An Edible Ode to Joe.

Last Friday, I had the privilege and honor of baking one last sugary treat for Joe Norris. He was my boss, mentor and great friend at Sullivan Higdon & Sink, and he retired at the end of December. The theme for the party was a ShamRockin' Winter Hoolie - an Irish Pub Party. So I volunteered to bake him a sugar cookie limerick. (Steve Hobson, another great copywriter friend of mine at SHS, actually wrote the limerick. Thanks much, Steve.)

Of course, Eric got roped into my craziness and had to build a special display board for the cookies. And he graciously offered to help me set everything up - keeping me calm when I realized, 45-minutes before the party started, that I'd forgotten to bake a freakin' word! It all worked out just fine though. Thank you, dear.

Many years ago, Joe once called me "Betty Crocker on Acid." So I couldn't let him retire without proving him right. Best wishes to a truly great, great guy. May your retirement years be sweet.
