    Paul Newman

    Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this.... True story.

    A Michigan woman and her family
    were vacationing in a
    small New England town where
    Paul Newman and his family often visited.

    One Sunday morning, the woman
    got up early to take a long walk.
    After a brisk five-mile hike,
    she decided to treat herself to
    a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

    She hopped in the car,
    drove to the center of the village
    and went straight to the
    combination bakery/ice cream parlor.

    There was only one other patron
    in the store:
    Paul Newman,
    sitting at the counter
    having a doughnut and coffee.

    The woman's heart skipped a beat
    as her eyes made contact
    with those famous baby-blue eyes.

    The actor nodded graciously
    and the star struck woman smiled demurely.

    Pull yourself together!
    She chides herself.
    You're a happily married woman
    with three children,
    you're forty-five years old,
    not a teenager!

    The clerk filled her order
    and she took the double-dip
    chocolate ice cream cone in one hand
    and her change in the other.
    Then she went out the door,
    avoiding even a glance
    in Paul Newman's direction.

    When she reached her car,
    she realized that she had a
    handful of change
    but her other hand was empty.
    Where's my ice cream cone?
    Did I leave it in the store?
    Back into the shop she went,
    expecting to see the cone still
    in the clerk's hand
    or in a holder on the counter
    or something!
    No ice cream cone was in sight..

    With that, she happened to look
    over at Paul Newman.
    His face broke into his familiar,
    warm, friendly grin and he said to the woman,

    'You put it in your purse.'
