An Extraordinary Man

My RAK for tonight was for Kendall Parker.  Ken has become quite the regular since last fall.  Ken and his wife Dottie used to come in together every once in a while, but since she passed away in October, Ken comes in a few times a week.  They were engaged after dating for 2 weeks, married 2 years later, and had 64 amazing years together. Ken celebrated his 91st birthday in April and despite the loss of his wife, is still going strong.  I met Ken in October during a table visit, and I always try and sit with him for a while, I love talking with him.  Ken is also a veteran of WWII, he was a radio operator in the south pacific.  When I explained about staff matters and putting his picture up and a little explanation of who he was, he insisted that I tell everyone that he thinks I’m charming. 🙂  I love this promotion!  Our guests are so happy!
