RONALD MCDONALD IS COMING TO MURPHY!!!  I was driving through town Locationyesterday and saw the notice posted on a sign in front of our local McDonalds in Murphy, North Carolina.  

 

 

 

 

 

Seeing that sign took me back a long time (don’t bother asking how long) to when I was seven years old and my wonderful Grandmother entered me into a contest that was being held by our local McDonalds in Tampa, Florida.   I remember that location so well, it wasn’t too far from our hoBustuse and there was no inside seating.  You just walked up to the window, ordered your yummy goodness and either ate at concrete tables outside or took it to go in the car.  

 

 

But, I digress.....  The contest was to find the King and Queen of “McDonald Land” who would ride on the McDonalds float in the Gasparilla Parade.  Imagine my shock and surprise the day they called and informed ME that I had been chosen the QUEEN of McDonald Land!!!  I can still recall the pictures that my Grandmother took when I answered the phone and heard the news!Arches!  I still have the little blue wool blazer with the golden arches logo on the pocket.

 

 

 

Many years, many hamburgers and a whole bunch of golden fries later I still have a soft spot in my heart for the Golden Arches.  So if you’re a Parent or a Grandparent, load the kids up this Saturday March 19th and take them to see Ronald McDonald at

the McDonalds in Murphy.  

 

 

 

Tell them the Queen sent you!
