Let's hope that includes a DDs.

Speaking of gas stations, when's CC Charlie's coming down?

That will make 10 gas stations once it, and the one proposed for the CCC footprint gets erected.

 

!0 gas stations and heaven only knows how many pumps.  :dismay:

Don’t you guys need fish for tackle shops?

As the bass fishery continues to decline, it's going to become increasingly challenging to stay in business.

When my dad first began bringing me down in the mid 1960s, most local tackle shops made a lot of money selling flats of seaworms,  eels and eel skins.   Macos used to sell 100 flats of worms on a Friday night.   That part of the fishery has all but evaporated.

Bourne is going to become one big rest stop for people coming to and leaving the cape. Gas should be cheap with that much competition.

…..and those 10 gas stations will disappear as well, once Elon Musk's product is common place.   :scared:

You must give the Bourne brain trust over at Perry Ave credit for assuring they squeeze every nickel from those who travel through Bourne.

 

For example, take those 10 gas stations.  You notice how they are, like magic, evenly split to serve east and west bound traffic?    Five stations will serve traffic headed east and five stations will serve traffic west bound.  Amazing coincidence isn't it.

 

This wasn't just happenstance.  Rather it is part of the grand master plan you mentioned.

Plenty of fish, not just stripers either BUT  you have to work for them.  The internet heroes here and on the other social media sites consider the blitzes in the Canal the past few years as normal, not so.

Yes, new broom will sweep differently, that's for sure.  

 

TG had a good run as Town Administrator.....15 years....160K +/-.....not too shabby considering who and what your dealing with.

A 100 flats in one night? Holy smokes that’s a lot of worms.

It was a joke but as a fishery slows down business will minimize and if they come back so with the demand. For local at their local waters there is always fish, but the weekend warriors keep the shops open.

I remember those days, my Dad would take me to the B&T in Falmouth, don't remember the name and you'd have to wait outside in line.

There was one in Revere, at the rotary, was packed on the weekends too. Sometimes you'd have to call ahead and order a flat of seaworms. Then go to Point of Pines all night.
