There has been much talk about UPS and Fed-Ex, who didn’t get all those Christmas and holiday packages to their customers in a timely manner. And yet our U.S. Postal Service seems to have gotten the job done no matter what the weather conditions may have been.
For that I say, “Bravo!” As we used to say when I was in the Navy, “You’ve done a yeoman’s job,” meaning “Well done.”
Now let me give praise to our mail carrier, named Diane, who delivers to Bellerose and Glen Oaks Village. She seems to always have a smile on her face as she greets those on her route with a happy hello. When I walk my dog, Jack, a Jack Russell, she more often than not has a treat for him. And the other day before Christmas she gave him a little stuffed animal mouse, which he loved very much.
If Diane marks the caliber of mail carriers, we are truly most lucky indeed. In closing, let me salute all of our mail carriers. Kudos for a job that was done above the call of duty.
