Fast forward to this year and rewind just a couple of days ago as Grimace once again visited our McDonalds and this time he brought a couple of his pals. I almost missed their arrival, but thanks to my friend Tim for his enthusiastic phone call letting us know that the
The first lady and I hopped in our jalopy and we zoomed to McDonalds!
First we said hi to Grimace. “Hi Grimace!”
Since we didn’t have any hamburgers on us, it was safe to greet Hamburgler. “Hi Hamburgler!”
Next we visited with Birdie the Early Bird. “Hi Birdie!”
We also visited with the mascot handler and he said that the Grimace and Birdie costumes were vintage. Since I never met any of the McDonaldland mascots as a kid, hearing that the costumes were vintage really made it that much more cooler!
Oh yeah, there was one more mascot that tagged along, but he wasn’t part of McDonaldland.
Don’t tell the Tyson Chicken, but really we were kind of scared of him.
