Last time I visited my kids at OSU we went to lunch at Pot Belly's. My son had an internship at the State House across the street from PotBelly's. Hey I used to work with Dean Gordon, he should be in charge of Purchasing over there. We need to catch up...
Jeff Crook, how the hell are you? We worked together at TGIF's. A long time ago (1988), in a world far, far away (Plano, TX.) with Tom Mazza as our fearless RM. Anyway, good to see you again and what a beautiful family. Take care.
Thanks Jeff. Had no idea the amount of people I'd find here. Checked it out on a whim. Always feel free to give me a buzz when you need to or if I can help in any way.
Love how personal you can make it.
Crookie - great family photos. Don't need to ask you what's keepin you busy! Love to hear what you are up to and how you are liking potbelly. I'm sure you are making a difference there as you did at t&K. Life is good for me. I'm working with Amanda Hite and a host of others for Talent Revolution. We are having a blast and actually making some money which is always a good thing. Enjoy those precious moments with your kids and give my regards to Cindy. Please stay in touch. BC
