JEAN'S MESSAGE - AND EASY REFRIGERATOR PICKLES
I know none of you asked Marilyn or Richard to put New York State of Mind on. But Richard made up New York State of Mind and Marilyn has provided not only my posts, but Elmer, Anna's, Martha's and more. She has traveled to get pictures to put on here. You have been following New York State of Mind and are greatly appreciated.
To take these pictures and go to these places cost money for gas. The day of the Fair, the camera died and no longer works. Marilyn took it to her camera repair man and it can no longer be repaired. It is just worn out. Marilyn does not have the money to replace it, at this time. So she can't take any new pictures until she gets another camera.
Marilyn lives on Social Security. She has a part time job but she only gets paid if she fills in for one of the bosses which only happens once or twice a day per month. This pay is very small.
What it comes down to is - would anyone consider donating to a fund that would provide her with money for gas and maybe replacement of the camera. She is not looking for a big fancy camera, but one that would take pictures and has a zoom on it. If you can not afford or do not want to donate, we understand that, but if you could spare a few dollars, it would be greatly appreciated. She would set this money aside for New York State of Mind.
This is the reason we were thinking of starting the cookbook. We thought that maybe she could make some extra money for New York State of Mind expenses. Right now we are trying to figure if the cost of printing, etc. would leave a profit or not.
So to start this off, I am going to donate to Marilyn. If you would like to donate you can send to Pay Pal on firstname.lastname@example.org
Believe me it would be greatly appreciated.
My recipe is below.
Be With God,
