post office.

Standard

Ochopee has one 131-mile mail route that serves more than 900 residents. The mail route covers deliveries in three counties and includes delivery on the Miccosukee Indian Reservation. The tiny building used to serve as a storage shed for irrigation pipes for a tomato farm but was pressed into service as post office after the Ochopee general store/post office was destroyed in a fire in 1953.

“another success is the post office, with its educating energy augmented by cheapness and guarded by a certain religious sentiment in mankind; so that the power fo a wafer or a drop of wax or gluten to guard a letter, as it flies over sea, over land, and comes to its address as if a battalion of artillery brought it, i look upon as a fine meter of civilization.”

 shoutout to the post office

for supporting my love

of letter writing, shipping, and receiving

they are my heroes

even on a less than perfect day 

here’s to them for keeping it going

in spite of everything. 

 

“postman’s bag is always heavy because it carries the life itself:

it carries all the sorrows and all the joys, all the worries and all the hopes!”

or does anyone else

see the irony

in

a 10-minute limit

for parking

at a post office?

why do they

threaten us

with an

unknown

punishment

(maybe having to work a shift there?)

if we are

still parked in their lot

after 10 minutes

and then

force us

to stand in line

for 45 minutes?

the federal government spends millions to run the Postal Service.

i could lose your mail for half of that.
