Scissor Sharpening

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?

  1. Yes, we still have the knife sharpener come around our neighbourhood in the summer. Yes, the bell clanging alerts us to his arrival. However, the husband won't let me have any utensils sharpened! He claims they do a terrible job, so he does the sharpening instead.
