History of a Painting - Bonnie Doon Drive-in, S. Michigan Street, South Bend, Indiana. Acrylic Painting by Larry Johnston© Bonnie Doon Ice Cream started in 1941 and in 1944, opened up their first drive-in.  One of their most popular locations was on S. Michigan Street, in South Bend, Indiana.  At the time, when I frequented that location, there were 5 locations in the area. During my High School days, Michigan Street was a one way street going north and the next street over, Main Street was one way going south. Bonnie Doon and Azar's Big Boy sat next door to each other, so they became the hang out as the cars would drives through both establishments, go around the block and back through, over and over, eventually referred to as the marry-go-round.  The teenagers would sit on their cars ...

    I joined the Homes for Heroes program for a similar reason that my brother, who is an Army veteran and Home for Heroes Realtor joined. Our father nearly lost his life to a heart attack during a round of golf a few years ago. If it was not for the quick action of an off-duty firefighter who performed CPR on our father, he would not be with us today.    So, giving back to our community heroes is dear to my heart. Working as a mortgage loan originator has been a wonderful and fulfilling profession. I have been able to help borrowers realize the dream of home ownership and help past clients achieve their financial goals through refinance transactions. Although I feel great being able to help others, being able to give back to our local heroes in an even more impactful way has been an op...
