A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM JON
Being a new grandfather really makes time fly! My beautiful
granddaughter, Juliana, is the apple of my eye. She was born last September
and it’s been a joy. My friend, Angela Cartwright is working on
grandchild #2; Jerry Mathers is expecting his first later this year…seems
it’s that time for my gang.
I recently returned from a wonderful cruise to the Western
Caribbean with a great group of people who turned out for the Timmy
from “Lassie” Classic Hollywood Cruise with my wife, Laurie
Jacobson and me. Man, what a great time: 1,000 year-old Mayan ruins
in Belize and Cozumel, snorkeling in Roatan and lots of good times on
board telling tales from my career, showing film clips and Laurie’s
mysteries, scandals and ghostly tales of Hollywood…there was never
a dull moment. Check my Recollections page for some photos of our adventures.
So, I’m really excited to tell you that I will be
doing this again with Connection to Cruise in 2016 – this time
to Alaska with Royal Caribbean. You have lots of time to save your pennies
for this one. I’ll be posting more about it as we get closer to
August of 2016. I sure hope you’ll be able to join us this time.
And this year, I get to play Father of the Bride. My daughter
Katie will tie the knot in August. I am looking forward to that beautiful
day. And I have started restoring my very first car with my son, Ryan
– a 1968 Lotus Elan. We have wanted to do this forever and the
time is finally right. And I thought Medicare was going to be the best
thing about turning 65! Life has been very generous lately! Hope it’s
treating you well, too.
All the best,
