I went to see my old Sergeant from my Air Force days together today with Belle. Although she has retired from the forces (as I - some 11 years ago - gulp!), I still think of her as my Sergeant and she wont mind me saying this - but she wasn't half bossy! She "felt my collar" a few times when I made mistakes but learn from them I did and I have to say I have nothing but respect for her. I miss those days!
We have one of those freindships that you can leave for a while and pick up dead easy when you meet up again. We both lead very busy lives and I can never wait for the next time we get totether. Whenever I go to see her, I take her goodies from my card supplies in return that she makes me the curry of all ruby's. Lee is orginally from Kenya and was brought to this country in her teens. She has very traditional standards and has not lost her Hindu background, especially in the food department! She even made me more to take home and I swear our local takeaway has nothing on this hot momma curry.
I invited Lee to my wedding along with her husband and this lil girl in 1995. Well, I say lil, she was 2 at the time but now she is 14 and she is beautiful. She has that gorgous olive skin you would expect to see from a mixed race parentage - couldn't you just kill for that skin? Don't get me started on those lengthy-liscious lashes. Victoria is a smart lady who looked after Belle whilst Lee and I caught up. I love, love, loved my afternoon so much, I keep smiling just thinking back at it. Wishing for days like this to happen everyday would become a bore but I really cannot wait for our next rendezvous.
Peace perfect peace.
