Hello, people. I try to write like you and I could sit down together and read it. I really do not publish until I like the story.

This Guy

Well a few years later and he his cooking for us both. He loves but sometimes adds too much spice.

Sorry Got To Go Have Fun In The Kitchen, We Have Backup

Oh dittely dumb what have I done

Feel in love with my chef what be run

Run away from my bride so fair

Or should I run away to anywhere

Hell to pay is my honest due

Better to taken rather than to do

I am sure more honest good men

Have fallen for her and she them

I got no calling near or far

Just one more cook and there we are

But speak not that she is my boss

That would be a much bigger loss

A guide and counselor I would say

So my dishes turn out some day

My son is learning to cook from me

But he sees not me but the chef that be

In our home we refuse to do well

That not ring the great dinner bell

We insist on the best that we can do

And sometimes that means our evening food

She toils and tries to do her ultimate best

That sets her above the rest

So tonight an entrée tart but first a salad for to start

We will try so hard to make it a work of art.

For fine Linda we will find that fine mark

Linda Lum you fill our homes with hopes and dreams

To please young Linda it quite seems.

      To my embarrassment I am not familiar with Linda Lum, but your poem has given a reflection of her talents.

      Sean, Sorella mi amore. Or something like that in Italiano, I am rusty in use. I need to go back to practice. "My sister, my love". She is ours. And so shall it be forever.

      Manatita, I got woken up by a 9 year jumping on me (well really a laying meditation not sleep) How much fun can we have? Rain today in our desert we hope. We have to go get some blankets for our folks who live outside.

      Dora, he did hot cocoa tonight for us both, then he is slicing the tomato and onion for salad. Linda has taught to love food when he needed to. What a blessing.

      Flourish the feast days are upon us, a 3 mile walk on the beach with running and jumping and a short hike up the cliffs. We are good to go for gluttony. Linda will lead our way.

      Ruby do not even think about it,,,,

      Shoot her a note and you are on your way to gluten free heaven. (Now I argued that Gluten intolerant is fair to say for Celiacs disease) (sp) We must get the word out for more people to be aware.

      Pamela maybe she will want to down and enjoy our beautiful beaches when it gets a little too wet up. But she better call ahead with ingredients. Loving life!!!

      Eric, I am having difficulty finding the words to express my thoughts and feeling. I’m a writer—this should come easy. There is a quote by Ann Frank that is appropriate:

      “Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because regret is stronger than gratitude.”

      What that means is that most people wait until a loved one has passed away to share their feelings, to open their hearts and create the perfect poignant eulogy. You have taken the time and energy to express your feelings and share them here . . . while I’m still able to read and hear them. You are a special person indeed and I treasure your friendship.

      I’ve much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day—and you are certainly one of those things.

      I'm sitting at my desk, eating gluten free ham and cheese green beans and a half banana. Since I found out I was gluten intolerant, my diet has changed drastically. Maybe knows a good recipe with no gluten.

      I wish I could bottle up Linda and spray some of her kindness on me daily. It would make me a better man for sure.
