This is my first post on this website. I am from Central IL, small town - Sullivan, IL. It is an hour southwest of Champaign and 30 minutes east of Decatur.

I have spent many hours browsing this website. I love the gallery and reading the forums. I just decided to finally post something. :P

Hey, stampin_is_fun... I'm glad you were able to compose your first post among your own people (we Illinois kids!) - Sullivan is where Josie from "Starting Over" is from, right? (Maybe you didn't watch the show, but I loved her!)... and I went to college in Champaign! Welcome to SCS and keep on posting!

Hi! We go through Sullivan every time we go to the in-laws. My mil lives in Effingham and my dh's grandparents live in Charleston. Actually, we stopped in Sullivan on Christmas day. We stopped to see a close friend who was visiting his mom.

Default starting over

That is so funny that someone referenced Starting Over here. I do believe that Josie was from Sullivan although they always said Decatur. God bless small towns! I grew up in a town of 1400! My graduating class had 36. Earlville though, is more well known than some might guess. I went to Europe and met people there that knew of Earlville. The world is a funny place where we are all 6 (or is it 7) people away from everyone.

Six degrees of separation Aubrey...a very scary and mostly true concept!

Hmmmm.....not sure about Josie. I know there was a guy on American Idol that is from here but they always announced he was from St. Louis. Had his name everywhere around here for a while. I have only been in Sullivan for just about a year. I work in Mattoon and have lived in both Mattoon and Charleston for the last 16 years. My first husband grew up in Charleston. My new husband lived and works in Decatur, so we split the difference.

Hey Holley! Did you go to EIU? I was there from Jan 89 to July 92. My dh's family was management at Wilb Walker for years. I was very sad to see that Wilb's son sold out to County Market!!

Hey Dawn. Yes, I went to EIU from Aug 85 to May 87 with a major in accounting. I transferred from a junior college. I used to shop at Walkers all the time. Is your husband from this area?

My dh is from Effingham, and both sets of grandparents were originally from Mattoon. Joe & Juanita (one set) moved to Charleston when Wilb opened his store in Charleston (the big one near where Walmart used to be). He managed that until he retired. His son Frank took over after that. My dh was a night manager there when he was attending EIU. He transferred into EIU from LakeLand.

Who knows. Maybe you went through my checkout lane once or twice!
