About

Milk, eggs, bread and a little lunch meat and I can barely carry any more from the bus to my front door! And, that is without the bag ripping open on the steps of the bus! No, this is not a comedy routine, this is me shopping and taking the goodies home on the bus. You really can't carry much and it is exhausting. Would you help. All I need is one trip every two weeks and a little companionship when the timing is right.
