Good News: Thrift Stores, Tea Parties, and Long-Lost Siblings

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A guy in Colorado accidentally donated a whole suitcase of family memories to a thrift store, like old photos and letters.  But someone at the store realized no one would just throw that stuff out.  So they tracked him down and got it back to him.

2.  McDonald’s had to shut down over 100 locations in Ukraine because of the whole Russia mess, but they decided to keep paying the employees.  They’re doing the same for employees in Russia for now too.  850 locations there recently had to close.

3.  A 52-year-old guy named Bob Barnes has been in the news, because he’s riding his bike to all 50 U.S. state capitals.  And check this out:  After the trip started, he found out he had a half-sister in Louisiana named Rose.  So last month, he stopped to meet her for the first time, and posted photos of it on Facebook.

4.  Here’s a weird record to hold:  A guy from Seattle named Andrew Hughes was just recognized by Guinness for hosting the “world’s highest tea party” on Mount Everest.
