As you all know, I have been saying for the past three years that I live in the best place on Earth and have the best job on the island. It has been a pleasure to serve all of you and simply wanted to state my gratitude for the wonderful gifts you have given me as going away presents.
I watched as our fabulous string director Mrs. Wright received a beautiful, fresh bouquet of flowers. Little did I know that I was about to receive a live tree with two teenage boys to plant it for me. Life is good! Nor was I ready for the mouth-watering gift of a dinner for two at Ship Bay. Lofty thoughts raced through my head as I reasoned that one could visit once and spend it all or make three astute investments into culinary pleasure by ordering two hors d’oeuvres at three separate visits. Oh, such a quandary to entertain!
For those of you who have seen the movie “Mr. Holldand’s Opus,” it was a night not unlike his. A perfect ending to a wonderful way to pass on one’s passion. Thank you.
