Reminiscences of Growing Up In Delaware, Ohio
It has been more than sixty years since anyone called author Ron Gabriel "Sonny." The nickname was bestowed upon him back in Delaware, Ohio. Sonny was a carefree kid who spent his days running around his Delaware neighborhood with his buddies, getting into the occasional scuffle and scrape. Sonny is the true account of a young man who lived out his days in the Midwest. Back then, there was no such thing as Little League; the kids made their own games instead, running and playing as they chose. As Sonny grew up, so did his interests. He bought his first car for forty dollars and nicknamed it "The Green Spleen." Eventually, he met the love of his life and became a husband and father -- and finally a grandfather.
Sonny offers a detailed recording of how the world once was - his world in Delaware, Ohio -- before the existence of cell phones and the Internet. Take a step back to another time, when things were more innocent, people moved a bit slower, and young Sonny dreamed of an unknown future. For native Delawareans, especially those who attended Willis, "SONNY"will certainly bring back lots of memories! Come join us as Ron Gabriel tells about his experiences growing up in the 40's and 50's in quaint Delaware, Ohio!
