Tuesday Chatter Weekly – September 5, 2016


Presenting Tuesday Chatter Cafe!

Hi, everyone! For those of you that live in the U.S. and Canada, here’s wishing you a happy and safe Labor Day.  Let’s reflect on Labor Day and recognize our workforce for all that they do.

The significance of Labor Day 2016

“Labor Day 2016, also known as Labour Day, is a federal holiday observed annually on the first Monday of September. Originally it was a day organized to celebrate various labor associations’ strengths and their contributions to the United States economy and presently it is a day that gives workers a day of rest and celebrates their contribution to the American economy. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day 2016 Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer.”

And here’s a little extra about professions of “back then”. Remember the days of deliveries in the 1960s? They were much different than what we experience today. Milk used to be delivered to our door. We would leave our empty glass bottles on the porch with a note letting the milkman know what was needed. Some milkmen wore all white and rode bicycles or drove these cute little trucks. The fresh milk would be on our doorstep at 4 am. Can you imagine this happening today?


There was also the bread man with a combination of fresh bread and tempting sweets. Wow, with the delivery of milk and bread, it was like breakfast on wheels. Was there an egg man – does anyone know?

And, let’s not forget the paper boy that delivered the newspaper. Back then, paper boys were mostly young lads in school making some extra change. We still have newspaper deliveries today, but on a different scale and quickly being replaced by technology.

imagesOf course the popular trend today is pizza delivery and what a brilliant idea!  Oh, and hats off to Amazon for delivering anything and everything under the sun.

  1. Lovely memories of delivery folks shared here. We had milk, baked goods, eggs, ice cream, soda bottles, cases of beer, cans of pretzels and chips all delivered on a regular basis. My folks left an envelope with cash to pay for the items. Lots of trust there. It was a different time. 💘

  2. I remember the milkman and bread man. We also had chips and pretzels delivered. There is a grocery store and a couple of drug stores here that will deliver. It’s very convenient for the older folks that live in my building. I hope they will still be delivering when I am really really old and need the service.

    • We have drug stores that deliver and also online drug stores that will ship the products. It is very convenient for those that have difficulty getting around.
