The old Trout,old Boot & old Coot.
For the 15 years Joe Gale has been taking time to set up his mannequin type dummies at his cabin near Cape Ray. Joe spends time there during the summer and enjoys the fact that a lot of people drop by to view his creations. Guests also get to sign a guest book inside and believe me Joe has quite a collection of things there also. I once took a wedding party there for a photo shoot and since then more have done the same. Originally Joe had just one mannequin whom he fondly called "The old Bastard" but changed the name after a newspaper interview. Apparently the kids use to ask their parents to take them out to see "The old Bastard" so Joe decided,Old Trout would be better. The old Coot and Boot came later. Today there the Southeast winds are blowing and maybe Joe will have to remove them for a while. The Transport trucks are still passing there at the moment and as they do they give the old Trout,old Boot & Coot a blast from their horns. Here's a photo of the group today.
