Heath Chips and Peanut Butter Cookies

December 24, 2011

Lately I have been seeing many recipes with candy involved and I have tried a few and I am partial to a few candies, but have never said no to ANY candy.  Years ago when I did not have enough seniority to fly with two of my best friends, (Rudy Popolo; Service Manager and Louis Pierre Sancelot; Purser ) sometimes I would be working the same flight but a day behind them.  That means they had already left the hotel in the morning when I arrived but without fail the Concierge at all of the hotels on those mornings would call me over to his desk (smiling) with a special package from them and yes, it was always candy.  Both of them knew about my terrible times of some nights of no sleep with the time change, but more importantly they knew if I did not have sweets in my room I would be walking the streets to find some.  They worked for TWA during the time of Howard Hughes and they brought years of experience, history, Hollywood, gossip, love and so much laughter with them.  I remember them every day and miss them more than that.
