Tuesday Chatter 43

I find there is nothing more pleasing than useful and useless chatter while sipping on a  cup of coffee so strong it’s as clear as mud. This is one of those chats.

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.

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.”

I like writing ever since I was Twelve and I want to be a successful writer. There isn’t much to say about me. I am just… me 😉

Many Moons Ago

Remember the days of deliveries back 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 we needed. Some milkmen wore all white and rode bicycles or drove 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 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, not to forget the paper boys that delivered the newspaper. Back then, they were mostly young lads in school making some extra change. We still have newspaper deliveries today, but on a different scale and sadly being replaced by technology.images

Of course today, we have pizza delivered, a brilliant idea!  Oh, and hats off to Amazon for delivering anything and everything under the sun.

By the way, Sally Sue is taking a break this week so I won’t be reporting on any escapades from our cruising gadabout. To be continued…

As the Honey Drizzles

My fav social media friend, beBee, is keeping me busy as a bee. Now that I am a beBee Brand Ambassador, I’m busier than ever, but it’s a good kind of busy – know what I mean? I’m part of something that is growing leaps and bounds and it is most satisfying to be involved in the start-up of a phenomenon. Come visit and enjoy some very talented authors and feel the excitement at beBee

Autumn

A tree leafed in green

Except for one golden gem

A sign of Autumn

A warm summer breeze

Warms the earth in its last breath

A sign of Autumn

Bright sunny colors

Transitioning to burnt umber

A sign of Autumn

Fragrance of apples

Pumpkins smiling with delight

A sign of Autumn

Memories so dear

Cherishing moments of cheer

A sign of Autumn

  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. 💘

  6. 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.

  7. Ha,ha! Thanks for the chuckle from that image of the mailman and the dog. It’s so sad at times how beautiful past has been replaced by the fast paced technological life of nowadays.
