> I spent my 'formulative years' in Nashville, TN, but my dad was a Marine and we moved to North Miami when I was 6. I lived on 132st Street, right near Gulf 5 & Ten and St. James Catholic Church/School, where I went to class, and where my mother was a teacher.

Nope, in '72 I lived on South beach (5th St), then a location in N Miami on.. 122nd st? I was 6 or 7, hard to remember and we only lived there a short stint. Hard to recall, Ives Dairy Rd? Mede Ives Elementary school (spelling probably wrong). That was short lived, moved back to the South, saw Star Wars a dozen times at the Normandy theater across from the Surf \:\) , then moved to SW Miami near Coral Gables/Kendall

Hmm, in N Miami did you ever visit Starship Enterprises before they went out of business? They had the first Con I attended \:\)

...right on 163rd Street, where I moved to as a teen--North Miami Beach proper, off 19th Avenue.

Starship Enterprises--I remember the skinny white guy and the beared co-owner quite well. I used to buy my Eerie, Creepy, and Vempirella there, as well as my comics. Who knows, maybe we bumped shoulders in was never very crowded. I bought my wall-length huge Vampirella poster there.

As I grew older, I came to now all of South Florida well, and spent many, many years on wonderul 'OLD' South Beach when it was still a wonderful slum full of elderly--the most real place in the world.

It was just magic back then, at any time of the year, especially at night in during the S. Florida 'winter,' with all the evocative alley ways, and when the 'Versace mansion' was still the Amsterdam Palace. You must know Max's Club Deuce, yes?

Good to hear all this about you. Where are you now?
