Remembering better days with John Caron.
During these difficult times of the pandemic, we’ve all got some sort of cross to bear. It can certainly be overwhelming. Recently, I spent a couple of hours chatting with good friend John Caron. John owns both West End Johnnies and Fenway Johnnies. We discussed the pandemics’ impact on his businesses and then we reminisced about “the good old days”. It was nice for just an hour or so to remember what makes us who we are and celebrate life no matter how difficult it can be. Life is Good!
