  1. My daughter-in-law in Boston writes and sends snail mail often. She may be keeping the post office in business almost single handedly. đŸ™‚ I’ve been writing back (since she has been such an excellent influence), and sending frequent mail to her and the two small grandsons. Get your pens out or fire up your keyboard — everyone loves getting mail that isn’t a bill or an advertisement.

  2. Good on you and her, Fnord. One thing to keep in mind is that all these rural post offices struggling to stay open are evaluated, among other things, on the dollars of sales they make. So the next time you drive through a little town, buy some stamps. Buy a LOT of stamps. If you buy forever stamps, they never go bad, and it makes a huge difference for that much needed rural post office. Even if the Post Office is not open when you drive through, most have stamp machines in the lobby that are available during off hours. It makes a huge difference in the survival of a small town when it keeps its post office. Buying stamps is a good way to help keep them open. And a trip to a little town for lunch or whatever is always fun. Stop at their local store and buy plastic wrap, baggies, foil, toilet paper, something that doesn’t spoil. It makes a huge difference in keeping a tiny store open. Yeah, you’ll pay more than at Walmart, but what is the price of keeping the heart of a community open? The post office and the local grocery/general store are the hearts and souls of little towns. Help us stay alive!

    Just Great!! Don’t tell the GOP. They already hate the US Postal Service.
