Bonnie Jean says my book is good!

My sister Bonnie Jean Price of North Carolina called today to tell me that my book “Captains All” by me, Frank Ellsworth Lockwood, was really good! 

Thanks Bonnie Jean! I am glad you liked it. I hope you don’t mind if I post an old-time photo of you here.

Isn’t she a hearth throb? June 1961, kids! We remember when we had no telephone, not television, just a big radio in the living room.

We were raised in Santa Cruz, California. This photo was taken at our house on Brommer Street in the district of Live Oak, about a mile or so from the ocean. I believe this was an Easter photo.

The patio and wall were hand made by my dad, with me helping by mixing the concrete. I have many a happy memory of parties and family barbecues at that house. Our dad used to make the best hamburgers we ever tasted. Wish I could have one right now.

Thanks Bonnie for your careful read and generous comments.

Published by Frank Ellsworth Lockwood

Hello, my name is Frank Ellsworth Lockwood and I am the author of the novel, “Captains All,” formerly “The Final Cruise.” I now live in Kennewick, Washington with my wife Laura and our cat, Iggy. We share six adult children between us. Hobbies: I enjoy playing the guitar, writing, reading and blogging, and gardening. Work History: For about 15 years I taught school, including Migrant Education and English as a Second language in public schools. I also worked as a staff reporter at the weekly newspaper “The Hermiston Herald” for several years. Writing awards: I was honored with eight awards through the Oregon National Newspaper Association. Life Experiences: Include serving aboard ship (USS Los Angeles CA-135 and USS Frontier AD-25) in the US Navy, setting chokers as a logger, delivering milk house to house, repairing photocopiers, and many others. Book: “Captains All (The Final Cruise),” my first full-length novel has been available at Amazon, Kindle, Create Space, and other outlets worldwide. Please try https://www.amazon.com/Captains-All-Frank-Ellsworth-Lockwood/dp/1481988522. Green Party In November 2016, I became involved with organizing a new political party for our region. Green Party of the Mid-Columbia is recognized by Washington Greens and is responsible for evangelizing in five Washington counties: Benton, Franklin, Walla-Walla, Yakima, and Klickitat. Update as of April 25, 2021: With the events of Covid-19 beginning in 2020, my life changed considerably. I had retired and ceased working on novels (although I may start on another one in the future). Most of my time has been consumed with landscaping our half-acre on Rachel Road in Kennewick, Washington. Green Party activities have been mostly on hold and most of that has been turned over to younger folk. My wife Laura and I have been dealing with some aches and pains of older age, but still fairly active. To backtrack a bit, in 2003 my guitar buddy Richard Broker died. Jeannie Lockwood, my wife of 38 years, passed away in 2004. I married Laura in 2008. Please comment below: Your feedback is important to me. Thanks
