Sayonara Sadakichi

11 Mar

Sadahichi Meets St. Pete, 1944, where he went during WWII to avoid internment and write his autobiography. He did avoid internment, but obviously not interment. Nor did he finish his autobiography.

Here is his very difficult to find grave marker, cleaned off and photographed today by a fan of his more famous Bundy Drive compatriot.

    Dear Tokio Tim, I came across info that there used to be a magazine called the Palm Beacher Magazine. Are you as a Floridian resident familiar with this publication? Do you reckon that tales of Errol and Freddie could be found in there?

    I’m not sure whether I’ve seen it or not, playboyheinz. There is a modern Palm Beacher magazine, but I don’t know if it derives from the same ownership.

    I research the West Palm Beach Library historical collections on occasion. I’ll check it out, so to speak. … If you have any particular date or story you’d like me to search for, please let me know and I’ll do my best to do so.

        Since you brought up Tom Selleck and I’m in St. Pete today researching, I just took a “photo of” Tom, me, Lauren Bacall, and Joan Jett, among others, at Litte Cooperstown. Can’t seem to attach here, so will temporarily add above.

          Wow, one more question, Timber Tim: is that a fast- or a curveball you signed?

            Never dreamed I’d be on top of Bogie’s girl, and to the left of Joan Jett.

        Being that Sadakichi was half German and even lived there in his youth: Gern geschehen, herr shangheinz.
