#SummerSparks Day 7 – Don’t You Know that You Are a Shooting Star?

Summer Sparks Day 7Don’t You Know that You Are a Shooting Star?
by: Tracey M. Cox

Have you ever wanted to meet a super star? Someone famous. Someone who has made an impact in the world. Maybe in your own area.

You might be closer to someone than you thought.

When I searched, I found that Dave Prater (of Sam & Dave) was from Ocilla, Georgia!!!  0.0  Wahhhhhh??? You’re not sure you’ve heard of him? Well let me help you get a little groove on today…

Not too shabby Ocilla. Not too shabby at all.

Ocilla is also home of a few football players: Walt Sumner and Justin “Bean” Anderson.   Woot! Woot!

See even a small town like mine has some shooting star. Who knows maybe one day we will be shooting beside them! Keep reaching peeps!

SPARK:

Go to Google. Type in “Famous People from” and enter in your “City, State”. Or you can enter in just your state. You might be surprised to see how many shooting stars are near you.

  1. Thanks Tracey for all the Summer Sparks! Living in Chicago, we have “all kinds of famous and infamous people” here:)

  2. Great post, Tracey and a great way to “spark” ideas. I’m now researching some of Muskegon, Michigan’s famous people. It’s amazing that such a small town can have such a long list of interesting characters.

  3. Doris, I know. Ocilla is teeny, tiny, but they still have a few. Now IF I had checked Rochester, NY (where I’m from) there is a bunch. Just keeps us digging.
