Remember my post about my Dad’s published short stories in the 70s? Blogged about it here. I framed the front pages which are now lovingly displayed at my home.
Love these. 🙂
Funny story, was hanging out with my Dad last night and he told me that back in 1970 when his articles were published in the local Free Press magazine (no longer existent) he was paid a fee of P85 per story. There was also a contest in the same publication where the winner bagged a major prize of P1,000. The winner used that cash prize to pay for a US trip. Unbelievable. Now for P1,000, that will just be about enough to buy you a pair of jeans. 🙂
