More "Oldest Living Blogger".... Milk Bottles...


I've probably mentioned this before, but our last-remaining locally-owned dairy is 110 years old this year, and now located in modern facilities in Burnaby. They used to be "right downtown" on their original farm, at 44th Avenue and Wales Road, Vancouver. And their milk is still in those famous glass bottles. They say they have to buy extra ones, because customers tend to want to collect them. There's a one-dollar deposit on them, so for a buck, you can have a keepsake. I like to take them back, and get my buck, and then look around the store for some little kid eyeing the candy shelf, and say "Hold out your hand." For those who do, they get a buck to spend foolishly. That's no big deal these days, but it once was.
