It’s not that I have a “thing” about Bill Cellini, but every time I stay in at hotel or motel, I look at the shower curtain rod.
It usually is curved.
And Bill Cellini came up with that idea and put them in his Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Springfield.
Couldn’t get a suite there during Old Capitol Art Fair weekend for less than $600, so we stayed at the Drury Inn near the coal smoke spewing coal-fired electric power plant.
And guess what I saw.
A curved shower rod inspired by Bill Cellini.
Later we had lunch with friends who had run into Bill and Julie Cellini.
The friends told of how friendly the couple was.
Guess nothing much has changed since I worked for him on a mayoral campaign in 1971.
