Gene Vonlinger standing in front of the Dairy Freeze, where he has been a regular customer since his teenage years.  Stanford, Lincoln County.  September 4, 2002.  1:25 p.m. EDT.

Photographer's comments:
     Hanging inside the Dairy Freeze is a framed black-and-white photograph of Gene Vonlinger at age 16, sitting on the hood of his Ford, which was backed in against the white wall at the extreme left in this photo.  I sent Vonlinger a copy of this picture, and maybe it's now hanging beside the original.
     Vonlinger is a Stanford native and a welder by trade.  Note the torch lighter hanging at his belt.  He had just finished lunch and was heading back to his truck when this picture was taken.
     For some reason, the Dairy Freeze has an alternate name, the Cree-Mee Drive In.  I don't know why. 
More location information:
Near the intersection of US 27 and old US 150.
     Lincoln County is in the east-central part of the state, about 30 miles south of Lexington.
