While most of my Food On A Stick friends are fellow artists and performers, a few are friends who have no career obligation to be near Food On A Stick. David and Charlotte are two such friends!
I met David and Charlotte five years ago through a car club. David worked for a tire distributor and had more knowledge about tires than anyone I had met before. He has never pointed me in the wrong direction when it comes to tires for any of my rides and helped with some wiring in my car that has helped me avoid speeding tickets. His lovely wife Charlotte is an incredible knitter and a nurse. She knits everywhere she goes and makes beautiful socks, scarves, sweaters… I overheard David telling another fella that once you wear her socks, you will never wear any other socks. If a tough guy tells his friends about his wife’s knitted socks, you know they must be fabulous!
David and Charlotte are retired, but even prior to retirement they traveled the world. They always come home with great photos and stories to share. I ask about the food in the countries they visit and admire how adventurous they are in their culinary travels. I believe it has been almost two years since they spent a few weeks in China, but they still never mention going out for Chinese food. Whether it is because they got their fill or not, I don’t know.
David hails from Memphis, Charlotte from southern Missouri. They have eaten at several restaurants owned by Food Network personalities and have been great to always share the real story about their food experiences. I can’t wait to see their Food On A Stick reviews!
