Debbie, the postal lady for our area, was transferred to

a new route while I was in Hawaii. She had been our postal carrier for 17 years and in that time she knew everyone on her route including their pets. Bubbly and full of personality she would always deliver packages and mail with a smile and as one man put it - If you were short on your stamps she would put a stamp on your mail knowing that you were good for it later.

We are about the same age and have other things in common as well which fostered our relationship. Her oldest is also living in Hawaii. Her daughter graduated with S1 and Debbie and I sat in court together the day that our children received their official drivers license.

According to the lady at the post office in our little town people cried on Debbie's last delivery day.

But now we have a new carrier. I met her on Monday. She is cute, bubbly, chatty and I think will be fine.

We do get used to nice people, who are in our lives. Even if they are only in our lives, in a peripheral way. :-)

Good Morning, Jodi,
Oh, it is always hard to adjust to change, isn't it. I hope your new carrier works out.

Here, they closed our downtown post office. It's where I went to mail packages 3 to 4 times a week. I knew those postal workers by name, and they always asked about my mom and our daughters. Now I have to drive out to the main post office and stand in line. Boo...

Anyway, I hope you are enjoying your summer break. Have a wonderful weekend. ~Natalie
