Here’s the story:  Jack and Jean went to the Rolling Stones recent concert and they loved it.

When they returned to the Grove, Jean looked up and said, “Gimmie shelter.”

Then  she snapped this photo and they hurried back to Heck Avenue and turned on this song by the Stones:

ROLLING STONES:

“…..and the rain subsided, the cold snap ended, so it was great for taking a walk. The sky was a panorama of dark gray clouds….it was a dramatic sight…as sometimes it is after rainstorms.”

OG beach front on November 17, 2018. By Jean Bredin, Blogfinger staff ©

 

Editor’s note– ( PG)    After the Fishing Club was wiped out by Sandy in 2012,  there was talk that the Club would shift gears and engage in surf fishing.  It initially sounded like a good idea, allowing the members to teach kids how to fish, as they did before.    But that plan never materialized, supposedly because of liability concerns, but it would seem that there must have been similar issues when a large group of kids would assemble on the pier for the very popular event.

So now, 6 years after Sandy, the Fishing Club remains dormant.

Seeing surf fisherman on the OG beach, as in Jean’s photograph, is a fairly unusual sight, perhaps because such fishermen tend to show up very early in the morning. OG, with its jetties, would seem like a good spot for such sport.

Jean made this image at 2 pm.

Her silhouette black and white image is quite dramatic, so we are pleased to exhibit it on Blogfinger.net.

Around town with Miss Jeanie.

“Lo and behold, a farmers market in front of Burbelmeiers today!    Fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers, combined with music in the background.
“Business was brisk as customers filled their bags with salad greens, turnips, and melons.”

Says Jean,   “The Hub has transformed their windows into a “Winter Wonderland.”
The snowy scenes transported me to another place in time.”

Ocean Grove. March 28, 2017. By Jean Bredin, Blogfinger staff. ©

Tuesday, March 28, 2017.  Jean Bredin says:

“It was a cold, dark, stark night in Ocean Grove.
Not a creature was stirring.
Not even a mouse.
The only things lively, were the flags, blowing in the breeze by the Boardwalk and Main Ave.
With the spotlights shining on them, it was a sight for sore eyes.”

JOHN RUTTER AND THE CAMBRIDGE SINGERS    “A Gaelic Blessing:”

“Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.”

It’s the day before the Blogfinger  yard sale..  For weeks I have been gathering every possible item to sell. My kitchen has become the area to iron and price linens, the living room is Ladies Fashions….filling my rack with clothes I buy and haven’t worn. My bed is stacked with stuff clogging up my closets, and on my dresser is my display of jewelry I still have to price.

I will hardly sleep a wink thinking of things I still have to do..blow up balloons, put out cookies for customers tomorrow, don’t forget putting out my quilts, those clay pots, some books……

…..Another Opening of Another Show.!!!!….as the song goes…

Here’s to a successful Yard Sale Day.!

From Jean Bredin:   “One of my favorite movies is PeeWee’s Big Adventure.  The plot revolves around PeeWee’s customized vintage bicycle which was stolen. His bike had doodads, gizmos,whistles, horns, and could fly! Well, this bike has no doodads or gizmos, but it is beautiful nonetheless…and fits right into Ocean Grove’s charm.”

Paul,

“Saw Judy, Judy, Judy, reading on her porch…..her houseful company left today, and she was enjoying the peace and quiet, til I came by taking her picture!”

Jean

Editor’s note:  Jean, I can do a pretty good impression of Cary Grant saying “Judy, Judy, Judy,” but a little Googling revealed that Grant denied every saying that.  Oh well, I guess I will have to go back doing Elvis, Cagney, and Jolson.—–Paul @Blogfinger

VALERIE MASTERSON.  From the score of the movie Quartet:  “So, please you sir, we much regret” from The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan.

“So please you, Sir, we much regret

If we have failed in etiquette

Towards a man of rank so high —

We shall know better by and by.

“But youth, of course, must have its fling,

So pardon us,

So pardon us….”

Tra la la la la la,

Tra la la la la la,

Tra la la la la la,

Tra la la la la la,

But youth, of course, must have its fling,

So pardon us,

“Tra la la la la la la,

La la!

Tra la la la la la la,

La la!

Tra la la la la la la,

La la!

Tra la la la la,

La la la la

La la la la la la la la la la la la,la, la,

La!”
