There is a local restaurant, a cafeteria actually, called Jackson’s Cafeteria in Gastonia. Bob passed away last night. He was a very nice man who has fed the public good food at a reasonable price for 35 years. I sure hated to hear that. He was a man who kept his finger on the pulse of his businesses. At one time he owned 10 restaurants, he was down to three.
A few weeks ago as was his habit he was going from table to table visiting. They came to our table. He did not know me but he knew Vernon (Sherry’s bro). Vernon has had him appear as a guest entertaining seniors. Bob was an accomplished musician and singer. Anyway Mrs. Jackson commented on my hat while the others were visiting. I asked Sherry to find out the size. That night I ordered him one from a website that sells the original handmade Greek fisherman’s hats, size 7. The next week I took it in when we went to eat, The Jacksons were not in that night. I left the hat with his son.
Shirl saw Bob and he said he was thrilled with the hat and told Vernon the same. I am glad I did that for a warm sweet man, loved by his customers and staff. RIP Bob Jackson, 86.
Hope you are enjoying Spring, I am trying not to fuss about the rain considering the drought we were in.
Thanks for coming this way.

No one knows when their end will come, the idea is to have the ticket bought , paid for and kept up to date.
