Knight's Gambit

 

continued

Yet Mary says that in all the years she worked at the market, she never considered making changes. "Never." And then she explains why: "My husband is a German person. . . . The man is master."

Without missing a beat, Joan chimes in, "and we are compliant Irish girls."

"I am happy," says Mary. "I have five children. I've had an awfully happy life."

Sherry's changing the market with her dad's blessing. Still, she's doing some things he probably wouldn't, like the Obama Coffee samples that shocked Mark Hodesh.

"Obama Coffee?" Ray asks. "Is that right? I'm a Republican-but if it's over there, I'm for it."

Sherry's even thinking about putting up a sign-something her Dad didn't see any need for. "I've always believed in quality, and word of mouth-it's worked very well," Ray says. But he adds, "If Sherry wants to put up a sign, it's fine with me."
