Re: “Beal's Dixie Kream - Olive Branch, Mississippi

if you look on Old Highway 78 on Google maps street view there are a couple of buildings there. One that says John's Creek Cafe but doesn't look like the same building. There is a smaller building to the north of that but looks too small to be it.

Re: “The Sno Cream Castle

I used to live on Rhodes near Getwell as well. Loved having a Tops within walking distance!

Re: “Miss McKellar Lake

Yes they did have organized powerboat racing in Kilowatt Lake. I think it wasthe late '70s. One of the racers got killed there and I don't think they ever had racing again.

Re: “Visit LAKELAND on the next "Southern Routes"

I remember riding "Huff and Puff" as a kid and they would have some guys come out of the woods and rob the train. Also the skyride was my favorite. Lakeland Raceway actually had quite a history. Not sure if anything is left of it anymore but you can see the remains of it on Google maps satellite view behind the outlet mall. Here is a website for history of the racetrack.
