Getting the mail probably isn't a big deal to those currently looking for Pokeman figures, but for a lot of us the visit by the letter carrier is a part of the day...
For years Rick Loonan was our mailman. He lived in the neighborhood and is a great guy.....You could chat with him and feel connected.
Most days now we have a fetching blonde named Bobbie who brings the mail . Sometimes its someone else. Either way its good to see them.
Today's mail included some junk and a wedding invitation in a form I'd never seen before. A post card with "save the date" on it. No embossed card with the sheet of tissue paper inside. I got a Stefanik bumper sticker too along with a computer generated thank you letter for my donation for this year.
The US Mail is a great equalizer in our society and I don't care if it loses money...For fifty cents any American can send a missive to anywhere in the country.
That personal expression is no longer part of it all is only a loss to those living in the way things were. Those kind of people won't be around too long anyway.
