Ok, fess up, who are you? I worked at the Point Cafe for George Helton. I went to Millie's Rendevous once or twice to find a girl that worked there. Her brother, Sonny was in LCI and sent me on a mission. Benny lived on the block up from us on South St. His sister and I went to school together.
Small world indeed, lol.

If you're over 50 and from the Middletown area, you've heard of Benny Dykes. I never got the pleasure of meeting him but heard a lot about him. Strange, my last name is Helton but I never new George Helton. Don't forget the Tropical Lounge. Small world after all.

Don Briscoe is my cousin,His brother Kenny was married to BIG Jerri.I do not say it in a bragging way but I saved her life at the point one night Kenny was really going to stab her.Man they use to get in some knock down and drag outs.
I dont believe I ever went in the Point that Chuck Allen wasnt at the bar and Goo Atkins was around alot.The Aquarium use to be the Trade Winds Bill Miles owend it then, that was my second home.Jay Farmer hung at the Trade Winds alot,He was one tuff dude.I made it a habit to get a long with them people,Also the Pieratt boys and the Gibbis clan.Do you remember Kenny Gibbs ? he got killed in the midwestern bar in Newport,Ky in 1970.
Its good to run in to somebody to chat with about old Middletown.Well its Fathersday,If your a father happy fathers day,Well if your not a father have a good one.Later

No Benny's sister's name was Debbie. There was another brother a few years older than Debbie, very studious and quiet. Speaking of Chuck Allen, he was a character. When I went to work at the Point I had NEVER heard anyone say the word F**k. I would hide in the back room when he came in. George told me to tell him to shut-up so I did. Then the whole bar would say shut up Chuck. Me and Chuck shared a glass of Mogan grape wine every morning after that, at about 5:30 AM. He was a sweetheart. I lived next door to the Crawford St. Grill when I was very young, the Pieratt's owned it so I knew them all a long time. Every body knows Doc Gibbs.He's almost as legendary as Benny. Didn't Jay Farmer die a few months ago? My brother went to the marines with Kenny Briscoe. He stayed with us a lot before they went in. Small world. I have to know you from back then. Remember Charley and Harley Gillie? and their beautiful sister Ruby? I think she was with Jay Hatton. They fought a lot too. You have brought back a lot of memories.

Don't know if Summer is crackin' but I saw that she was arrested for prostitution on Central Ave. The whole downtown area is full of prostitutes and zombies walking around all cracked out. No I can't figure out who you are but I'm sure I know you. Raymond Stephens is gone, I think Patti and Ralph still live in Morehead, Ky. Do you know who I am? Yes I know you do. Tell me your last name or something. We are the same age so we may have gone to school together. I have racked my little pea brain trying to figure it out. My daughter passed away and I have her 2 yr old so I never go anywhere except the park. She's my world! Tell me something!!!!!

No, Park St doesn't ring a bell. Give me a clue. Eddy Gentry came to mind but I think he's passed too. Is your name Ronnie? little guy with black hair, hung with Eldon in the early 70's? I thought Jerry Spencer originally cause I knew he moved to Ky.
