Saturday Delivery

This story, Saturday Delivery, has nothing to do with me, other than it began six days after I was born.

But…it conjures up memories of my uncle, who ran a bagel bakery, having a bag of still-warm bagels delivered to our front porch each morning…and those were “real” bagels…not the ersatz bagels we have to contend with in the South. To be fair, New York BBQ cannot touch what we have here, but bagels?, fuhgeddaboudit!.

I also can still see in my memory, the tell-tale mark of water drips on our driveway…letting us know that the truck from Wagner’s Dairy had pulled in our driveway to deliver two, half gallon bottles of milk…with the cream on the top.

Memorial Day, 1976, Warren Police Headquarters, before the parade.  From left:  Ken Reagan, Dad, Carl Seneca and the late, Father Jim Russell.  This picture is one of my most precious possessions.  Ken referred to these as the "Camelot Years"...a bottle of Wagner's Milk on the table.

Memories of a time that seems so much simpler than today. We had less, enjoyed more and trusted others unceasingly.

Ah, I miss those days.

    There are bagels…and there’s bread with a hole in it. I’m with you Ray – no sense in trying to compete with the original… 🙂
