Dave’s Blurb for September
You know what they say, while
the boss is away, the employees will…write his blurb for him.
Nothing too crazy has happened
in the past two weeks while Dave’s been vacationing with his family in
Colorado: the office hasn’t burned down and somehow the coffee still gets made
in the morning.
A couple weeks ago, we posted a
photo on Outlook’s Facebook page—a paparazzi-esque iPhone shot of something you
don’t see everyday—a man riding his horse through the McDonald’s drive-thru at

It was obvious this man had
brought smiles to many Edmond residents over the years. We had to know who he

Judd and his horse Rusty have been riding through that McDonald’s—Judd would
order some lunch and get Rusty some apple slices. Judd loves to ride around
Edmond on one of his horses, posing for photos, and with a parent’s permission,
he’s been known to even give kids rides.
“For some of the kids, it’s the
first time they’ve ever been on a horse,” Judd said. “That’s all you need, to
see kids smile.”
