Steve's latest book isn't about video editing

Steve's latest book isn't about video editing

Postby Steve Grisetti » Wed Jan 27, 2021 10:01 am

As a winter Covid project, I proposed to some local Facebook friends that we put together a book of memories of growing up in small town Ohio in the 1960s. More than two dozen people responded with stories and pictures, and I'm really proud of the result.

If you're at all interested, it's dirt cheap on Amazon. And free to preview.

Great fun, huh?

Cool Steve I also purchased a kindle copy of your book too. Looking forward to the read.

If this is like your PE books I am guessing I will be able to get around Wooster like a local... :CS: Which means I should be able to find out the locations of witness protection movie you made as a kid (sorry forgot the name)
... yesssss

You won't be disappointed Sidd. I just read the first 20 pages while attending yet another Zoom meeting, and feel like I could navigate the town :-D

It's funny how small towns back then seemed to have the same types of stores, although with different names. I loved going to the hobby store in my home town, although your town was a metropolis compared to mine Steve. The quote that mentioned 'trash can Annie' struck me. We had Percy in our town. He was an old man that would sit in front of the Rexall, which we would ride our bikes to to get 5 cent cherry cokes at the counter. He scared the hell out of us. He would wear 4-5 winter coats even if it was 90 degrees outside, and carried around a stack of very old newspapers. I never heard him say a word. I found out later in high school that he was a WWI veteran that was shell shocked. It tuned out he was actually fairly well off. My high school sweethearts dad took care of his finances for him and made sure he was taken care of, basically just looking out for another vet.

In downtown Milwaukee about 20 years ago, I used to see these two old ladies. They were clearly twins, and they always dressed alike in light blue jackets with white mittens. All day every day I'd see them walking around downtown, pulling a suitcase on wheels behind them.

I finally sent an email to a local radio station. They read it on the air and invited their listeners to tell these women's stories.

It seems they were twins. One was legally blind, so the other constantly led her around. They weren't poor but they weren't wealthy either. They just lived together downtown and went for walks whenever the weather would allow.

Love these kinds of local stories!

After enjoying the first few pages of Steve's book it reminds me a program I have been watching on Amazon Prime. Its a 1/2 hour show called Still Standing with Jonny Harris.

"Still Standing" is a mix of a comedy series and a reality series and features actor and comedian Jonny Harris. Harris travels across Canada to discover the hidden gems in small towns. He takes a heart-warming journey to find humor in the unlikeliest of places. He immerses himself into the town's culture as well as into the lives of its residents. He unearths tall tales during his stay before hosting a stand-up comedy routine to help draw attention to these small towns.

I was surprised to learn recently that in the past 10 years I've managed to publish more than four dozen books! Now, granted, many of those are just updates to books on previous versions of software but --- Dang! I'm a regular cottage industry!

Congrats on the new book Steve! I started a journal right before Covid with random memories. One page memories that I thought my daughters may enjoy reading when I'm gone. They are random in order because I jot something down when it pops in my head. I am keeping it all positive memories.

Steve, cancelled postage stamps were collected for charity. They were sold to collectors. I hadn't thought of that until I read your remark, but I remember it now.

I'm up to the 'TV, Radio, and the Daily Record' chapter. We had a guy like Ghoulardi around Baltimore, but he was more of a science fiction host. I would have loved this guy!

That's Cleveland's Ghoulardi, all right! He was so popular that other affiliates picked up the show.

His real name was Ernie Anderson, and after he moved to California he became the voice of ABC TV in the 1970s in and 80s. Remember "Tonight on.... The Looooooove Boat." That was him.

His son, Paul Thomas Anderson, is a terrific is somewhat eccentric movie director. He calls his production company Ghoulardi Productions.

My book has been met with great response.

So, just because I can't leave well enough alone, here's a sampling of the book read in my best Ohio accent.
