July 26, 1775 Benjamin Franklin became the first Post Master General even tho there wasn't much mail being transmitted between people at that that time.
The Postman was a movie Kevin Costner starred in where I think there was a line like...'thru wind, rain, sleet and snow your mail will be delivered'. Or something to that effect. Well what the hell has happened despite the exorbitant rising costs of shipping?
On December 6, 2020 I ordered a pattern from Cushing and just received it yesterday January 12, 2021 ~ it took 37 days to get here from Wells, Maine. FYI I do NOT blame Cushing as I've always received my orders from them in a timely fashion. Anyhoo......
Here is my late birthday/early Christmas present to myself arriving after the new year 😂.
