No Women In Silk Negligees…Plus…Keeping The Risebroughs In Calcium And Vitamin D

I was a door-to-door milkman in Calgary for a short while, and I’d like to dispel a myth about milkmen.

 

Not once did a beautiful woman in suburbia meet me at the door in a silk negligee. Not once was I ever invited in for coffee by some buxomy seductress.

 

The closest I came was when a lady answered the door in her bathrobe and a mouth full of toothpaste.

 

And because this is a Habs site, I have no problem connecting this story to the Habs. Because one of my milk customers was Doug Risebrough, ex-feisty seventies and early-eighties Hab, and during the time he and his wife and kids were drinking my milk, was GM for the Calgary Flames.

 

Risebrough was never there when I delivered his milk, but his wife was. And they left me a tip at Christmas.

 

They lived in a nice house in suburbia in northwest Calgary, with a view of downtown and the Olympic ski jump, in case you’re interested.

  1. That reminds me of when I was Brian Skrudland’s paper boy. I tried to go when Brian was home because he was a generous tipper. Also for the obvious reasons any Habs fan would…

    Defensive forwards from the Habs – so accessible to us lowly fans.
