Last week, I sent out 4 packages, a book to Mila (Sophie's World) because she is interested in philosophy, a gift for Max's birthday, a package to Erin, and a package with Myrtle, The Nightmare Catcher to Diana. They went out on July 22, and I'm waiting to hear how long they take to arrive.
We sent an overnight gift in June for Mila's graduation that took a week to get there. Money was refunded for what was certainly not an overnight delivery. I don't blame the posties, but I do blame DeJoy for that slow down and more to come: "another USPS service cut that could slow down delivery times for first-class mail, shorten hours at some post offices, and increase the price of a first-class stamp."
This morning I realized I had only 1 postcard stamp left. I ordered more postcard stamps and regular stamps before the price goes up again in August. Not that I'm against paying a bit more for stamps, but I send a lot of mail and am ready to lay in a new supply. I have postcards and letters that need supplies right now. :) I do hope something can be done to save the USPS.

A train station that was still serving trains in 1966.
She and Ricky had been
visiting her sisters in Virginia and ate at a farm-to-table restaurant
owned by Barbara Kingsolver's family.
Anyone remember traveling by train?
My last train ride was when I was high school, and it was a delight.
Today, I'm writing some postcards and one letter that will (hopefully) go out tomorrow.
or dance to!
