He said, “Yeah, my girlfriend won’t go to the grocery store with me anymore because I could stay for hours.” In fact, Patrick was a frequent visitor. “I think the people that work there know me on a first name basis. I love to ask them what’s new. Why did you guys start to carry this? What is different about it? I like to go to different stores and see how the pricing is different or where they place it. It’s a really weird thing that I just love.”

Arnold has always been proud of his children and it shows in his teachings.
