Hey Charlie,

Hey Charlie and Pat, I live in Spring Hill Florida, small great clean nice town about 50 miles north of Tampa, and 50 miles south of Ocala, love it here as well, wouldn't live any where else.
I will keep the trivia coming, and keep in touch.
Stay Well,
Oscar.

Hey Oscar, been reading alot of your stuff between classmetes & this site. You're a wealth of information. Yes I do remember Donna Pentifallo. Where's she at these days? Robin was my sister, she's married and has a son that just graduated Coral Springs Charter School and is heading to Florida State University. I married Pat O'Hearn after H.S., We're still happy together & live in Palmetto Florida. Been here since '89 and love it! Charley.

Hey Charlie,
Nice to see you came aboard, I was just talking to Donna Pentifallo, remember her, she left Jackson around the 7th grade, but we went to your's and Roy's party one time in Sherry Park homes, on Stump Tavern rd, she remembers you. How is Robin, didn't you marry a Robin, or Patty? I remember she was your H.S sweetheart.
The other Villes I think Whitesville, Vanhisville, Cassville, Leesville, the junk yards were correct, and of course the taverns, I still think Rova Farms was the best hang out for kids, dances, juke boxes, swimming row boat rentals, the pavilion with rolling skating, good memmores, good childhood.
Keep the site going.
Oscar.

Oh yeah! the Taverns! Gerffens, Whitties, & Rac's.
I can remember when my Dad was a bouncer at Rac's on Saturday nights. Gerffens had the big party area outside and Whitties was just a little corner hangout and a place for dad's to go while the family went to church across the street. Cassville! What a town!

Plunges, Irons, & Anderson all had junkyards?
I spent my first 30 years in Jackson but the memory must be going. Only came up with Cassville & Leesville, Willy's Corner, Glories Corner, & Kapps Corner I think? Oh well, give me an E for effort.

In Jackson in the 60's what did Johnny Irons, Al Plunges, and Bill Anderson, have in common, Nial, I know you know this one.
In Jackson in the 60's what did Gerffins, Whitties, and Racs, have in common, where they diners?
In Jackson, name three sections that had ( Villes ) at the end of their names.. And the hardest one, name three
establishments that had '' corners'' at the end of the business name.

Oscar,
The first three died prematurely of drug overdoses, the latter three died prematurely in transportation accidents.
All are members of the all-star-dead band.
Am I right?

Ok, you guys are pretty good at this trivia thing, couple more. What did Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix have in common other then the obvious rock stars.
And, what did Jim Croche, Ottis Redding, and Ronny Vanzant have in common?

Nial,
Yep, you beat on that one. I loved that "Derek and the Dominos" album. I recently re-bought it in CD format on a budget rack.

I can't believe I couldn't think of "Dizzy Miss Lizzy"!! That's one of my all-time faves, AND my dizzy sister's name is even "Liz" to boot! For me, that song still rates a couple of extra notches on the volume control knob. Pure rock and roll.

Oscar,
Okay, I slept on it, and I think I came up with two more. (I say "think" because I'm not sure if these were the actual titles, or just some of the words in the songs):

Sexy Sadie
Lovely Rita

This post-dates the time period we're looking at by ten years, but it's interesting reading for any and all who are fans of the music biz. Besides, that extra ten years we have under our belts just gives us a solid historical base from which to view all that occurred afterwards. As the joke goes, the twenty-somethings of today all think of the BeaTles as Paul McCartney's original back-up band. But WE know better.

Nial,
That's a BIG 10-4 on "PLASTICS." I laugh every time I think of that scene. That, and "are you trying to seduce me, Mrs. Robinson?" I remember reading that Harrison Ford worked as a carpenter, but didn't realize or had forgotten that Sergio Mendez figured into the mix in any way. Agreed on all of your other observations too.

Alice,
I didn't mean to make you wait to ask me to re-post the list, but often times there isn't much change in what songs are actually on the list, just the order in which they appeared. I'll put another one up in a couple of weeks.

It's kind of interesting to note that the Beatles where "over" by this time (althought it's hard to believe). Stuff I remember about this list:

#1- "PLASTICS!!"
#3-somehow, these guys moved from "do-wap music" to "psychodelic music"?!?!
#4-the catalyst for "bubble gum music"
#5-what the heck was this song about?
#7- I didn't really listen to "Motown" music back then: now I realize how *good* it was.
#8- Felix Cavaleire (sp?) is still around doing shows
#10-Around the time this came out, Sergio Mendes hired a young, local carpenter to build a small sound-studio in his house. The carpenter was Harrison Ford.
