Those good ol days when the milkman would deliver fresh milk right at your doorstep, daily.   Until the time my parents were kids they enjoyed these privileges.  Our grandpas and grandmas were so fortunate.    The generation which you kiddos enter is an era when these old professions that helped provide sustainable livelihood to so many poor folks are no more.  

No milk in the fridge?   Dad or mom have to walk or drive to the nearest convenience store to buy it.  Sad eh?   But at least let yourself know that these good ol days did exist once upon a time with much happiness and peace.

Absolutely adorable!   and just so true.   

This period actually existed until two of my eldest siblings were in primary school.  They still recall the 'days of the milkman' when he knocked at the kitchen door late afternoon everyday.  He would soon be given a clean cooking pot in which to pour the milk, and mom or dad would then boil the pure fresh milk to a full boil .... and cool  Smiley   The milkman they remember came on a bicycle.  The ones my parents and grandparents recall brought the milk in a couple of canisters laden on a cute, sleepy little donkey, exactly as in this lovely pic.

Indeed, days worth remembering.

Reminiscing a beautiful past is one of the most soothing forms of recreation by itself.
