A sad and happy mixed emotion as the Voice of the Toronto Blue Jays, Jerry Howarth hangs it up and retires after 36 years!
I met Jerry at CJCL is Toronto when I was on job week from Canadore Radio in 1983.
Decades later, I was in the Rogers Broadcast Facility up high in the Rogers Center and Jerry was in the booth.
He said he remembered touching base with me oh so many years ago! He DOES keep all his notes! LOL

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you today! It’s my most favourite day of the Year……I try to keep up the romance everyday, not just on February 14th!
I love seeing people holding hands at 80 and walking hand in hand in public, showing their affection for each other and I think in the World today, with all of the stress and strain and need to ‘ Go Go Go!’ it’s a nice sight for these sore tired eyes…

I do feel blessed to have this today and I understand those that don’t feel the same way. Someone wrote” EFF Valentines’ Day” in a Facebook Meme…..sad really…Cheers to hoping everyone finds happiness in their lifetime.
