Rainbow Cone

Just got back from my first Rainbow cone this year. We were talking to waitress at dinner and when she asked about dessert, I said we were going to skip that course and do a Rainbow cone on the way home. She had never heard of them. Figures, she grew up in Midlothian, not the south side of Chi-town. 

We explained them and their mystique to her. She said she was definitely treating her 5 y/o daughter this week end.

As mentioned on this site before, The Creamery at Kansas and La Grange Road, Frankfort, sells the original.

Bob Hendry


Bob Hendry  MPHS Jan 1966

K-5 “The Portables” in Mt. Greenwood
6-8 Mt Greenwood Elementary
9 Clissold Branch MPHS
10-12 MPHS Main Building
Bob Stevenson Sandy Schuessler Bob Hendry

1966-1970 NIU, BS Business (Marketing) Pete Terry, and Sandy Schuessler were my best buds from HS at NIU

 
1973-1976 Loyola MBA (Lewis Towers)

I was in the first lottery, pulling 278………..and never got called up!  I’m just about the only guy of our age (I know of) who didn’t “go”.  Frankly, I’ve always felt a bit guilty about it……..especially since my brother Billy (MPHS June 68) went and saw too much.

Coach Bill Warden

Bill Warden Class of 1954
North Central College
Hall of Fame
Induction Class of 2004
Coaching
Men's Basketball




Bill Warden's talent on the court was so impressive that he was drafted by the Minneapolis Lakers after he graduated.

As a Cardinal, he finished as the record holder for most points in a career (2,249), most points in a season (689), most points in a game (52), most field goal attempts in a season (533), most field goals in a career (847), most field goals in a season (254), most free throws in a career (555), highest career scoring average (28.5) and highest single-season scoring average (32.8). 




Coach Warden was a great guy and a fine coach. He was very patient with the antics of his high school players.


When I was a senior I forgot to bring my jersey for the team photo. The Coach lent his brand new Chevy convertible to Al Carlson and I to drive home to retrieve the jersey.


It was a nice day and Al and I decided to take the top down. What we did not realize was that you had to unzip the rear glass window before you lowered the top.


Bang!! Window broken!  We are in deep Kimchee.


We drove to the Mt Greenwood Lutheran Church, found my mother, and borrowed money and her car. Al drove the Chevy to the Chevy dealership to get the window repaired. I drove my mother's car back to school to tell the Coach and face the music.


The Coach as you may remember was a huge guy and very angry. But he did not kill me and for that I am still grateful.


Al got the repaired car back to the coach about 6:00 pm. 


The Coach was a calm guy and did not hold it against us. In fact he even rebated some of the money - seems he had previously done the same thing and had torn the fabric which we had replaced.




Send any stories or photos you would like to share to me and I will post them on this blog. craighullinger@gmail.com

Coach Wardeen required Allen to drive Craig home because Coach didn't trust Craig with the car alone (and look what still happened), and Craig had brought the away uniform for a home game, not forgotten it.

Thanks for the correction, Al. Last time I will ever borrow the Coaches care with you.  I am going to tell the famous Carlson Cherry Bomb Story / Grounded For Life Story next.
