“Still A Few Of Us Left*”

still some few drive by,

windows down, music blaring:

Sanford downtown sleeps!


  • (Back in my just-returned from Vietnam Days just after I scored a brand new VW Super Beetle, I pushed in the back two speakers off my Republic of South Vietnam, one each, BASF stereo speakers, attached them to a nifty eight-track and enlightened 6:30 p.m. Saturday downtown Sanford with In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida at full bore…but there was no one there, not even a sidewalk, to hear this paean to Bruce Jewett’s fine tutelage the year – and just a mite more – of KalifornHighAyKulture.  But I did get my mom to listen to the full treatment of John Kay’s “The Pusher” in its long version on Mount Dora’s daring underground FM radio, WDIZ, which later became an Orlando mainstream money-maker meaningless machine. The last three responsible citizens of downtown Snaffurd, Flor-hi-diddiya, rolled up that pair of concrete sidewalks no so sullently silent at 8 a.m. but never silent past nine p.m. these days.  In fact, Thursday through Sunday, all of Magnolia Square and much else besides will be full of German bands, music- and merry-makers celebrating with Linda, Christina (and her spouse Matthew) and Linda’s joy Theo Hollerbach to begin Sanford’s ongoing OktoberFest.  Y’all come, y’heah?)
