What’s on my mind:
Baseball and the blues and politics and hard news. A good photo. Great words. And a civil discussion.
Steve — I have (at long last it would appear) started to catch and enjoy your blogs. Your recent ones about Mr. Norregaard and Ms. Magzanian were spot on — although I do not recall the fear of her that you must have had. BFS certainly was a great school in the day and helped prepare me for a full life. All the best, and I shall continue to monitor your musings
Real nice of you to say that , Ted! Appreciate it.
Loved your feature on Cosie. Brought back a lot of memories and made me smile. Thanks for reminding me about a great place and a one of a kind man.
Re Cosie: I’m a Geneva native and began frequenting Cosie’s when I was 16. I also was the H &WS staff photographer in the early 80’s and I’m pretty sure I took the toothpick-in-the-bottle series of photos. Sam, as I recall, was Cosie’s uncle and the previous owner of the place.
I loved your story on Coz. I was a townie who grew up on cheap beers at Cozzie’s. It was a real shook to find out that wasn’t the case when I went to NYC for college. As you said, no matter how long you had been gone, Cozzie remembered you and made you feel at home. When I went to my high school 45th year reunion a few years ago, I offered a toast to our “senior advisor”, Mr, Cozzie. What a great guy- humble, funny and eternally optimistic.
Ike was my grandfather!
Are you still talking to me? 🙂
I’m one of his other granddaughters. Love love love the story. Sounds like Grandpa Ike. We all really miss him.
I stumbled across your blog during a search on Hobart. I spent a year there in ’72 and fondly remember Cosie’s. I too got my own beer (Genesee) and paid into the register while Cosie was busy playing Pitch with the County Judge or chatting up the Ladies. I also got change or the electronic bowling machine. It was an iconic place that I will never forget. Thanks for the memories!
