Grew up on Sare Road / outside Bloomington, Indiana. Back then the house count was five houses total. Last time I drove down my little dirt road I stopped counting when it got into the triple digits. They straightened my little dirt road, moved the hills and valleys; but the house my folks built is STILL right there today. Owned by the Pizzo family who bought it in 1960. My dad built a house to last...........We moved in 1960, but the tunes the hillbillies hummed when I was a kid are still inside me. And the fellows I rode bikes with along Sare Road became the nucleus for a movie called Breaking Away. The son of the folks who bought our home wrote the script for Hoosiers..........so I'm out of Bloomington, but Bloomington ain't out of me.......
