You wouldn't think that in this small town, you'd run into more than one or two people who had someone from their family in Iraq, or had been there. But I have, *many* people.
One woman was looking for things for her grandson Iraq to send him, like sunscreen, and moisturizer. One lady came in and bought twenty-four bags of candy. We asked if she was a teacher, cause they buy a lot of candy sometimes. She said she was sending them to her son in Iraq, candy for the troops and for them to hand out to kids over there. Sorry we blew up your house, here, have a root beer barrel.
