Dear Ivonne,

I’ll tell you the truth, my diet Dr Pepper with vanilla tastes like ambrosia! Heavenly! It goes with chicken or beef or salad, (no snob I!), I don’t mind if the saved half is flat the next day, as long as I stow it in the fridge & it’s nice & cold.

The African gentleman is a better & a more patient person than I am, for sure. When people snap at me, killing then with kindness is the last thing I want to do, I tend to want to snap right back. I’d want to call that mean lady everything BUT the child of God! Ha! But I suppose that’s when some people might need more love, not less. He saw that, that’s how he won the meanness over with kindness.

He did make me think, which resulted in a blog, which made other people think. And thinking is a good thing. 🤔😁
