I used to go out there with Green Lyte Sunday probably after they wrapped up their shows at the Diamond Club.... probably around 1973-74.

scared the crap outta me too, afterwards, i took a lot of drunken compatriots up there after the bars closed.. everyone in the joint would gather round and watch every time someone new got 'initiated'. 'he's way down in the back corner there hiding, you gotta look real hard to see him', and then, POW!

Hey Stebbins guys - I hate the 'Do you know" questions but I'm gonna ask anyway. I worked at E F McDonald with a gal named JOY who lived on the same street as the old Drive-in near Stebbins - probably graduated about 67? Also a neighbor of mine in Fl was from Stebbins (grad abt 68?) - Ed Flannery, and then there were the twins I dated from Stebbins after they moved to Beavercreek.

I think I remember a girl named Joy Oaks or something like that. I grew up in that trailerr park next to that drive-in. Used to sneak in and turn up the speakers and watch free movies from the park side..BTW. I graduated in 65 and spent most of the late 60's in SE Asia. I don't mind the 'Do you know' questions.

Glad to see there are memories from Dixie Donut. Clarence was my Dad and he was a character. I worked there for many years. You could write a book from the stories that came out of there. It was the place to be for sure if you wanted to have fun.

Hey Cecil. I'm pretty sure I know who you are. I always worked 1st shift so if you came in then - you know it was pretty crazy. Fun place wasn't it. If Dad pulled some of that stuff now he'd have one lawsuit after another. I'd seen him shoot quite a few people with that blank pistol. It's a wonder somebody didn't shoot him. How have you been? I see Glen about every other day but I haven't been in the shop since the day of Dad's funeral. Neighborhood has really gone down. Lot of good people went in there.

I used to stop there about 2-3 times a week on the way home from my girlfriend's, or on the way home from the Diamond club. Sometimes there would be someone outside trying to sell me a watch.!!

Great doughnuts.
