We have a fictitious character in our Ukrainian family � Stashu Ipondrovich. Actually, my Dad made him up and Stashu got the blame for
every completely ridiculous thing any one of us did. �Nice going, Stashu�, or �That is so Stashu�, or even, �You look so Stashu!�, which was a good indication that you needed to put something different on.
Poor Stashu. But he had to be a colorful character and happy to just �be�. When I saw the reference photo by Donna Sommer, �Street Music�, I immediately imagined the old man as Stashu in human form and every time I look at this, he makes me smile.
I remember when I was very young, maybe 4 at the time, Mom and Grandma took me downtown Detroit for the Ukrainian Folk Festival along the Detroit River. Since I was so small, my strongest visual memory is of the red boots, but I can still hear the Polka music.
