You Never Know Whoo Might Turnip!

Amanda was inspired by our homepage  video today  to write to us about grocery shopping . . . No mundane moments!  Keep your eyes open out there folks, because you never know who's going to turn up at the grocery store -- everybody needs to eat! Even owls. (Though I don't go to the grocery store, I mean really, I'm an owl.)

Grocery shopping, it’s usually just another task needing to be crossed off one of my many to-do lists. Do you enjoy grocery shopping? I think it can be fun, a challenge, or simply annoying. But what happened on a day many years ago, when a shop turned into a celebrity sighting? Keep reading...

Not sure if we were sent out for a specific forgotten item, or were doing a normal shop, but my Dad and I had just pulled into the local shopping center that held our town’s Whole Foods, a Starbucks, a general store, and a Chinese restaurant. As soon as he parked the car though, he motioned to me and said, “Look!”

At first, not recognizing the man who looked about my dad’s age with a baseball cap on, I felt confused at his excitement.  But as we got a full look at his face, I realized who it was: Ron Howard! Knowing that many celebrities choose to live in our suburban town with only a short commute from Manhattan, I shouldn’t have been surprised, yet I felt star struck.

I mean, how cool is that? We just saw a famous actor/director on our way to pick up a few groceries. Normally, my dad and I are power-shoppers, a.k.a. divide and conquer to grab those items and get out. Maybe it was our celebrity sighting, but our trip to the store seemed to go at super speed as we collected our items that afternoon.

You never know who’s going to turn up when picking up some more eggs, milk, or apples. All I know is that power grocery shopping hasn’t been the same since our afternoon with Ron Howard!

p.s. Shortly after our lucky sighting, a friend told me she ran into Paul Simon in her grocery story in a neighboring town!  See what I mean?

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
