An interesting postcard from this week's postcard auction. (North Carolina - Fort Bragg, motorized balloon rigging crew.)

Oh I like that place, Walks.  I'll look for it during the auctions.

Leonard Freeman (the producer of the original Hawaii Five O) liked it so much, that name was used for Steve McGarrett's arch nemesis - China's super spy, the evil Wo Fat.

Sadly the restaurant is gone now but as a huge Hawaii Five O fan, I was lucky to eat there once.

I found out through the site Find A Grave that, somewhere along the line, the Sproatts left Indiana and moved to Ohio.  Carl was a PFC in the Marines during WWII and he received a Purple Heart.  He passed away on August 10, 2008 at the age of 81.  Doris outlived her husband of 55 years and she passed away on January 19, 2012.

Learned a little more.  Carl served in the 6th Marine Division and was horribly wounded during the invasion of Okinawa - no hang nail
Purple Heart for him.

Doris was a Ball State graduate who taught Spanish and Business and had a kind smile:

Near as I can tell all is well with her - she has her Mom's kind smile in her photo on LinkedIn.  Wasn't 100% sure as the path took an unexpected turn but the smile is a clincher I think.  It would seem she has had a career where she has actually helped people.
