"Just Hangin' Out, Ma"
Anecdotes and Tales from the Old Neighborhood, Lawrence - My Hometown
Richard Edward Noble
Thank God for the street corners of Lawrence, Ma and being able to "hang out."
I started writing stories about the old gang and hangin' out when I was about eighteen years old. Then life came along and got in my way. But now I'm back. As far as I am concerned, I'm stronger and better equipped to do justice to the old gang and the street corners that made our hangin' out so memorable.
This is my first book on this subject and it covers more than just the variety stores, drug stores and street corners of my youth. It branches out into barrooms, nightclubs, poolrooms, bowling alleys and the complete Full Monty of the "I'm just hangin' out, Ma" experience.
I hope you all enjoy the experience, feel the love, get the jokes, and have some laughs.
