Yep I loved driving around and around and around the Henny Penny. And there food was good to. Yep it may sound boring just driving around the Henny Penny with the one you love while on a date but believe me it was fun for us. Your right it was the place back then. Thanks for bringing back a good memory.

I miss the Big Red Special. Yummy !! It's sad that the kids in the county today have no where to go to meet up with their friends. We had the Dairy Dell and the Henny Penny for cruising and then the drive in. I have been talking to some friends about opening up a place like the Henny Penny., Do you think it would be a good investment ?

What great memories you all have brought back. Those were the good ole days. Pretty girls, majoreetes that could twirl, fast cars,mason jars,delecious food, good moods, cheap gas,no sass,no bars, cheaper cars, no worries, no hurry, fantastic teachers, repected preachers,May Day Parade, Captola's serenades, no worries until the dreaded Asian War until peace was restored and the 7th Dayers were knocking on our doors and couldn't wait to take a date to the Family Drive Inn or to the Catholic to roller skate. Tigers winning, Redlegs domination just beginning, KY Wildcats hoopsters always winning, oldies sock hop music rocking and Happy Chandler frollocking and Ole EM Center Bolt Spurlock body and mind blocking !!!! Oh what memories of the good ole days !!!!

You weren't living under martial law back then. You can't do anything around this place or anywhere in the nation unless you have the government with their eye on you. The free American citizen is living in a communist society and doesn't even know what is going on. The government has created a society that is dependent upon the government for everything from where they live to what they eat (food stamps) and they do have the best medical care they can ask for (med. card). I'm not putting anyone down for using this form of living but the government is responsible for letting their people down. We have no jobs thanks to them, and as everyone knows you have to eat, feed your children, and just live. We the people need to make a change before it's too late. We may already be too late.

Those were the good ol' days. I had Ms. Cap in high school so I know where you're coming from. Haha.

Yeah, EM and I just never did hit it off for some reason.

Don't remember the Catholic skating but it might be oldtimers catching up with me.

You are exacly right.That is what has broke our government. People worked marriages out. Because thye were no food stamps & welfare. You raised gardens to feed your family. Canned food to make it through thw winter. People are to sorry this day & time.They think it's okay to draw a check like Mom & Dad. Have been handed to much free things.Baby boomers are lucky if they get to draw Social Security.

I have more education than you do, and I would bet on that one. I speak three languages, read and write them also. I bet you can't even speak English correctly. Now let's get back to the good-ole days at the Henny-Penny.

Why do so many people try to destroy a good topix. I guess because it didn't have any filth on it. Let's just go back to talking about good ole times. Best part was going up a holler & parking. LOL!!!! Saying the pledge every morning before school started. Having respect for your teachers. Settling your differece with a good fist fight. It was over & not going home to get a gun to kill someone. Being protected from drugs & alcohol. Wearing clothes in a decent way. Good ole days.

Thx guys...Good free fun. Even though I wasn't allowed back in the car (because you had your girlfriend in there) I enjoyed bumming at the concession stand LOL
