Gulf shrimp (medium, large and jumbo)  and local lobster  (which is mostly tail and small claws).  They also have clams, oysters  and crabs . The only outliers are the scallops which come from Massachusetts. The seafood is always fresh and delicious.

A cook on the premises makes take-out food that includes some superb gumbo, fried shrimp, shrimp cocktail, and “the best key lime pie.”  Captiva and Pine Islands, nearby, used to be home to key lime plantations, so they ought to know how to make key lime pies.

MARY CAREWE.   From Carousel.    Album: “The Very Best of Rodgers and Hammerstein.”

9:30 am.  Governor says that flooding will be mild. Awaiting flood reports from the OG southside.  Bands of snow will create waxing and waning snow fall all day into the evening.

9:39 am  Report from Rick Cuttrell:

Snow:  Severe blizzard continues into tonight with heavy snow through this morning and then snow at varying intensities this afternoon and evening.

There is still the likelihood that sleet will mix with the snow over coastal sections of Monmouth and Ocean Counties for a period later this morning and early afternoon.  Any sleet will change back to snow this afternoon.

Snow will taper off and end between 9pm and midnight tonight.

Coastal Monmouth/coastal northern Ocean, including the Neptune area:  18-24 inches (will mix with sleet for a period Saturday morning)

Flooding:     No flooding reported from OG Southside.  Sunday morning will be  1/2 to 2 feet above normal and will produce minor to moderate street flooding in the usual flood prone areas.

11:30 am.  From Neptune Mothership, land of good and evil—-:    PLEASE stay off the roads.

As of 8:30 AM, 10.5″ of snow has fallen in Neptune.  It is possible that we will receive another foot of snow between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM with snow falling at a rate of 3″ per hour at times.

Snow plowing continues, however our efforts are being hampered by flooding along the Shark River and dozens of vehicles stuck in the roadways.

4 pm:  from Megan Williamson on Asbury Avenue:    “The winds have been relentless blowing up from green way. But credit should be given to Neptune Township. They have run a plow down the street a couple of times an hour since about 2 am.”
