Who Wants to Come to the Post Office?

Let's face it, going to the post office can be a bit dreary - it's crowded, people are grumpy (patrons and employees - sometimes), and there's always that one person holding up the drive-up box line by sitting at the box putting stamps on their letters. Small town post offices are often more friendly, less crowded, and less grumpy, but still not tops on the 'fun things to do this weekend' list. The post office in our town of 6,000ish has something new to offer its patrons this summer, however, that makes a visit much more interesting. Someone has added a nice flower garden in front of the building. For years there was a bare, ugly space between the sidewalk\parking\and building, but some fabulous gardener has adopted it and it's quite an improvement.

My photo doesn't do it justice, as it's difficult to snap a good photo in a busy parking lot! You'll have to take my word for it - it's a gigantic improvement and turns a bleak public space into something really nice. So a big thank you to the mysterious public-spirited gardener!

And now for something completely different - here's what happened to the rest of the Soy-Sherry chicken grilled last night:

A yummy summer lunch - thinly sliced chicken on mini potato rolls (slider size) with ginger aioli and lots of pickles. Mmmmm . . .


  1. The post office in our town is one of the major gossip centers. You must go there at the wrong time.:)

  2. Hello, you have the most gorgeous site here and I had to leave this comment for you ! Your posts are lovely and you have interesting pictures. It's all perfect so thank you for sharing them all and best wishes....

  3. Jim - I try to avoid the PO when it's busy, but maybe I should just hang around and listen . . .

    Elise - thanks so much for the kind words. Taking the photos has been an unexpected bonus of blogging! Have a great Sunday!
