Hi! Haven't been able to spend any time here for a while. My sister and I were talking the other day and I was asking her what she remembered about the trips to the beach which would have been early 70's not sure if we were at the house on 3rd or andrews at the time. Anyway she reminded me that one of the girls who I think was staff (maybe renee) had parents who owned a house on the beach not far from the Yankee Clipper and we used to go there as a group. Anybody remember that? Like whose house it was etc.
Cheers

Sorry it took so long to reply. Went through the seed twice. Both times with my sister Marcia. I was there in 1970 at the little house on 3rd avenue, was an oldtimer by the time we moved to what would become the Haunted House on Andrews and went back when the program was on St Rd 84 around 72' or 73'. I was most recognizable the first time around because I was only 9 years old and at the time nobody had ever come in that young. Blond hair/ Blue eyes and my screen name is a giveaway for my nickname at the time which is a play on my first name. Would I know you? In reference to another post I did stay at a house in Davie the second time around. My oldcomers mom would drop me off there to sleep on the floor from around 6am until it was time to go to the morning meeting. Don't remember the guys name who lived there but he treated me ok and it was a very nice house in its own way.
Cheers,
L

Terry M* ended up married to Jeff Pet* and lives in Canada.  I am her ex-sister in law. I was married to Jon.[married 82...divorced 01]  I saw Susie Conners about 1983 she was doing the religon thing I think.  I had couple of drinks with her,she seemed fine she could always take care of herself. I want to know what happened to Cookie did Art take all her inheritance. After the Seed left Cleve. the Plain Dealer had a write up about it.  Karen K from Cleve.

Hey Karen we don't really use last names around here. I see you are quick to put others last names but just Karen K. for you.

Karen, I always liked Jon.  Speaking of finances
how much did you get out of the divorce.  Were you able to milk him out of everything? I always liked Jeff also, now Terry, that was another story.

any chance of getting your hands on the plain dealer article?

If you are still in cleveland (or anybody else), going to the local library and looking thru the ole microfish is one way.

I think it was '78,  I just got my background check and it said that all of my noteworthy behavior occoured that year, which resulted in my attendance on the front row.  I was only in the Cleveland seed for a few months before it closed.  It was October/November as I recall.

I remember Arthur. Me and my little sister were the youngest kids ever to attend the Seed, at that time anyway. I was eleven, she was 10. I was SO compliant (although I had to flat-out make stuff up in order to "relate"), that I don't remember any staff members or fellow Seedlings -- although I graduated the stupid program and attended oldtimers meetings for a long time (primarily because my dad was an AA nut).

(I got my first bra because of that "Girls must wear bras" thing -- so that was cool.  *giggle*)

My sister was the only person I ever knew who resisted the indoctrination ENTIRELY. She used to sit on her hands with all her might in order to avoid the stupid sing-and-hold-hands sessions. She still has a scar on her stomach from the dog "Spats" there (just a simple excited-dog bite, nothing abusive).

I remember Arthur grabbing my sister up from her chair once (where she was virtually lying down).  Other than that, I only remember Art and Libby.

well, whoever you are, welcome!  We had a couple nine year olds with "druggie attitudes" in the Stg Pete Straight.  I once had a newcomer who was twelve that was just a little boy, who got talked into smoking a joint with a neighbor, who then unfortuantely went to the seed. He had only smoked one joint in his life and didn't plan on smoking more.  He was so lost in the seed, it was just awfull.  The Seed changed him to another home after 2 or 3 weeks.

yech..sorry.  I can't even remember his name.

Hi Greg,

I don't think anyone in the world would remember me -- hardly-noticeable little introvert that I was. But I'd think someone would remember my sister, Shawn. She never surpassed "newcomer" (while I compliantly and quietly made my way to the pathetic "finish" in record time). I too had smoked only one joint prior to my forced inscription. My sister had done nothing.

I remember the race track, and then another place that seemed like a warehouse -- and the dog "Spats" and PBJ sandwiches and the cups of ice. My sister used to pssst-pssst me, and when I secretly cast a glance in her direction, she'd lob a cube of ice backwards into the endless rows -- making it difficult, in spite of my total indoctrination, to suppress my laughter.

There was a staff member named Gail, I think. The girl whose house I stayed at initially was a very-worldly 13-year-old named "Tangy."

Oh! What long-lost memories.

By the way Greg, I'm just remembering that the Seed had my sister do a television show (some kind of kids variety show, with a boat theme of sorts, if I remember right) -- you know, the novelty of a ten-year-old druggie and such. Only, she wasn't a druggie. But who were we to question?  :smile:
