Art Mason of Wayzata retired from his job 30 years ago.
“It was good – for three months,” Art tells KARE 11’s Boyd Huppert. “Then I was bored to death.”
So, 29 years ago, a McDonald’s manager asked him if he’d help out for a few hours; he was short staffed.
In May, Art will turn 89.
He’s also going to retire again.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
