Ok, so I guess you could argue that Joshua Davis isn’t exactly a celebrity, since he’s just a regular guy from Traverse City who ended up on “The Voice” (and did really well, by the way – go, Josh!). But hey, he’s been on TV! So that makes him a celebrity, in my book.
So, the backstory: I was craving a Pinto Bean-Rice Burrito from Roaming Harvest, so the kids and I trekked to town to grab some eats from The Little Fleet, where all the food trucks are parked on Front Street (where Jack’s Market used to be).

As always, I’ve got my camera and I’m taking pictures of the kids (why, mom, why?!) and I see this adorable shaggy dog (who looked like he/she could be from the movie “The Shaggy Dog”), so I snap a few photos of the dog because, why not?
Then I start looking at the guy who’s holding the dog’s leash, and I whisper to my daughter, hey, isn’t that Joshua Davis, who was on “The Voice”? We couldn’t determine either way, so when we got back to the car, I googled “Joshua Davis dog” and came up with this photo, and I’m pretty sure it’s the dog I just took a picture of, but Josh, if you read this, you can confirm. Yes, I’m officially the only paparazzi photographer in Traverse City.
If you haven’t checked out The Little Fleet, get down there ASAP, if not sooner, because you’ll for sure find something – likely many things – to love there.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
