Love Your Letter Carrier

Well, at least be extra nice to them today! It’s time for my annual post on the amazing job the United States Postal Service does. Today is expected to be the busiest mail day of the year - maybe a gazillion pieces, give or take a gabillion! I’m afraid we contributed to the crush with a couple of last minute cards and a few special packages, all processed through our local post office.

I remain amazed that six days out of seven; cards, letters, packages (and unfortunately bills and third class mail too!) are delivered to our home. It wasn’t all that long ago that a note from a relative living far away, was a cause for celebration. In this age of e-mail, cell phones and well, blogs, a card or letter sent through the mail can still bring a smile to the recipients face. So grab a pen, put it to paper, stamp and post it. But you might want to wait until tomorrow!

I used to be an avid letter writer.. I think that may be my new years resolution...start writing again.

If I don't speak to you before the big day, here's hoping you and your man have a wonderful time, and that the world is good and kind to you

Oh hark the 'thunk' as a postie flings my packages from the road to my door!
But you're right, stinking hot, or pouring rain, all cards, parcles & bills have arrived safely so far!

Hi Roo -
I wrote letters all through college. Since then, mostly cards, except for a few important letters.
Good luck with any and all resolutiions!

Thank you so much for the good wishes! We send all our best back to you and Peter for Christmas and the New Year!

Hi DMM -
Flinging packages?!?!?! Say it ain't so!
I fear we're spoiled around here. If a package won't fit in our mailbox, our letter carrier drives up our driveway and beeps her horn!
