I’m really from East Enterprise, Indiana, grew up on a small farm just outside of there. When I lived there with my parents—just a few miles away from East Enterprise—it had two grocery stores, a barber shop, a couple churches, a pool hall and a gas station that closed. It was a hole in the road type of town.
The mailing address for my parents was Rural Route Two, Rising Sun, Indiana, 47040, so maybe I’m from Rising Sun but that was really just our mailing address. I spent very little time there.
I spent most of my time in Vevay. That’s where I went to high school and where I hung out with my friends.
I graduated from Switzerland County High School in 1972. Switzerland County is where Vevay is, so most of the time I say I’m from Vevay.
