Growing up in Venice, Florida, The School Street Years!

Looks like it will be sunny and a bit warmer, for today and tomorrow at least...not warm, but warmer, closer to normal....yesterday was cold again, and wet to the north, thus my game at Sherwood Fairview became my 18th rain out of the season which began on March 30th, just 4 weeks ago tomorrow.  This, as far as I can recall, is the worst Spring season I have ever experienced, as far as cancellations....not good at all for my cigar, beer, and gas funds.

Tonight looks better, I have another long drive, 60 miles or so north to Glandorf, where Ottawa~Glandorf will take on Kenton in Western Buckeye League action, tomorrow a double header is scheduled at Allen East vs Lima Perry, the weather looks good again...Sunday will probably be reserved for lawn mowing.  May and seasonable weather, we hope, cannot come soon enough.

Today I will give you the link of the stories and photos I blogged about back in the Spring of 2008, about growing up in Venice, Florida, the little berg{at that time} that I spent my youth during the years from 1954 to near the end of 1962...eight excellent years  in a place, like so much of America, that has been lost, lost not for the better:  Click the Link Below:

Two more stories to go and I will finish them up next week....or you can link on the posts section on the right, and search for the stories that were typed back in April and May of 2008:

Enjoy the weekend....back later>>>>
