Ginny Good

Here's some chapters that talk about Sandra Good from a book about her
sister called "Ginny Good."

I thought this was great:

"Sandy is a total hippie who was living with the Beach Boys in Malibu and now is with prospectors in the desert teaching Dean Martin's daughter how to lose her ego. They cluck their tongues about what bad shape Mia Farrow and Nanci Sinatra's heads are in, altho Miss Farrow gave away her clothes and is living ascetically, 'she just can't give up her image.' I would certainly like to see my sister after reading her letters. She hikes barefoot in the desert forever, and she used to deride my mystical propensities. She is an Aquarian—Pisces cusp—which goes right along with what she is now doing. An absolutely rebellious, unconventional mystic. I sort of envy her."

All I personally remember about Sandy is that she used to work as a sales clerk at the Emporium on Market Street. She sold scarves and plastic headbands and was a lot less charismatic than Ginny—less compelling, more drab. That was before she shaved herself bald, carved a swastika into her forehead and hung out with the rest of the Manson chicks chanting spooky stuff outside the Hall of Justice in L.A., and way before she and Squeaky set up their own website.

Seems in my opinion Blue finally found people and life she could be herself in and not this fake world of fancy clothes money-maybe it was the time the 60's maybe she felt emptiness in her self and finally felt alive in this environment

Matt, somewhere out there is a Christian newsletter where one of Sandy's sisters wrote about coming to terms with Sandy's choices in life, along with a recent meeting between all of them in a parking lot somewhere. Have you ever seen that one?

I remember an X on Sandy's forehead but don't believe I've seen the swastika.

Thank you Candy, good shit!

PS: Candy, the link you have there links to a piece MsBurb wrote about a piece Karen Zacharias wrote about a meeting that she was not actually at. Patty wishes we could find the second-hand account in place of the third, but it may be lost now. Maybe MsBurb has it? Patty will ask her...

maybe ten + years ago I used to talk to the guy who wrote the book. I should look him up again.

eviliz said...

Good news hopefully. The author of
Good Ginny has contacted me.
I am hoping for an interview.

Sorry guys...too long ago now, cannot recall the link to the 2nd hand article to which I referred, can see it in my head tho...I may have kept it as a bookmarked piece or saved it to my files, if I find it in among the zillions of docs I have, will forward the link here...for now, off the top of my head, I have nothing to offer...

Hey Ms. Burb long time no see.
You do have something to offer.
What about the post over at your blog about Sandy's sister forgiving her?

Panamint Patty said...

Thanks MsBurb for dropping in. :D

In Chapter Six the author mentions his friend breathing or blowing on a dead bird and bringing it back to life. Vince mentions Charley doing just about the same thing.
