CASHIER DONATES KIDNEY TO WIFE OF REGULAR CUSTOMER
Grocery store clerk Leilani Aguirre of Pascagoula, Mississippi, has made friends with many of the customers who visit her store.
One of these customers -- Eddie Drummond -- stops at the store every morning for breakfast before he heads off to work.
One morning, Leilani noticed a change in Eddie, and asked what was wrong. She learned that Eddie’s wife of 32 years -- Donnie -- was having kidney trouble and would need a transplant as soon as possible.
Leilani agreed to get tested to see if she was a match. Sure enough -- Leilani and Donnie were perfect matches -- and Leilani went forward with the donation.
Donnie described the kind act as a “miracle blessing,” but Leilani downplayed it, explaining that she donated the kidney because if the situation were reversed, she'd want someone to do the same for her. (WSVN-TV)
GAS SHORTAGE IN MEXICO CREATING A GUACAMOLE CRISIS
We might be dealing with a big problem -- because a gas shortage in Mexico is messing with our supply of avocados.
The fuel shortage in Mexico has left many truck drivers along the side of the road without gas. That means tons of avocados are left stranded south of the border.
The timing, of course, couldn’t be worse because Super Bowl Sunday is just a few short weeks away. Super Bowl parties without guacamole is a real possibility. (Reuters)
