Homosassa Goes Hollywood

Friday Meanderings

Oh Jeeze Louize.

It’s already Friday.

I’ve been kind of stuck in my dark office and the week has flown by.  Working on stuff. Good stuff. 

If you haven’t got your tickets for the “Homosassa Goes Hollywood”, it’s not too late!

Homosassa Goes Hollywood

This is going to be so much fun.  Cocktail Party. Silent Auction. Papparazzi. My super-duper video presentation.  Oh yeah, and the movie “Crosswinds” that was filmed right here in Old Homosassa way back in 1951.  I was not born yet but I’m pretty sure that Terry was maybe 4. He probably didn’t make the first Red Carpet Premier!  But we’ll be there for this one!

(Can’t believe that “An American in Paris” won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1951.)  

So what else is going on?  How about those golf carts sharing the roads in Old Homosassa. Surprise to me, but some people are not happy about this big event.  Like “what’s going to happen if I get t-boned by a golf cart?” Hmmmmm.  Don’t have an answer to that one.  

Golf carts have been here since we moved to Homosassa almost 13 years ago.  Several months ago an overly-ambitious deputy decided to give warnings to golf cart drivers that they weren’t legal. Which prompted local residents to start a petition drive which led to a safety study by the county which led to the approval of the golf carts sharing the road by the county commissioners. Democracy in action. This effort took MONTHS!  It was in the paper numerous times.  And now we are hearing that there’s a whole lot of people that aren’t happy about it.  

We don’t have a golf cart.  But we supported the effort.  Time to move on.

Terry Green, Secretary of the Homosassa Civic Club, Recent Retiree, and my Husband is the new Chairperson of the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival.  Jeeze Louize.  Retirement is supposed to be easy.  

Hope you have a great weekend!
