I heard that familiar “clanging” in the neighbourhood today and got so excited! The knife sharpener! I flagged him down. When he pulled up, I asked him if he was the ice cream truck. He said, no, it’s too cold for ice cream! I asked him if he would sharpen my scissors. He said he would. I got three pairs of scissors sharpened! I like the old-fashioned charm of a knife sharpener. We still also get the ice cream truck coming through our ’hood. Pretty cool, really. Do they still have knife sharpeners coming around your neighbourhood?
