Just a Guy from southern Indiana Premium
'54: born in the sylvan hills of southern Indiana, SW of the town of Hitchcock, within earshot of the historic Monon Railroad. '71: while working night shift at a gas station/hot-rod shop at nearby Campbellsburg, I bought a '65 289 Mustang and "souped 'er up". '73: a teenage hell-raiser, I almost wrecked her while "pink-slip" drag racing a '68 396 Chevelle at the Georgetown Flats section of Highway 56 (between the towns of Little York and Canton). But I still won. '74: dropped out of Hanover college after only one semester, then joined the Army. '82: living on a leaky, creaky houseboat and starting as a bartender/bouncer, I bought a run-down canoe livery/greasy-spoon diner/tavern on the banks of the Tippecanoe River. With absolutely no business sense, I soon ran it right into the ground. Now retired and living only off of Social Security in the town of Furnessville in NW Indiana, within earshot of the historic South Shore Line. Numerous jobs, a few regrets, but many, many stories.
