This is what my happy hour neighbors made for me. Yes, that is what I call my neighbors G & C. At least once a month in the winter and several times a month in the summer, I walk across the street to enjoy happy hour with my 80+ year old neighbors G & C. In the summer we sit out on their patio which is three stories up and watch all the neighborhood action. We live just a few steps away from a lake that has trails for walking, running, biking and roller blading, as well as a band shell that hosts a concert every night from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Never a dull a moment during the warm months.
Every Christmas I make carmels (caramels) for them and G makes me a wooden spoon. I don’t know about you but I can ever seem to have enough wooden spoons. During a recent happy hour G showed me the salad utensils that he had made for one of their children (they have 10 between them…they each lost a spouse 30+ years ago and were lucky enough to find each other 28 years ago). I think he got the hint I wanted a set because of my enthusiastic reaction.
Last week when G & C came over for lunch they brought me my own set, handmade by G. He is an incredibly talented woodworker. LOVE ‘em. Plan to donate all the other salad tools I own. Thank you G!
Thanks for stopping by…
