I guess that figures. Being a rural mail carrier has been fun.
Of course, I won’t miss the extremes: cold, heat, snow, ice and even rain.
I will miss my friends and coworkers. We had a fun, happy group. Lots of laughs and kidding around.
Four of us, five including the postmaster, moved like clockwork organizing 10 to 14 feet of mail per carrier each morning. My clock seemed to slow down some in recent months, though.
So, “retired” is now inserted before rural mail carrier. I’m good with that. A former rural carrier used to say each day before we left, “have a good run.”
It’s been a good run.
