Driller says . . .

Some more thoughts from the Driller . Always appreciate when he sends a thought or two, cause he was there.
Listen my children....

"If South Peoria was the Restless Ribbon, and it certainly was, then Pennington's Drive In was Ground Zero.  If you went to a movie at the Brook Theater, you drove up to Pennington's after the movie for a coke and fries.  If you went to a high school football game at Skelly Stadium, you drove to Pennington's after the game.

Like Aerosmith sang...
