It was an honor to help Mr. Mickey celebrate a new chapter in his life. After more than forty-four years of owning his industrial supply company (the last of many businesses he has owned), he visited his warehouse one last time to turn over the keys to the new owner.
One of Mr. Mickey’s favorite combinations for me to wear is a blue top with white pants. The pants are from Liverpool Jeans a couple of summers ago. The top is also a couple of years old, as are the shoes, so I’ll link to similar items that are still available.
He is looking forward to tossing that walker aside soon.
It was a bittersweet moment when Mr. Mickey handed over the keys to his last building to the new owner, John Speropulos.
During a non-pandemic time, there would have been a big party with two hundred of his closest friends to celebrate this momentous occasion. We made the most of the situation.
Later in the evening, he arrived at my home for celebratory French Champagne and sliced warm baguette. I also served sharp cheddar cheese, Stilton cheese, hummus, apple butter, fig and walnut jam, and olives. Dessert to go with our last glasses of champagne included chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Congratulations, Mr. Mickey! I hope you enjoy your life of leisure. You have certainly earned it.
