I don’t know where to begin or what to say here… Memories are bounding all over in my mind, my eyes see just blur through the tears. Thank you… while I read your message, the bumps, pot-holes and small lakes in the dirt drive way were as fresh in the head-lights now as they were… 40-some years ago. And when I read ” So many people, so many friends. I barely remember any altercations between anybody. Seemed love was truly in the air.” the music came up on the juke-box and the dancing began!

We were truly, I’d have to say, the “blessed ones”. As you say, G’s was a “wonder part of… coming out” and like you, I wouldn’t change one split second of any of it… (even the “broken heart” and “missed opportunities” moments).

I’m 62 yrs. these days, lived in Newburgh in those days. Several years ago I got the chance to stand on the old soil where G’s used to be. As the “Google” shots here show, if you didn’t know what was there then, you wouldn’t know it ever existed. Not sure who owns the property these days… I haven’t been in the area in a great long while. But I was fortunate when I was there last… nobody was at home and so, I had the wonderful change to stand where the dance-floor used to be and as a quite breeze blew across the lawn that’s there now, everybody was back, the music played, the people danced, the din of folks at the bar blended with the music on the dance-floor… all the familiar faces and all the folks “up from The City”…

Silly of me but I can’t help but think: If there truly is a “here-after” and we really DO get re-united with the people we loved most in life when this old life is done, when my time comes to leave here, I’d like to believe I can go back… to that old white house and ALL of us can be together again.

Thank you SO SO much for finding this blog and for posting your message.

Hopefully others will find it… and little by little… we all WILL get together again.

With BEST, WARMEST thanks….
