About Me

I've been married to Chet for 26 years...we have two children together and Chet came into our marriage with two children! (all together, we have 2 girls and 2 boys!) 31, 29, 23 and 21 years old. Yikes! I can't believe I am old enough to have kids those ages! I was born in Louisiana where my Grandparents were cotton sharecroppers and I'm very proud of my cajun heritage. The photo above is my mother, Georgiana Smith Linde at 8 years old. She passed away when I was very young, but she carries on in my heart forever... My hubby supports my endless rabbit trails of creativity and he gets extra "points" for that! Thank you for visiting my swirly glittered- up world filled with paint, glass & ribbon...share the love...leave a comment! Email me! I'd love to hear from you! sharifrench@gmail.com

"Where's Little JOHNNY?"

Ok, this is a first....As most of you know..Mr. Hubby and I own and operate a Mexican Restaurant in Sandpoint, Idaho called Jalapeno's.
This is a first...and we've been in business for over 20 years....

Nice family comes in for dinner - 2 parents/4 children

Nice family has dinner

Nice family writes check, we thank them for coming in

Nice family gets in car and drives off

A few minutes later, a nice little boy emerges from the bathroom, & looks around
for the rest of his Nice Family

Nice little boy starts crying because he can't find his Nice Family, for they have gone bye-bye

We comfort the Nice Boy from the Nice Family, but he continues to cry and doesn't know his phone number

We continue to comfort Nice Boy (after all, most of us are mommys!)

We scramble to find out who Nice Family is and are relieved when we find out they wrote a check with cell phone numbers printed on it

We call Nice Family who are well on their way home with their other children

We alert them that they left Nice Boy #4 in the restaurant alone

Nice Family returns to claim their Nice Boy

Question: (at least in my mind) Ya think one of the other Nice Children would have said "Where's Little Johnny?" before they sped off the first time!!

All is well in the Nice Family and Jalapeno's staff is relieved

Whew! We could write a book! (but this was a FIRST)

reminds me of when I was 4 and was left at the grocery store. There were 2 younger siblings, mom thought I was hiding under the seat! I'll have to come check out your restaurant when we come visit Sandpoint this summer! Coming from South Texas I love Mexican Food! I have yet to go see your art at Belle Boutique but it is on my list of things to do.
