I was digging through a box of old stuff and found my report cards from my time at PS 77. (Yeah, I'm a packrat.)

My 5th grade teacher was Mrs. Shirley J. DeNoon and my 6th grade teacher was Mrs. Bowen.

Sad to say, I don't remember them now -- but did anyone else have either as a teacher?

Did you know her husband disappeared under suspicious circumstances and was never found . . . She was a very nice lady.

There was Cowboy Bob, Popeye and Janie (renamed Janie's Place?) and Debbie's World for cartoon shows . . . Our brownie troop from IPS #77 was part of the audience for the latter two.

What about the Tee Pee over at the State Fair? My dad who is almost 90 loved that place.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and allowed me a very pleasant trip down memory lane.
WOW! The Tee Pee. I remember that, too!

Read post #51. I mentioned Burger Chef.

Every once in awhile they have a sandwich at Hardee's, who I think bought Burger Chef, that is similar to the Big Chef (Shef?) sandwich that was featured at Burger Chef.

Things I remember from a 80's childhood-
Linder's ice cream, on Keystone and Binford and 49th and College
Flakey Jakes on E 82nd St (I had my first remembered restaurant meal there, in kindergarten)
Showbiz Pizza, W 38th, E 82nd, E Washington and Greenwood (we went to all 4)
Fast Eddies on 38th and Meridian
Hills Department Store (it's where the toys are)
Eastgate Mall, and the General Cinema there
Cub Foods
Glendale when it was still a mall
I still say Preston Safeway, and Hook's, and Deer Creek Music Centre
I'm not quite old enough to remember the Burger Chef days, but we had straws and napkins from them well into my childhood.

I miss Flakey Jakes! I loved the giant baked potatoes and the bakery buns! The brownies were delicious, along with every other baked treat.

I attended preschool at a place called "Miss Cook's Kindergarten" -- anyone ever hear of it? I have no idea now where it was located.
I attended Miss Cook's kindergarten also. I am thinking around 1973. I remember having a french class. Where in the world was it? I keep thinking on 62nd street. My mom says I'm wrong.

I looked through this thread. OMG, forgot a lot of places in Indy. Being born in 1966 and moving away in 1995, here are the places and memories for me:

- Bill's Fabulous 50's Drive In - had a new Mustang GT in the early 90's at the time and went there several times, show off the car. I remember the really good looking girls working there

- Baseball at the old Busch Stadium

- Tee-Pee restaurant - never been there but remember seeing it when we go down Fall Crk. The State Fair Board was very short sighted in tearing it down

- The IUPUI satellite campus across from the fairgrounds, now leveled

- Exiting the parking garage at the old Indy airport - miss the animals that were on the gates where you paid to leave

- American Trans Air

- Market Square Arena - went to an ice skating event there and several rock concerts, one which was Ozzy/Motley Crue and Waysted in Feb 1984

- Glendale Galleria and with it, PB Tweeks Auto Show,the old Game Preserve, Radio Shack, fish shop, video arcade and cannot forget the 2 level Dalton's Bookstore. Got kicked out of Radio Shack for really ****ing off a sales lady there who had very little humor. Deed was getting a TRS-80 Voice Synthesizer Program to say that it is fried

- Also with Glendale, the yellow submarine, there was also a store that had its interior look like a cave

- Already mentioned, Cafe Expresso in Broad Ripple and what I remember, very mellow place and very good food

- Laughner's Cafeteria

- Farrell's at Castleton and Paramount on the East Side especailly the large pipe organ

- Nobel Roman's especially when they were going strong and before they remodeled. Love the movies. Visited one in Evansville in November and they have very cheap seating where before they had good seating where it was more inviting and comfortable

- Dalt's Restaurant at Keystone at the Crossing

- Keystone at the Crossing - the Bazaar, the farm silo at the entry point, Pipe Puffer shop inside

- Bangkok Restaurant which originally was by 73rd & Keystone then moved to Fishers and then folded. The original owner - Sam Balasari (sp?) was killed in an auto accident and the family eventually sold the place and the 2nd owners took it out

- Tijuana Yacht Club which was a Wharf Restaurant before. The TYC was a pretty cool place - dancing, video games, great place for young folks

- Grahams Electronics off of Keystone near 56th St

- Sound Pro in the former Keystone Square Mall in Carmel

- The original Border's Bookstore at Castleton in the late 1980's

- Ayr-Way stores in general. I remember the one in Nora which became Target and funny thing, the original building was torn down and rebuilt in a different spot

- The doctor's office next to Nora Apothecary which is now a strip shopping center. I think it was torn down in the late 1980's

- The garden shop by the Monon RR and 86th St (NE corner)

- The old designation of Indiana Highway 100 or known as Route 100

- Even though it is out of Indy proper in Westfield, cannot forget Thunder Island off of US 31. I think it closed like in 1995 or 1996

- While thinking of Westfield, cannot forget the big Dairy Queen that was at US 31 and Indiana 32

More random thoughts-
Indiana Bell, before Ameritech even. My uncle worked at the Castleton one- my dad would pick me up from school 43 and zoom down I-69. I still think the building looks 'odd' after its expansion, even though the new part has been there for years.
Lafayette Square, with both movie theatres. My mom took us to see The Care Bears Movie at the 4-5-6 on the bus, I remember that being the best trip ever. The Flintstones phone inside the mall that my dad would take me to if I was good. Imagine my sadness when we went one day and it was gone! Lafayette was always packed out- we went there the other day and my sister remarked about us being able to park much closer than we ever did back in the day.
Twin-Aire, close to the Twin Drive-In. My mom worked for Brylane briefly, and she would go to McCrory's 5 and Dime and pick up stuff for me. I loved my Tinkerbell perfume set!
Drive-ins period. The Pendleton Pike, which I loved. The Shadeland, which was fading fast when I got to go there, you could see the rivets in the screen when the picture was rolling. The Twin, which I don't ever remembering seeing in operation, but I've been assured that I saw movies there. The Clermont, where I wore my first "grown-up" earrings to, and went to their last day open, dancing with my tiny niece in my arms. Tibbs, from dusk til dawn.
Other movie theatres- The Glendale 1-2-3-4-5, The Castleton 6 maybe? (we didn't go there that often) and when Clearwater opened and the in-mall Castleton closed and the outlot went to Castleton Arts. Now, back at the mall again- Clearwater was only open for 13 years. Shortsighted much? The Loews Theatres- Cherry Tree, Norgate, the one behind Lafayette Square- which one am I forgetting?
