Just Missed Him!

Ahhh! I just missed the knife grinder! I heard the bell going down my street, and saw the red truck cruise by the window, but by the time I got my coat and grabbed Grammy’s Henkels he was already off the block (and then I was just walking down the street in my house-slippers holding a bunch of knives like an old crazy lady). I have my own knife sharpener, sure, but- just like the ever dwindling seltzer guys- there’s something wonderful and classic about the traveling grinder. Maybe he’ll come back down, I’m ready…
