The Blair Bakery is usually busy on Saturday morning, but nothing like November 23, when cars began arriving before 4:30 and customers lining the sidewalks waiting for Connie Custard to open up so they could buy out the donuts and cookies to allow Connie to spend time with her husband Jim.
Jim, a Marine veteran has faced numerous health issues and is in need of constant care. Many who waited in line and crowded overpaid, asked for no change, or just filled the tip jar.
“This is a good community. I love Blair, Connie told Enterprise Media managing editor Leeanna Ellis, “I’ve been here all my life and it’s one of the best. It doesn’t matter, when somebody needs it, they’re out to help.”
