Bonzano Bohunk Profile
Well, all we gotta do is start rememberin' and writin'. We could just drown out these little pea-brains with our fond memories of life on the 'cose back in the day. Looks like its time for me to drag out all the old EHS yearbooks and 'member the madness...HMMM, lessee now... (Mar 10, 2014 | post #5056)
GOBBLE GOBBLE, Y-ALL Hee Hee Hee (Nov 27, 2013 | post #5034)
Hey Atl Girl! Thanks for the concern. We're doin' fine. Had to do a big fall clean-up and garage sale. Couldn't even walk through my work shop for all the "commodities " laying about. I'll get back on here soon. BOOOO TO YOUUUUUUU and all who spent Halloween on Grosse Isle getting scared by "Loony Roonie" Watch out for the hook stuck in your car door. LOL (Oct 31, 2013 | post #5031)
If you look back to page one, you'll see that this site was set up as a sort of memory museum for those of us who spent time in the town and had some good experiences we'd like to share with like-minded folks. If you feel that complaining about your earlier situation is fitting, then so be it, but I'm sorry for you. Nobody choses their birth scene. Maybe my generation didn't do such a good a job as my folks' did when it came to raising kids, or...? I was born weeks before WWII ended. We had just whipped the worlds worst bad guys and the sky wasn't even the limit from then on. In order for that to happen, everyone had to dig in, organize and share, work hard, sacrifice, fight and maybe die to save the world. Today, in this sea of hate and greed, I'm not sure we could do it again if called upon. I hope your kids have nearly the fun I had growing up, wherever that may be. (Jul 20, 2013 | post #5011)

Back in the ancient times, you parked behind the old ice rink in the summer. The two drive in theaters (Holiday and Fort George) were nice. Watch out for the guy with the hook for a hand!!!!! (Jul 3, 2013 | post #5006)
Back at ya Girl. Hey howzabout some spring time Ecorse memories. Anything, a sight, a sound, a smell, a feeling or a tradition??? Warm up those winter stiff fingers and start tapping those keys. I've got some, how'bout you's? (Apr 8, 2013 | post #4997)
Could you be talking about Carters, the Ecorse police dept. annex, between Jefferson and the river? (Mar 10, 2013 | post #4994)
Please jump to page 218. I did a little memory about some of the teachers who stood out in my mind. I was going to to another chapter, but got lazy or distracted. Hope you like it. (Mar 8, 2013 | post #4991)
You've read my later life posts. Call it more like "Stoopid, stooopider and stooooopidist. " The more I think back, the more I have to really "Laugh Out Loud". As I have always said, "God watches over fools and drunks." All us fools just loved growing...(not really up) in Ecorse at thet particular time. We were so...so lucky and blessed. Good night, Hon. B. B. (Feb 5, 2013 | post #4972)
You have to be OLD to remember that. Yes, there was a small radar base there until about 1952 and I immagine it was to protect the steel mill from attack during WWII. It was right across the tracks at the end of Bonzano St. behind the Presbyterian Church, before the Duckett Center was there.(Now the whole block is gone. Our house was one away from the tracks. My pal Les and I used to wrap rocks in tin foil and shoot them at the antennas with our slingshots, could have started a war. LOL The gate to the base was off Westfield. (Feb 2, 2013 | post #4968)
Hi Gurl, Yea, the little one block stub of a street east of Outer Drive is still called Bonzano. Number 26 is still there and that's where I grew up. It was home from 1945 to 1961 when my dad had a house built on 11th and Cicotte and we moved. My blushing bride of 45 years and I went for a visit in the fall and were amazed at all the changes. The whole block of the Presby. church, rectory, and the Ducket center, the Harbor Theatrer and all that was just rubble. We drove all around the 'cose and the Rooge and just relived great old times. My brother in law still lives in their home on Fifth St. so we return from time to time. Bitter-sweet, happy-sad. bless you. outer (Jan 6, 2013 | post #4961)
Cars don't have real "bumpers " any more, and besides, if a cop saw you doing that, it would probably be considered a felony. You'd be arested, cuffed & stuffed and your family would pay a fortune to lawyers, court costs and fines. Like I said, yesterdays mischief is todays felony. Believe me, I am the crown prince of mischief. Read me. LOL. I don't think anyone could possibly have had as much fun as us morons back in the day. (Jan 6, 2013 | post #4959)
Howzabout the Christmas show every year at the Ford Rotunda, before it burned down? Any body old enough to remember that? Sledding down the viaduct hills on Outer Drive? Tobbogan runs at some park in Dearborn, I believe. Can't remember where they were exactly, but they were solid ice and fast as hell. E.J. Korvett parking lot didn't have any curb stops, it was wide open. We would burn a whole tank of gas sliding and spinning and skidding around on the ice and snow after the store closed. Merry Christmas to all. (Dec 22, 2012 | post #4957)
