Born in Omaha, NE (Dad was in the AF). Moved to MN where family was until I was six. Been here since 1958.

Glad you specified your first 20 were in Joliet Ken. Their major industry is the prison isn't it? :lol

No Sir,

Yes they do have one prison left there Stateville, not Joliet!

Jake and Elwood's memories have to remain those as Joliet tries to use the casino $$ to refurb that side of town!!

What they do have are two major refineries [Mobile and Texaco] and three nukes plants that keep the locals working and your gas/utility prices in check......... OK, they are ripping you and me off too...........

Now the question was???

Robert and Elizabeth

Ok, Robert was born in Mount Vernon, NY and lived there and in Long Island until moving here in 1977. He used to live on the westside of Phoenix until hooking up with me. I tainted him! :lol

I was born in Wilmington, DE and was adopted at 9 days of age by my parents. They raised me in St. Peter's Village, PA which is just outside of Pottstown and about 75 miles west of Phila. We moved here in 1979. I have always been an eastsider since we moved here.
