« Happy Birthday Little John | Main | The Poor and Needy »



My Mom bought a Kirby. It made my arm ache too.

I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping. I don't know how I ever lived without Amazon.com before. Much less, Amazon Prime.

I hate going out to stores. I don't want to be physically corralled and certainly don't like to have my money corralled by what is in stock and available at that moment in that store on that aisle.

Traveling salesmen. It was a different world.


Memories! We had an Electrolux (vacuum) salesman that lived locally and would deliver bags when needed. I still have a "Fuller" broom, bought from a traveling salesman over 40 years ago. When my children were small, it was wonderful to have both a milkman and bread man. Remembering the 1940's, there was the iceman with his big blocks of ice and a fishmonger who would bring fresh fish to the neighborhood once a week.


The milk man was wonderful!
