    My favorite memory when my son & I had breakfast before school. It was a special treat!

  • morrisronald96 Oct 28, 2016

    My best memory of McDonald's was watching the fish in the tank our local McDonald's had. I miss it now that they no longer have it.

    My memory of McDonald's is my Dad taking me to eat "pink sandwiches" when I was about 2 years old. That's what I called biscuits with jelly!

  • helloangel93 Oct 28, 2016

    My favorite McDonald'smemory is watching my 2 year old son chow down on McDonald's french fries. He loves them!

    What I loved best about McDonalds was buying supper for a change instead of cooking after a long day at work. At 86 yrs old I still like to get a sausage biscuit for breakfast or chicken nuggets for lunch. Never too old for McDonald's!
