It’s Monday! You can now tell people you saw a Thing with milk in it and when they ask you “What are you talking about? A glass?” you can chuckle and say, oh no, no, not a glass until they get reminded about why they never bother talking to you in the first place.

DISCUSSION

I’ve been watching an old British comedy called “Open all Hours”. One thing I am trying to figure out is the Milk Delivery vehicle. Grantville is obsessed with the milk maid that drives it, but I am obsessed with what the vehicle is. Sound’s electric.  Did they have electric delivery vehicles back in the 70s/early 80s when this show was made?
