There was a tin milk carton sitting on the back stoop of our home. The milkman drove down the street and delivered glass quart bottles of fresh milk and butter and sometimes eggs. He picked up the empties my mom left in the box, clean and ready for a trade. The filled bottles had a cardboard top. My sisters and I grabbed for the tops when the milk bottle was finished. We spun them. When I think of it, milkman delivery was a good deal. Mom got essential groceries, and the kids got a cheap toy.
My theme for the 2022 AtoZ Blog Challenge is titled Grand Prompts To Ask Your Grands. Each day in April I will present a conversation starter/journal prompt to ask your parents, grandparents, aunts, older neighbors, co-workers, yourself…you get the idea. The questions are meant to forge connections between and within generations and inspire storytelling and journaling.
