Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Will the U.S. Postal Service ever get straightened out?
On Jan. 28th, I received a card from one of my sisters. I wondered why. Christmas was long over. It wasn't my birthday.
But it was a Christmas card!
Was she so busy that she didn't send cards until the middle of January?
Then I looked at the envelope more carefully.
Yup! Mailed Dec. 15th in Jersey and arrived at The Little House On The Swamp on Jan. 28th.
The postal service was one aspect of U.S. government that most of us liked, so of course 45 had to screw it up.
What stories do you have to share about problems with the mail? What's the longest it's taken for something you mailed to be delivered, or for something to arrive at your house?
I apologize for my recent absence. My sister-in-law died, which turned me into a lump of sadness. She was in a nursing home because of dementia, and she got COVID.
Although I've mourned this loss, I'm recovering from the attack. I'm doing quite well, physically and psychologically.
I'll visit as many of your blogs as I can this week. I miss you!
Infinities of love,
