Jonco’s Journal – Vol. 9

Growing up, Dad would often take me to the ‘B. Dalton’ bookstore at Jamestown Mall, and to the local library. As an adult, he always had books around. I especially remember all the volumes of the ‘Uncle Johns Bathroom Readers” that he collected. He read historical type books or non-fiction mostly.

[Lots of news lately about the tearing down of Jamestown Mall.]

THIS – this is what I miss the most. I would go to him for advice – and he would encourage these attributes.

But he would always play ‘devils advocate’ if someone was stuck on an idea. EVEN IF HE AGREED with them – he would offer the opposite viewpoint for their consideration. He would’ve been a star in a debate club!! lol

  1. “Be friendly, helpful, try to teach, try to learn”
    Your Dad was the epitome of these words. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It’s nice to know he had good taste–Mad magazine used to be a great magazine and I read it while growing up. Like learning more about him through these journal postings.
