Jack Ball in Europe!
« on: June 03, 2007, 04:38:56 PM »
We visited some friends of Fiance's in Leoben over last weekend.  The woman had been to the States several times, and had lived there for a year.  When we mentioned we had just gotten a new car, she jumped up from the table and ran to get something.  She came back and presented a little gift to me, with the explanation that their car no long has the right kind of antenna for it:

A Jack Ball!  From Jack-in-the-Box, you know?  A little piece of home, so far away.  It is the most wonderful present I've gotten in a long time, and from someone I barely know.

Aww!

Reminders from home are the pest, esp. when they are unexpected

I recall seeing a '76' ball from out west and sending one to my Mom in the northeast. Was such an nice bit of nostelgia for her!
