Today is Jonathon’s birthday!
He is 35 years old and has an untold number of friends!
Everywhere I go with Jonathon…there are countless greetings from people that know him and smile and are glad to see him!
People matter to Jonathon Brooks. He never sees a stranger and has a kind word for all he encounters!
When he worked at SIUC’s Food Service, the students formed a Fan Page for him…and it is still going…several years after he transferred to Key Control.
Jonathon is a writer and he reads his works at the Longbranch Cafe in Carbondale, Illinois on, most, Friday evenings.
He is an, avid, reader. Not like the Seinfeld episode titled, ‘Bizzaro World,’ where Elaine was commenting on; Jerry, George, and Kramer’s, bizarre opposites, stating that, ‘They read, Jerry,’ whereupon Jerry retorts, ‘I read,’ and Elaine replies, ‘Books…Jerry…books!’
Aaron, Jonathon, and I are vintage vinyl records aficionados. Early, tomorrow morning we are going to our local record store, Plaza Records, to celebrate, Record Store Day!
I look back on the years and I realize that they have flown by much to quickly. I am, extremely, happy that Mary Jane and I are able to be with our sons on a regular basis and that they still enjoy our company.
So, if you want to know a great guy…and have a lifelong friend…and, ladies,…a good catch…need I say more?
