Everyday Observations

As my husband and I are traveling back and forth between our two homes, I rely upon my favorite Chinese delivery restaurant in Naples because nearly all of our kitchen utensils are in Amelia Island as we will be officially moving on Saturday.

I’ve never become more proficient with chopsticks. 🙂

Tonight, I ordered my favorite menu- dim sum, kung pao chicken/shrimp and sauteed green beans.This is a minor thing but our regular delivery boy who is Romanian showed up this evening and hugged me and said:

“I’ll miss you and your endless American friendliness and generosity. You are lucky to have been born here.”

Let’s remember this y’all.

  1. I feel the same way Hyp; often we take for granted we are perceived by foreigners in a negative light (see Trump visit to England) and I welcome the reminder of the perspectives/characteristics that make us unique.

    President Trump does have friends in England.   When they finally pull off the Brexit, I hope to see President Trump schedule a Trump Rally in honor of Nigel Farage.   It will be yuge.

    foreigners

    I have had several foreigners express admiration and gratitude for America.   It is not uncommon.

    Mass media used to regularly treat us to such testimonials.   Over the past few decades they switched to only sharing anti-American sentiments.   Now the only place you see pro-American sentiment from foreigners is in conservative niche media and Readers Digest.
