The Entertainer Newspaper article
Just ran across this article that was posted in the Entertainer several months back. I had not posted it because (I think at least that) this web page did not exist at the time. Enjoy:
Thanks to all of my good friends who have bought and read my book. If you have not seen it yet, you can find a copy now at: https://www.createspace.com/4133264
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.
