Stumpy was thrilled!
She inspected each card!
She admired each furends picture
Reminisced about the times back East we spent with FAD, FAD and Nor-wham
Talked about our next trip east and how we would make sure to catch up with Mayzie, Tula and Miss Kylie
We wished we were on the beach in sunny Florida, with Roo .
And Stumpy crossed her paws, sending some pawer to Blueberry and her family.
Then I wiped the peanut butter off the cards and gave Stumpy a peanut butter bone.
Mail service in dirtville is a little on the tricky side, which is only slightly better than non-existant. I don't have home delivery. I go to the post office once a week, if I have something else to do in town. Since there really isn't anything to do in town, sometimes I don't make it there for a couple of weeks. I got a card from my sister, also yesterday. A Thanksgiving Day card that was mailed on November 22.
As a retired Letter Carrier for the USPS, I have nothing but admiration and respect for postal workers. The automated machinery leaves a lot to de desired (as do the ties in the ivory tower ::waves and flips them off::!) Plus, this is a contract office, so there's a world of difference. Dirtville's mail, after leaving the originating distribution center, goes through at least 3 offices/sorting facilites. that's 2 more than normal mail in normal places.
