Maybe it's the cheap labor, or maybe it's the nasty traffic in the city, but we've discovered that there's a special delivery day for all sorts of things.
Thursdays is the water bottle delivery guy (the large, 5 gallon "pure water"). Sometimes he comes on Tuesday (not sure if that's instead of or in addition to the Thursdays). Or, if you really need some water, he leaves his cell phone number, and you can call him direct.
Fridays a cardboard reclycling truck drives up and down the street in the morning. Not sure what that's all about.
Saturday seems to be the propane tank replacement day (propane is used for the stove and the water heater). There are scores of what I assume to be independent operators driving up and down the street.
Dan turned us on to his friend's coffee company - they deliver, by the pound, whenever you want.
Looking forward to learning what's on the menu for the rest of the week.
