Seasoned Veterans and Young Chicken

To all veterans: Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service!

To all Marines: Happy Marine Birthday!

This post is dedicated to Jennifer, a beautiful lady with a huge heart, originally from Jamaica, and a retired Marine. When I ran the school, Jennifer was my right hand, my left hand, and most of the time, the best half of my brain. As a true Marine, she had my back. I knew that everything would be superbly organized, taken care of, and under control, always done with a lovely smile and a kind word for children with special needs whom we were serving.

      1. During our leanest years, my brother and I used to give each other saffron for our birthdays because it was so expensive and we seldom had the extra money for the splurge, but would gladly spend it on someone else. We continued to do this throughout our adult lives. He died a few years ago, and I have the last pretty little tin he gave me. Every now and then, I’ll use just a thread or two. Always brings back good memories.

    1. Thank you so much, darling! Good is an understatement; phenomenal is the word. Jennifer and I are both retired now, but we still get together once in a while and cook up some ideas to benefit kids with special needs and their families.
