    In 1953 I was a 10th grader at the high school in Trona, CA and the science class took a field trip to the Kaiser steel mill in Fontana, CA. With us on our
    bus were the teacher and the school principal as chaperones. On the way back the bus broke down and a wrecker towed us to a garage for repairs.
    After the bus was repaired we started back hope again but we were all hungry. The only place we found open was a McDonald’s and that was in
    San Bernadino, CA. We stopped and I was first off the bus. I walked to the window and the man inside asked for my order. I ordered burgers and dries
    and when he rang it up on the register a bell sounded and he told me I had to wait a minute. He made a phone call and about five minutes later a car
    sped into the lot; a guy jumped out and entered the building through the back door; went straight to the register and acted like something was wrong.
    It scared me because I hadn’t done anything wrong (that I knew of) and they put my order on the window counter and said that since I was their one
    millionth customer the food for all of us was free. The register receipt had a red star on it and the guy who had driven in took a couple of pictures with
    a Kodak Brownie camera and wished us a safe trip home. We got back to Trona at 4:00 AM and were excused from school that day. I am now 84 years
    old but I remember that trip as if it were yesterday.

    1940!? I never thought they went back that far! Holy cow! Barbeque? Ugh! I actually liked Hardee’s and their special sauce better but having a McGriddle with bacon, egg and cheese is my favorite breakfast treat. In fact I would say it is the only thing I ever order anymore. Wendy’s has the best burgers.
