Wordless Wednesday and Milkman the rest of the story


 I spy a white breasted nuthatch!!


Also wake the town and tell all the people



This was going to be wordless until yesterday when everyone asked why mom was chasing the milkman...when she was a child.  This was way back in the dark ages when milk was delivered to your home.  The milkman left it in a special cooler on the porch.  You were supposed to leave your empty glass bottles by the cooler. Mom spent the night with her gma..
the next morning gma remembered she forgot to put the two empties on the porch.  The milkman just a few houses down...gma told Mom to take the to the milkman BUT
DO NOT RUN.
MOM RAN!!

  1. Oh, that makes sense! We couldn't figure out how your mom could get such a nasty scar! I bet the milkman told that story over and over.

  4. Howdy Madi, our mum too remembers when the milkman came to each house, although he left the milk in bottles. Our angel Poppa helped the milkman when he was 12 and would get up at 4.00 am, do the milk run with the milkman and then go to school. Mum says thanks for the memories :-)

  9. oh wow, running with glass milk bottles... makes more sense now... It is really really hard to believe that your MOM was ever disobedient... MOL MOL... my hubby had milk delivered to, but we never did... i remember the bottles but no milk man. i don't think they did that in the south.. now i am wondering. you look so cute birdwatching.

  10. I guessed it ... "do not run" is the start signal for nearly all kids to run like the wind... probably that kids have to wait till ears will grow on them :o) I remember the milkman, once we found a grasshopper in our bottle... it was still alive as we opened the milk bottle.... we never solved that miracle lol

  11. okay, I'm glad she wasn't trying to tackle him to take milk away from him...hehehehe

    Putter Jean would. That cat can smell milk the second I walk into a room with a glass. It's on then. I have to go back to the kitchen and give her a little in a bowl so I can drink mine.

  12. My dad made a special container for the milk bottles so that when they were delivered the birds would not peck into the silver tops and siphon off all the cream...
    How things change.
    Cheers,

  13. Haha, well Madi there you go. Whenever your mom tells you not to do something and you do it anyway, you can hold this over her head!

  14. OKAY that explains it... We all know that little peeps... ALWAYS run... no matter what. Butt is is sad that your mom Fell and was BUSTED in more ways than one.

  15. ...while running I hope the bottles weren't dropped!!
    As for chasing milkmen....I've chase a few now and then...the mail man, the Federal Express dude, the milk man, the ice cream truck dude...well, they're all so worthy of chasing here and there...afterall, they have some goodies [take that as you wish]

  17. Nice Bird TV, Madi!

    Mom too remembers those days of the milkman deliveries and the dream at the top of the bottles. Does your Mom remember coffee cans with the key to open them and the very sharp edge it left on the can? Our MOm has a scar on her nose from when a neigbor boy got tire of being "It" in a game of tag and threw that can at Mom - it clipped her right across the center of her nose:(

  29. Hey Madi!
    Wow, we have nuthatches here too! Silly birdies go down our tree trunks head-first. BOL My peeps call them GrouchBirds because they like to squawk at the others to get the most seeds for themselves.
