Can you imagine what a 104-year-old woman would get arrested for? Not for any reason you’d think! A woman named Anne says she had never been arrested and always wanted to find out what it was like, so she was handcuffed and taken into a police car for the experience. She says the flashing blue lights and siren were “very exciting”!

Experiencing what it’s like to get arrested (without actually being arrested for something) was on Anne’s bucket list, and what better time to experience it than when you’re 104 years old!? It was able to happen by way of a charity event called the Wishing Washing Line initiative.

PC Stephen Harding and his colleague PSCO Kelly Foyle arrived at Anne’s home, performing the arrest and handcuffing her before escorting her to the police vehicle. Word got around that Anne wanted to be fake-arrested when she filled out a form that stunned nursing home staff. She wrote, “My wish is… to be arrested. I am 104 and I have never been on the wrong side of the law.”

“I had a lovely day it was interesting. Nothing like that ever happened to me before. They put the handcuffs on, I had the lot,” Anne explains about her day, “What did it feel like being a criminal? Well it will make me much more careful of what I say and do. But the police were very nice throughout.”

The police team said they were happy to help Anne fulfill her dream of knowing what being arrested was like. PCSO Rob Cole explained how it was walking into the nursing home to handcuff Anne. “It was our first time arresting anyone at a care home. She was surprised to see us, I don’t think she could remember at first that she’d wanted to be arrested.” Anne also struggles with dementia, but it definitely jogged her memory!

Simon Bernstein, chief executive of Alive Activities, talks about the charity event, saying, “Our charity provides lots of creative activities for older people and engage the community in coming into care homes. It can be very boring and quite lonely sometimes – with the best will in the world, some of the care staff don’t have the time to engage people in meaningful activities.”

We can definitely tell that this was for sure an eventful and exciting day for Anne! We’re glad she was able to cross this one off her bucket list.

The newest image is of Tom as Mister Rogers in his famous outfit, as he sings and changes from his dress shoes into his sneakers. If you know the opening tune by heart, you know that he always comes in and changes his shoes, giving one shoe a toss in the air as he sings.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood focuses on Mister Rogers in his later years. The film follows what happens when he is the subject of a magazine article that is written by a cynical reporter. It is based on the famous article by journalist Tom Junod. The movie was filmed in Pittsburgh, where Mister Rogers lived and worked in real life. While the film is partially fictional, it will surely tug at your heartstrings and make you miss Mister Rogers all over again.

Fred Rogers was born on March 20, 1928. It was said that he had a lonely childhood and entertained himself with puppets and dolls, which would later inspire his show. His career started in broadcasting at a public television station. He created a show for kids called Mister Rogers Neighborhood which ran from 1968 to 2001.

Military-Woman Boards Plane, Man Gives Up His First Class Seat For Her

A woman named Jessica Titus recently witnessed a beautiful act of kindness towards our military personnel. A man, who remains anonymous, had been sitting in a first-class seat when he noticed a female army officer heading for a middle seat in coach. He immediately got up from his seat and said, “Sorry, ma’am, I’m in your seat.”

The woman, who also remains anonymous, says that there’s no way he could be sitting in her seat because her ticket says 31B, a middle seat in coach. He walked away, leaving the army officer with a new first-class seat while he took hers in coach. The officer was touched and so was Jessica’s, which prompted her to send the story to the Facebook page of Love What Matters.

"On my flight Tuesday, I walked down the jetway behind a woman in uniform (Army). A man stood up from his 1st class seat…

This is where Jessica comes in. She was so incredibly moved by the man’s beautiful act of kindness that she decided to whip up a little something to keep on paying it forward. She prepared a note for the man now sitting in 31B.

The note said, “Please accept a drink or snack on me. If everyone treated people the way you treated the service-woman, the world would be a better place.” The man respectfully did not accept her money, but he did express just how grateful he was that he was able to inspire someone else to pay it forward.

The post on the Love What Matters Facebook page has since gone viral, garnering almost 40,000 Facebook reactions, almost 300 comments, and just over 3,000 shares. Many people have been sharing their thoughts on the beautiful story, some of them even sharing their own experiences of someone doing this for them.

A woman named Kate Nixon wrote, Someone did this for my husband and I on our flight back to Kansas from California. Forever grateful for people’s appreciation for our service men and women, especially my husband.”

Another Facebook user by the name of Allie Beeston says,Respect is never wasted….lead by example….live by good deeds… love unconditionally and never be afraid to step aside to honor others.” 

One of the top comments says, “It’s not politicians or celebrities who are making America great. It’s people like this man. “Ordinary” people doing extraordinary deeds to help their fellow man. Thank you, Sir. And thank you to the servicewoman he helped.”

How many items from Burger King do you remember getting that are no longer available? From food items to promotional items, to those crowns kids had to have… Burger King was just way better in the ’80s and ’90s! Even the 2000s had some items we wish would return! Do you agree?

1. Cini-Minis

No breakfast at Burger King was complete without those delicious mini cinnamon rolls. They were ooey, gooey and so tiny. They came in a pack of four mini cinnamon rolls and boy were they delicious.

2. Cupcake Shake

The next two items may be from the 2000s, but that doesn’t make us miss them any less! Do you remember this delicious cupcake shake with sprinkles on top? It was so good!

3. Shake ‘Em Up Fries

For a while, Burger King offered a box of french fries with cheesy seasoning. You shook the box to give the fries a new flavor. They were interesting, but they didn’t taste as good as regular fries.

4. Crown-shaped chicken nuggets
