Southern Indiana Guy Free
'54: born in the pastoral hills of southern Indiana, near the town of Hitchcock, within earshot of the historic Monon Railroad. '71: working night shift at a gas station/hot-rod shop at the nearby town of Campbellsburg, I bought a '65 289 Mustang and "souped 'er up". '73: a teenage hell-raiser, I almost wrecked her while drag racing a '68 396 Chevelle on ol' Highway 56 (SW of the town of Little York). But I still won. '74: dropped out of college after one semester (wasn't for me); joined the Army. '79: 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 Wabash River. With no business sense and too much beer, I ran it right into the ground. Now retired and barely living only off of Social Security in the town of Furnessville in NW Indiana, in earshot the historic South Shore Line. A whole lot of jobs, many regrets, but even more stories.
