McDonald's and Minks

This is what I love! the window exclaims. An evening at the Golden Globes calls for hauling out your full-length mink coat. But would you wear it for lunch at the Golden Arches? Come to Russia and here McDonald’s and mink go together like. . . like a Beeg Mak and village-style fries.

When Russian winter temps dip below freezing, fur coats get pulled from the closet. They’re everywhere and they’re breathtaking – beaver, mink, ermine and rabbit. So of course furs are seen at McDonald’s too because going to the Golden Arches is a special treat.

Although this wasn’t taken at McDonald’s, the nice lady above happily modeled her full-length fur at the supermarket. Hmmm. . . .bet she’s bought a Happy Meal or two for her grandkids.

Well, Thank you *John from Kansas!* And...thank you for stopping by. Today, Monday the 14th is the *Old New Year* on the Russian calendar, so guess we have a second chance at New Year's resolutions. ;) E
