One of my co-workers recently put a magazine on my desk with big red circles around one story.
It’s the stuff urban legends are made of. While we may not have the vanishing hitchhiker or a burglar hiding in the closet after getting his fingers bit off by the family pet, Solano County has its own stories of lore.
The newest appears to be in the magazine article talking about whether Susan Lucci, Erica Kane on ABC’s “All My Children” has purchased a home in Green Valley.
The story is a fun read, especially the quote from the author herself, “Movie stars and celebrities don’t just walk around and say, ‘I bought a house in Green Valley. Would you like to come by for an autograph and cup of coffee.’ ”
Could it be Ozzy Osbourne said the above when he purchased his home on a Green Valley hillside. (OK, since he’s British the invite probably would have been for tea, not coffee.)
Or, did he ever really buy a house there? As we know, the family recently lived in Beverly Hills as documented on their MTV series “Meet the Osbournes.”
But the story of the man who urinated on the Alamo being a resident of the fair city of Fairfield has been told to me several times.
So, I did a Zabasearch for John Michael Osbourne (Ozzy’s given name) in the state of California. It did yield a result for a John Osbourne in Vallejo, but none in Fairfield.
Oh, yes, and there was listing for John Osbourne in Beverly Hills.
I did a Zabasearch for Susan Lucci in California and got two results, none in Fairfield.
So is the drama diva living among us?
And, by any chance, was it Ozzy Osbourne who suggested she move to the area?
Or did both move here in hopes of catching another show by Creedence Clearwater Revival show at the old Grange hall, now a church on E. Tabor Ave., in Fairfield? This is a little tougher since the band no longer exists and one members has died. However, I can’t predict the future. So I won’t say the remaining members won’t reunite for one last show. And, of all places, why not Fairfield?
If you see Susan, Ozzy or the remaining members of Creedence around town, let me know ASAP.
