I was inspired to write this post by reading another blog entitled “Where Did the Delivery Man Go?” You can read it here.
My grandfather was a milkman. He never had a driver’s licence, however. He delivered the milk by horse and cart. I remember as a child seeing him go clippity clop past my grandparents’ house when I visited. I’m not that old and believe me it was a shock to me. I lived on a busy street in a world class city (Toronto) at the time.
I had never even seen a horse except one time at a city park when a “mounted policeman” was there for a function. I live in Canada and seeing an RCMP officer is not a daily occurrence as some might believe. Most RCMP officers work in offices or precincts, just as FBI officers do. We don’t live in igloos here either.
I do remember having milk, and mail delivery, however. These things have gone by the wayside now so maybe I am old!
Do you remember home delivery?
