Yesterday while at Walmart, as I mentioned yesterday Vince had gone out to the garden center and I had walked over to the canning area. There was a man coming down the canning row and I was kinda in the middle of the row with my cart so I apologized. I was looking at lids and then I grabbed a 12 pack of quart jars because I had some canning to do yesterday afternoon. I knew I had one package of quarts but thought I might need more. (I didn’t because I ended up using pints). I don’t know how we struck up a conversation but he said he was looking for half gallon jars. I had just stopped and looked at them on an end cap so I told him where they were. He said “I deliver milk in the half gallon jars!” About that time Vince walked up and I was asking the man about milk. He said he has a dairy and I was confused because I knew he wasn’t the guy from the dairy where we usually buy milk.
Come to find out, he delivers milk once a week to our area. I was excited because it’s a bit far to the dairy we’ve been using – not FAR as in next county but probably 20 or more miles one way from our house. We usually get two gallons when we go and then we run out and have to use storebought milk til we get back over there. So, if this guy brings us milk once a week, that will work great.
I’m going try to make goodies . . muffins or bars . . things like that to give to him. He said he and his son deliver the milk and they will be by about 6 a.m. on delivery day. I’ll make the treats the night before. 🙂
I hope he does it. I’ve already texted him and asked him to leave us a gallon on the next delivery day. How cool is that to have a milk man again!
