Yes Bevo, I saw the VanLue score. Also, I noticed that your Upper Sandusky Rams had a huge 41-21 win over Mt. Gilead.And, the Browns' elf will be visible tomorrow.
For those who like, my kids saw "It" last night and loved "It". We will see soon.
(These "kids" are 23 and 28.)
OWK - VanLue stands at 2-0 with a win last night. And, it is their 10th. win in the last decade! Roll Wildcats!!!
Here you go Bevo - "Take Me Home Tonight", Eddie Money with Ronnie Spector:Copy Rights - whatever?! Someone please run the video of Take Me Home Tonight with Eddie and Ronnie.
RIP - former New York cop in training, Eddie Money - age 70 -. if for nothing more than the great, great song and hot, sexy video with Ronnie S.
I have seen a reproduction (copy) of the picture Look used in '48 of the prom goers swimming at the pool. It's either been in the Daily Chief Union or in one of the year books over the years. I am pretty sure the superintendent who I believe had the last name of Davis came up with the idea. I note the 70th. anniversary of the event was this past May.
WOW! Great find!!
Rosie Ellis aka, Rosie Stephens (the bathing beauty at the bottom of the page) lived very close to us in town about 15 years ago and would stop and talk while out walking. She also bought a drum set of mine around '70 for her son, Ed.
Other than the cold pool and air I bet this was great, great fun for a group who just four years earlier had friends, uncles, brothers, etc. fighting in W.W. II.
I also want to point out my uncanny memory of several of the key events.
Diva - if you are still checking in, a while back (it's all a while back now) I brought up the fact that Upper had the first all-night prom in the country. One of our sleuths found the Look Magazine article, with pictures telling the story. The prom was around '48.
One of the girls interviewed for the article (and there may have been a picture of her) was named Rosie Ellis, later Stephens and finally, Jordan. Saw this week that she had passed away at a nursing home in Findlay at the age of '87. The obit. mentioned that she was a great swimmer but no mention of the article.
She bought my drum kit for her son, Ed around 1970. Later on (20 years ago or so) we lived in her vicinity (Fourth and Church) and she would walk by and always stop and chat if I was in the front yard playing with my kids. Nice lady!
Bevo - Great call knowing that Richard Theodore Otcasek (aka Ric Ocasek) graduated from Maple Hts. High School. Here's a photo of him from Maple's 1961 yearbook (bottom row, second from the left):The Cars were very good; different sound. RIP - Rick Okasek; graduated of Maple Heights High School near Cleveland.
Monclova Steve - Very glad that you and your wife liked the Country Music program. Like Bevo, I found the historical aspects of the program extremely interesting. I'll have to get the DVR going tonight because the Browns and the Singing Cowboys are both on the tube. Ordinarily it wouldn't be a big problem, but since I'm in Florida I don't get to see the Brownies very often.OWK,
Mrs. M & I watched "Country Music" by Ken Burns last night. Totally fascinating. I still remember the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers and their wonderful music from my childhood.
As one who grew up on my parents' country music mixed with my own rock 'n roll top 40, I have a very soft spot for both.
Yes, I was a child of the late '60s, and am still influenced by the music of that time, but I still loved many Country & Western artists all the way thru the '80s & '90s (George Strait, Charlie Pride, Porter Wagoner, Dolly, Merle, Johnny Paycheck, Waylon, and so many others).
I lament the evolution since then. Perhaps that just means I've gotten old.
Whatever it means, Mrs. M & I are eagerly awaiting the next installments. Thanks for putting us on to the broadcasts!
We're back from our trip to the Florida panhandle. Boy-the seaweed is terrible-apparently all beaches in Florida are suffering from it. Hopefully it is a temporary thing because it seriously kept our swimming at the beach to a minimum. The pool was great though.
