Niagara Gazette — No, it is NOT chiseled in stone.
HAPPY RETURNS: On the other hand, Doug shuffled off last Thursday with three grocery bags full of old Gazettes and Tonawanda Newses, plus a half-bale of catalogues, to drop in one of those yellow-and-gold recycling dumpsters.
He did not relish the task, having damaged a shoulder during recreational pursuits (you never heard of full-contact golf?) He figured he could somehow or other rappel them up to the slot with his surviving shoulder and somehow shove them in.
Somebody up there liked him, evidently, for as he opened the door, up drove two young men with what looked like a carload of textbooks. He begged their assistance.
Say what you will about today’s younger generation, they not only did the job, they reacted as if they’d been honored to be asked. Civility is alive and well. Thanks, guys, we needed that.
Come visit. Drop something off.
