"Living in the Cloud: Lessons From the Streets by John (Johnny) Crowe is a fun-filled and intriguing story about growing up in small town America in the ‘60's. John’s hometown of St. Cloud, Florida is the featured venue where the people living in St. Cloud at this time in American History seem to come alive in the heart and mind of the reader as the storyline unfolds."

Foreword by Dale McCullars

John’s wife, Betty, aptly calls the book a love letter to John’s hometown. “I tried to capture the best of times I experienced in the Cloud, and how the lessons learned during that time shaped my life.” John Crowe author.

"If you are like me, you will have flashbacks to your personal experiences and adventures." says Glenn Knapp, classmate.

No matter your age, when or where you grew up, you will enjoy and relate to John’s stories and you will remember your growing up during a particular time in America’s history.


In Living in the Cloud :Lessons From the Streets Johnny captures special memories that most of us can relate to. I enjoyed those we shared growing up together. The book brought to mind the times we played and worked together. As I read each page, I could identify with Johnny’s passion for those fun days growing up in a simpler and less complex time. We played on the high school teams together, and the lessons from the experience carried over into our careers and lives. It isn’t surprising to me that we would both major in mathematics, serve our country and retire as military officers and veterans. We were like brothers then and still are. Like Johnny, I am thankful for being a member of the SCHS Class of 1965. We had great times cruising the Cloud in my Jeep -“Old Nellie” I am glad today Johnny owns a Jeep and he is still enjoying the ride. I highly recommend this story about the valuable lessons learned growing up in a small town like Cloud. I know you will enjoy the journey!

Oscar Simmons,Retired Colonel, United States Army

Living in the Cloud :Lessons From the Streets is about a time and place when life was much simpler and less complex. It warms the heart to go back in time when you were surrounded by classmates and the most important thing on your schedule was Friday night football and the only worry was what you were going to wear to the dance after the game. It will put a smile on your face.

Dwaine Hawthorne, Retired Construction Supervisor and Navy Veteran

Living in the Cloud :Lessons From the Streets will jog thoughts of your youth and spark memories that are special to you. If you are like me, you will have flashbacks to your personal experiences and adventures. While you likely won’t know the persons Johnny is writing about, you will think of similar persons from your past. Reading each chapter, I discovered and confirmed the many lessons and values I share with Johnny.
