THANKS, HENRY AND JAN!


Last week I received a very nice card from Henry and Jan DeVries to celebrate my retirement from the Navy. They also included a gift card for a favorite store of ours called Art of the Table. We used the gift card to purchase a bottle of Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuit, a French Burgundy. We selected the wine based on a recommendation of the store's sommelier. I made one of Dee's favorite dishes last night, a recipe called Tenderloin DeLuxe. That recipe is now posted in our Google East of the Equator Cafe group.

I didn't get anything when I retired....I think they were just glad to see me go...something about letting the door hit my a$$ on the way out...

You're welcome, Paul.

While you were there, did you stop in at the Wealthy Street Bakery bo buy some bread? It's the best.

It was a 'very purple teeth turning' kind of wine, the kind that you don't want to end because it is SO good. The kind that makes you eat and drink slowly and not talk ...because you can't believe HOW GOOD the wine is! Such a thoughtful gift from Henry and Jan! :)

I have not purchased anything, yet, at the Wealthy Street Bakery. I will take your advice and get something there, soon!
