    I was at the Dandy Inn in O'Fallon tonight and there was a Red Hellcat A8 but no one around. Just wanted to say sweet ride.

    It wasn't me, but I used to live in Swansea, and went to church in O'Fallon in the early '60s.

    Swansea is where I'm at now. Probably in what use to be a corn field.

    I don't remember the subdivision, but I lived on Neptune drive. My Grandma is buried just on the other side of Swansea (away from Bellville). I can't remember the state rt that runs through there. A childhood friend was killed, riding his bike, when they were widening the road from two to four lanes.

    If the rt runs N &S then it's 159 and Neptune is southeast from me. I'm close to 161 and memorial hospital on Frank Scott. We moved here when I got stationed at Scott AFB.

    IL 159! That's it. That brings back a lot of memories. My dad was a teenager during WWII. He lived on Scott while my other Grandma taught morse code to the AAF radio operators. My uncle was a Navigator, and was TDY there many times during Korea and Vietnam. I visited many times. We later moved off of 161. Windsor drive. My brother was born at Memorial.

    Wow what a small world. Things have changed a lot around here. I was TDY to Scott in 97 and when I came back to be stationed here in 08 there were corn fields that were now housing developments.

    If you get a chance in your travels, please go by 5 Neptune Dr and take a picture of the front of the house. My dad built that house in 1959-60. We moved from that house in 1966 and and left Bellville in 1970. I don't believe he has seen the house since the '80s. I haven't been by there since 1981. The friend of mine that was killed lived two houses down on the left. My dad is fighting cancer now. I thought it would be cool to show him a picture or two

    I'll see what I can do. I lost my dad to cancer and I know it's hard. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. It's been 18 years now since I lost my father.

    Here are the pics of your house on 5 Neptune. Sorry it took so long but wanted to make sure we had a sunny day.

    Thanks! That was very kind. When my dad built it there was no garage. I remember when my dad added the car port.

    No problem. It was just down the road and if it can bring a smile and spark good memories I was happy to do it.
