The Post Office Rocks!!!

Last Saturday (Aug 29th) I sent my Mother-In-Law in Tucson, Arizona some tomatoes from my garden and zucchini bread made from the excess my over-generous plants continue to offer. I sent three flat rate Priority boxes. I live in Tigard, Oregon (a suburb of Portland) and I know a lot of areas are having problems with their mail delivery, so I was a little worried about them getting there on time and safely. The last thing we got from her was a birthday card she sent my husband and it took 10 days. But she really loves fresh tomatoes and can't grow them there and her neighbors have been asking her if I was going to send more zucchini bread since last Summer, so I decided to risk it. I used 3 large flat rate Priority boxes and the clerk told me that they should get there by Tuesday (Sept 1st), but it wasn't guaranteed. I sent them on their way with fingers crossed, hoping that they would arrive before they were tomato sauce and moldy bread. She called me last night to tell me that she had gotten them yesterday afternoon - a day early, in less than 48 hours. I'm so happy. I am hoping that maybe the uproar from the citizenry caused by the attempt to destroy the post office has backfired and stopped them, at least for now.

1. Been a fan for 30 yeas

They aren't perfect, but a good 30 years ago I found them to be the most useful delivery service. When I lived in apartments, they would deliver to the front office. Their next day delivery included Sundays. They have offices everywhere so I could arrange to pick things up at my convenience. They have everything from cheap to special service delivery. They do holds for vacation and change of address when you move. They've been abused by congress (basically the republicans) for years but yet keep on ticking. No they are not perfect, but they are the best.
