TOPIC:  Paperboy…

Posted:  9/4/2019, 4:05 a.m. EDT


So, dad tells me that back in the day he was a paperboy for the masses.  He said he was a stellar employee of the Tribune and of course made "Paperboy of the Year".  Later after making a small fortune and learning to drive, he got a motor route out in the country where hundreds of copies of the news fit to print were disseminated.  Dad said that sometimes his peeps would ride along, and they'd play newspaper delivery games, like rural paper tube box delivery at excessive speeds while listening to Deep Purple "Machine Head".  Good times.  I thought for a while they were going to turn news carriers into mind-numb robots, but instead they've decided to use the Post Office (until they turn those folks into robots of course).
