Our Friend Johann Planting his Vegetable Garden in May
Our Cherry Lane Shopping Center Yesterday
I may have told you this before, but we are so old, things were done very differently in our childhood days, not only because of World War Two. My mother used to shop for groceries on the telephone.( I was allowed to add a few bottles of pop to the weekly order). The groceries were delivered to our door in a van. We didn't have a car. We didn't have plastic bags or shopping trolleys. They weren't invented yet. We grew a lot of our own food in an "allotment." Now look! We don't walk to the shops, we arrive in splendor in a four-wheel drive SUV, polluting the air with our fumes. We use our cars as an extension of our living-rooms, sitting around in parking lots with our feet on the dashboard, sipping coffee, reading a book, and admiring the view, some of us in a no-parking zone (they always have the best scenery), whilst the engine idles to keep us warm, or cool, depending on the month. No, I must admit, I am on the wrong track. The main problem with our World we should be addressing is that there are too many people, and there will be more and more exponentially as time goes on, so we will all starve to death, die of thirst, or of overheating, or freezing cold. Thank goodness we won't live to see it, which is a most selfish thing to say, but it is true.
