Daily effects of indoctrination 2, part 4 

Today's bulletin board offering is actually rather nice, given Mrs. S father was a postal carrier. But the fellow drove a jeep, as does the guy who delivers my mail (and I live in the city). One time his predecessor, now retired, came to ask for any of our excess apples from our two prodigious trees. I never did get his name, or to know him. Yet he brought the mail faithfully, we gave him a Christmas card and gift each year -- I was unfamiliar with this practice before marrying the daughter of a postman -- and we both enjoyed the experience. Were we "building community"? No, I just wanted my Sports Illustrated.
