            Many of us who grew up in those days as an adult would stop and buy lemonade just to support the child's effort.  To be honest, sometimes I bought it, then poured it out when they were not looking because they put so much sugar in it I couldn't get it down.  We were glad, though, to see them out there trying on their own to do something like this.
