Kymberlie just IM’d me and told me that Wendy’s Founder Dave Thomas Dies. “Dave Thomas, the portly pitchman whose homespun ads built Wendy’s Old-Fashioned Hamburgers into one of the world’s most successful fast-food enterprises, died Tuesday of liver cancer. He was 69.” Wow. Ok, I don’t know why I have chills, but I honestly do. I guess if you think about it, Dave Thomas has been around most of my life promoting Wendy’s. I’m a child of the 80’s. Where’s the Beef? You know all of that. I think it was his down to earth nature that made him so special. The fact that he was an adoption advocate … well, it seemed to me that he had a good heart. I will miss him, seeing him on the commercials – I guess you don’t realize what a part of your life things like that are, no matter how small, until they are gone.
