I do think we need reform when it comes to the post office.

Amy, do you ever order online? How do packages come to you without the post for now if you have gotten any?

It is not too much of a concern for that I don't think. People knew about the possibility of a postal strike for over a month so if there was anything that need to be ordered it could have been done in advance.

Are they part of the government or a separate entity, Amy?

We can get them locally, but it is cheaper to get name brands through the mail.

I live in Canada so it's been difficult.

They actually were locked out and now have been ordered back to work.

My dad sent me a letter weeks ago that I have been waiting for, he is eighty.

I like to write cards and letters and receive them.

My ds looksf forward to the mail to.

No mail delivery now for about three weeks...

One day as I waited for my bus the postal workers who were locked out of our local Post Office offered me a cold bottle of water some sunscreen and some shade.

I really appreciated their kindness.

Most people honked their horns in support.

These days I look forward to receiving ANY mail that they Canada Post deliver.

Nothing more exciting than checking your mail box and there is something in it...how absolutely cool!!!
