IMO, an old baseball players name would mean more than food. Only so many remember ball players, games, positions... games.... Kind of in a Brooklyn Dodgers kind of way...
I like grits. the only place to get them in Denver is Waffle House

Hello, Benjaman~ Great to see you on WS!

I know you are tired of endless questions. Thanks for taking the time to answer them here.

There was a question about the surgical pin having numbers before. Was this ever addressed?

I'm thinking along the lines of Michael Jordan playing with the flu and scoring X points.... or maybe an opening day event for the Rockies.... or some promotional give away at a sporting event.

Does he have any memories of the names of childhood friends? Classmates from HS? Maybe a bully who picked on him-or someone he bullied? A favorite teacher-or a teacher he couldn't stand? A childhood crush? A school team name and/or mascot? A DJ he used to listen to on the radio. The call letters of his favorite radio station?

There maybe something small, that he feels is insignificant but very researchable to narrow an area and a time and expand from there
I do not care fot sports if I had to watch the games my preference would be, in order Baseball, Basketball,Football,NASCAR

The reason I am asking this, my husband is from Ms. and I, from La.
My preferred foods: steak and brown gravy on rice
My hubby preferred food: steak and potato with butter
southern people love grits, up north alot of places don't have it and probably don't know what it is.
My husband would prefer to eat tomato gravy with his biscuits
I would prefer bacon with the biscuit, and white sausage gravy.
My hubby is not big on seafood. Well I'm a cajun, I am sure you know what I like.
How would he spell the word crawfish? crayfish?
Prefer salmon, trout or catfish, bass, tilapia, tuna?
Likes lobster? or shrimp?
I grew up on rabbit, seafood, beef and pork.
My husband, deer, turkey, beef and pork.
Some people I know from up north, eat lots of deer and elk.
What are your food eating habits. Does Ben like homemade soups and if so, what would he like in these soups?
Gumbo, no tomatoes in mine, but friends I know from Ca. like tomatoes in there gumbo.
He may not even know what Gumbo is, but if he does what would he like in it?
Something to think about. Maybe Ben can give us some feed back, may help to weed down even further, the states.

Both
Never heard of tomato gravy
Steak
All Three
I do not like meat in my biscuits-biscuits are for butter and jelly(Jam)
Crawfish
Salmon,and Shrimp
Roast Turkey
Tomatoes, Shrimp,File, Brown rice

On the east coast we have a product called Entenmann's - has he ever had one? for some reason my image isn't hotlinking, I have the photo here Entenmann's raspberry danish twist

We also have Taylor Ham aka pork roll, people fry this up and throw it on a hard roll with cheese, some times an egg.
Coffee-Tea is only good with ice.

Oatmeal and eggs for breakfast
Entenmann's started out in San Francisco when they expanded nationwide a lot of route drivers made a lot of money because it was such a big hit. Baked goods(Sweets) is the best way to ingest surgar. Entenmann's is good!!!!

I never heard of Taylor Ham,but I have heard of pork roll-never ate just read of it somewhere

Thanks Benjaman for coming onto WS site and answering these questions. I really appreciate it and I would guess, other posters do as well.

Thank you Mr. Kyle for answering so many of our questions. Some of them had me smiling and laughing.

I'm gonna guess if you recall people talking about Dick Biondi's 'knock knock' joke, you must have been within the listening area of WLS am 890 at the time the joke was told on air. I guess I have some homework to do- and see if I can find out the date that joke was told on air, and how far the station broadcast during Biondi's show. that would give us a possible time and limit of area's you were in at the time.


I know AM radio broadcasts pretty far during the evening, and quite possibly covered a several state area.......

As for grits, I know they are sold in grocery stores in the Chicago area, so I imagine they aren't too hard to purchase.

ETA: WLS AM 890 could have been heard, hundreds if not a thousand miles away in the evenings, so it is unlikely this would specify an area.

Mr. Kyle,

Do your memories of Burger Chef include both Indiana and Colorado? Or just Indiana?

My theory is, if your first job was at Burger Chef- that would explain your memories of the head quarters, as all training was done at the HQ, (if I read correctly.) If you recall any Burger Chef in Colorado it is possible you may have transfered there upon your move to Colorado.

I remember several BC's in Colorado. Longmont, Aurora near 6th ave. their empty buildings were all over Colorado.
I have vague memories of them-I looked them up on the Internet recently.

It was addressed. X-rays did not show any. If there are any they would have to remove the screw to examine it-I will not allow that to happen.

Do you remember Divco-Wayne or Wayne Corporation, in Richmond, Indiana? And what they made?

Do you know the national park system and walking trails in Indiana?

Is there a special brand of Coffee and/or oatmeal you prefer?

For myself, I don't think you ever lived in or around Toledo, Ohio(at least for a long period of time). My experiences there for 2 years, I never found a place that had grits only hashbrowns. Waffle house in Harrison, Oh (on the Indiana/Ohio line) served grits, I ate there often, because of the grits. In Chicago area, Napersville and Romesville?, I ate at the Waffle Houses, but can't remember if there were grits.

NB, Ben thank you for answering these questions.
PS, Louisiana had many Burger Chef's.

Mr Kyle, is it possible your work could have been in a hospital cafeteria or school rather than a restaurant that customers came into? No one had touched upon that so thought it might joggle your memory if you had indeed worked in one of those facalities.

Hello Mr. Kyle -
I hope you check back with WB -
You had said in an interview you thought you had 3 brothers - was there a certain game you remember playing with them, like cards, outdoor stuff, etc..
or maybe the way they talked/things they may have said, or just fleeting images of brothers?

Welcome Benjaman!

Arvada has grown a lot since the 80's. We transplanted to CO and I'm not familiar with all the areas, just trying to think of what I saw along the way. We'd pass through Empire to head toward Denver for shopping.

I wish I could think of more, being stuck up in the mountains didn't help me learn too much about the Denver area. I would like to wish you the best on your search and thank you for answering all the questions here.

Need Clarification please

Mr. Kyle,

Is your knowledge of the restaurant industry solely food service equipment, or does it also include food itself. For example one would order their food supplies for a restaurant from such and such a place, say Steak from X company, Seafood from X company....

When I complete my email for Bob- with R3 Distribution, I would like to give him as accurate information regarding your restaurant knowledge as possible in order to focus on getting your info to those specific to that area of the industry.

Thanks a million! And some of your replies crack me up! You seem to have a great sense of humor.

Wiki Update- memory of House on the Rock- Spring Green, WI

Mr. Kyle,

Do you happen to recall the driving time your parents may have driven during childhood family vacations?

I can't get it out of my head, that you may have moved from the Indianapolis area to the NW Indiana area. Particularly due to the memory of your possible birth date being exactly 10 years to the day of Michael Jackson. You seem a little older than the age range I would have expected to be big Jackson 5 fans during the mid 60's to early 70's.... Unless it stood out, because you were living closer to the NW area of IN during their prime.

Now, this House on the Rock, is closer to the Madison area, and also Wisconsin Dells - which had (has) the Tommy Bartlett Water show. It seems like a longer drive than one might make from Indianapolis, as opposed to the NW IN, or NE IL area's.

On another note, while I being from the Chicago area had never heard of Burger Chef until you mentioned it, I did research locations and there were some in the far south - south west burbs of Chicago - (closer to the indiana/IL border).

Any thoughts on having spent time in the NW IN area or any recollection of how long your parents drove for vacations? were they 2-3 hour trips or a trip which might have taken 7 plus hours?

Thanks!
Cubby
