Hey ~ I live in Timonium, MD, but grew up in Long Green in the 70's/80's. Going "up the road" to Jacksonville was a big deal. My family members were great customers at The Starting Gate. As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure Deaf Doug was my Uncle Doug. Great Guy! I remember Jacksonville before it was Phoenix as the newcomers like to call it now. I remember all of the places you mentioned in your book. I remember the day the pharmacy burned down and the day Johnny got his gun. Reading your book was like revisiting my childhood and young adult years. I still go to J-ville ocassionally. Too much traffic on the pike now ~ Harford County folks using it as their own little cut through on the way to Towson and points beyond. They don't have a clue about the old Jacksonville. Thanks for writing this memoir about a place in time that no longer exists, but I am sure glad I got to experience it. All the Best! Jane
