I met Ronald McDonald last night after the Christmas Parade.

Yes, I know… Ronald McDonald?

He was there in all his glory and you know what? He was an awesome guy. 

Jim and I watched his interaction with people and he was very sociable and kind. Yes, I know, part of the job, but he genuinely was nice and a joy to talk to.When talking to the two of us, he was articulate and funny.

We got to see the reaction from kids and it really tickled us. They knew him from the television, had big smiles for him, and it reminded me of Art Linkletter’s” Kids say the darnedest things.” He had worked some magic tricks for them and they were intrigued.

Granted, I never expected to meet him, but a nicer ambassador for the company McDonalds’ never had.
