Merry Christmas, Officer K!

We absolutely love the police officers at Findlay Market. 2 or 3 of the officers have regular duty on foot patrol around the market. Others seem to come and go around the neighborhood--either on foot, bicycle, or by squad car. Some just smile and say hello as they pass. Others stop for fresh produce as they finish a shift.
Officer K made quite an impression on us the first time we met. We had a special price on boxes of bananas that caught his eye. After deliberating a couple minutes, he bought several boxes...more than any household could need. He thanked us, turned and walked across the street with the the local soup kitchen.
This week Officer K came back to buy a couple items for himself. After making his purchases, he turned and hurried away as Barry shouted, "Merry Christmas." Officer K immediately came back and shook Barry's hand...a small gesture, a simple if to say, "You've made my day better."
To Officer K and the other Cincinnati police officers, thanks for all you do...And have a Merry Christmas!
