Every once in a while I get the opportunity to meet someone who is really interesting and is changing his community just by being himself. My Willie, who works at the Wal-Mart in Maumelle, Ar. (ok, as several readers have informed us, it is technically in North Little Rock, not in Maumelle, but every calls it the Maumelle Wal-Mart so I'm sticking with that) 

The back story to this assignment is the Mr. Willie is famous for greeting people with a BAM! when they enter the store (Think Emeril). And by famous, I mean there's a Facebook page with 5,000+ that has nothing to do with Wal-Mart.

Mr. Willie was just finishing up the interview with the reporter when I got to the store, so I go to meet him in the back. I told him to just do his thing and I'd take some pictures while he was greeting customers. After a few stops to  talk with customers and a few BAMs, we made it to the front. The checkout lane closest to us had the dreaded blinking light and a frustrated mother waiting for some help. Then her 2 year old saw Mr. Willie. "It's Mr. Willie!" The mother assured the kid that he'd get a bam, but he was still restless.  Children came out of the woodworks to bump fists with Mr. Willie. It was really awesome watching an enthusiastic greeter was really able to brighten people's day by giving it all at work.

Ugh. Lion has managed to remove all the features I found useful about OSX. I guess it is time to learn how to use my computer in an entirely different way. #Iwasafraidofthis

My #1 question about plus is how long am I going to be able to keep my parents from friending me on it?

Uh-oh, I'm doing facebook all over again and just adding everyone to my friends circle.

Finally got around to setting up google+ and accidentally typed into the url bar. 3rd times the charm, right?
