life at the beach

our Village has a post office
the Government says the post office is a fourth-class post office
this means they don't deliver regular mail
you go to the P.O. and collect it

but see how thoughtful our P.O. is?

I think it's a first-class operation


  1. I quite like our postie we have and I rank them highly and love the stories of how they get bribed by people to siphon mail and many don't succumb even on a modest wage. Like housework you don't realise how important they are until it doesn't get done!

  2. I like the landscaping! And, the sign, naturally.Is it safer to read and walk on even terrain?
    Have a happy 4th of July!

  3. Funny stuff.

    Ours is a half mile walk away in a little store; all village info/gossip/news is filtered through the PO. MLane will walk down to "get the mail" and reappear 2 hours later; "I bumped into some folks".

  4. We just lost our mail delivery in favour of a super box. Another daily pleasure gone. I wish we could walk to a post office and see a human being.


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
