I Want to Place an Order

While in the Lawrenceville McDonalds today for a quick lunch, I saw a young man in his dress military uniform come into the long line to place an order. 

When the woman directly in front of him reached the counter, she turned to him and said, "What would you like for lunch? I'm getting yours today." 

The young man said, "Oh, no, no...that's all right." The woman insisted, "No sir, I'm buying your lunch today! It's the very least I can do to thank you for your service to this country."
 

The young man politely thanked her, got his lunch, and sat down. I had finished my food by this time and was just throwing trash away when the woman walked by me with her order.  I reached out and gently put my hand on her arm and told her, "Ma'am, that has to be the most wonderful thing I have ever seen! I'm privileged to have witnessed it." 

She said, "Well, there's a story behind what I did. My fiance was killed in Vietnam. I miss him every day. Several years later, I married his best friend and Army buddy. We have had such wonderful life! We both miss my fiance every day. I do this in his memory. I can't do much for our soldiers who are overseas, but I can do this small thing for those who are still stationed in this country.

I told her, "What a special lady you are; have
a wonderful afternoon!" I literally left McDonald's with tears streaming down my face.  I don't know who that kind woman was, but she made my day!

Find a Four Leaf Clover

 
According to tradition finding a four
leaf clover brings good luck, especially if
found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first
is for faith, the second is for hope, the
third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.

Ag in the Classroom

                                                   Photo compliments of The Lawrenceville Daily Record

From left, Wyatt Rinsch (Thing 1), Dalton Vories (The Cat in the Hat) and Blake Rinsch (Thing 2) were a part of "Green Eggs and Ag" recently at Central Christian Church in Lawrenceville.
Second graders from throughout the county attended the program, which was a part of
the Lawrence County Ag in the Classroom program.


The Lawrence County Ag in the Classroom program ties the two together annually with "Green Eggs and Ag." This year's event was held Friday March 7th at Central Christian Church.


"It's kind of a celebration of agriculture through Dr. Seuss," said Kris Hasewinkle, the Lawrence County Ag in the Classroom Coordinator.  "We take some of his books and put a twist on them. They've been talking about Dr. Seuss at school and today they'll come in and learn a little bit about agriculture."

It Happens


As I was working with a duo of youngsters recently, one little boy was paying particular attention to me.  "Hey, what's that in your hair?" I replied, "Oh, I have a little bit of gray hair." 

Quizzically the youngster wanted to discuss the situation.  "How's come 'ya got those gray hairs?" 

"I'm just getting older," I told him, smiling at his questions.  Upon hearing this, the first student leaned over and whispered to the other, "You know, that must happen to a lot of ladies!"
