Dr. Blake. Jay repeatedly tells me that he doesn’t photograph well. Um, could it be that each time the camera appears, he starts making faces? (Seen here, his signature “moose face.”) Fortunately I take no blame this time; our friend Kim shot this excellent photo on a walk along Gloucester’s Eastern Point jetty. So lest I’m accused of being mean, as sometimes happens (the accusing, not the being), I will demur and aspire to be “always nice” as Jay frequently claims to be. He was born on the easy-to-remember 1.23.45, and today is his birthday. Best wishes, Moose Face.
