Dear Byrne Dairy,
Somehow this cold weather is making me think about a summer afternoon in 1989. I was driving back from Byrne Dairy in the car my grandparents had recently handed down to me. You could barely tell if they had ever even let their feet touch the carpeting. I turned a corner and the red plastic tote containing the two glass bottles of milk my friend and I had just bought fell over. The two half gallons crashed together spilling milk all over the rug. Oh dear. No wet-vac or cleaning supplies at our disposal were going to erase that event.
I drove many miles the rest of that summer in a very smelly, sun-baked milk mobile. Never once did that negatively impact my feelings for Byrne Dairy skim milk in a glass bottle. So cold, so delicious. From then on though, I did nestle each bottle separately, a safe distance apart from each other.
Now that I have a husband and teenage children of my own, there are more opinions about milk to consider. Byrne Dairy is still a favorite. My husband has taken to treating his semi-lactose intolerant (more like lactose disagreeable) self to a bottle of Byrne Dairy low fat milk after his exercise regiments. He says that in addition to the delicious taste, yours is the only brand that does not give him terrible gas. We are all grateful!

Did they respond? Well I sent that letter last winter, so I guess it is time to give up hope. However, I not cry over spilt milk!
