Today The United States Postal Service Delivered A Christmas Miracle To Texas
Two packages were delivered to my door by a United States Postal Service mailman.
Last year, a few days before Christmas, I got a note in my mailbox telling me the mailman was unable to deliver a package. This turned into a month long debacle after which a box of stale cookies were finally successfully delivered, although not to my mailbox or front door, but to a neighbor's front door.
Around 1 this afternoon I heard someone knocking on my door. I opened the door to find a mailman handing me a package.
Then somewhere between 3 and 4 this afternoon I heard someone knocking again. I opened the door to find the same mailman delivering another package.
Unprecedented service from the US Postal Service.
In the photo above, that would be package #1, from Washington, on the bottom, with package #2, from Arizona, on top.
Sitting on top of package #2 is my one and only Christmas decoration, that being my lovable Christmoose, who moved to Texas with me, way back late in the last century.
I won't be opening these packages until Christmas. It gives me something to look forward to, which is something I need during this bleak, cheerful, happy holidays time of the year....
