One of the advantages of living in the city is access to vital businesses, such as a major grocery store, drugstore, dollar store and covenience stores - many of which are within walking distance.
Norman is an inveterate milk drinker. And walker. Often, if not most times, he couples his daily mileaday+ walk with a purpose, e.g., a trip to the grocery store for a few odds-n-ends: apples; something sweet... When he needs milk, he goes to one of three nearby convenience stores: Rite Aide drugstore, a Family Dollar or a 7/11. All are about a mile or so, round trip.
Wednesday, he was out of milk so he went to the drugstore; they were out of gallons of milk!
He decided to go to the dollar store since he also needed some toiletries; the freezer was on the fritz - no milk there!
So, on his way home, he stopped at 7/11. BINGO! And proceeded to come home.
Just as he got to the top of the steps, reached into his pocket to retrieve his keys, the strap on the cloth bag he used to haul his purchases B-R-O-K-E! Out fell the gallon of milk; down the steps and sidewalk cascaded the milk...every drop!
It was to laugh and made even more funny because we had to fill and pour buckets of water down the steps/sidewalk. You see, we have no yard hose. We'd decided to get one of those hoses that is all curled up and stretches out only when water is flowing through...so we'd thrown the old hose away.
Guess we'll get the new hose this weekend.
Enjoy your weekend,
PS.That green strip in the photo (at top of steps) is the broken strap.
