USPS under Stress

(Note: Our mail lady delivers the mail in a gold Jeep, but you get the idea.) How is your USPS doing these days? Ours is really struggling. It has to be hard, with workers out with Covid, so many shipping issues and failures on the Federal level. They cannot deliver the mail to every house every day right now. On Thursday, they had to close the Post Office altogether (a first!). I'd be fine with a weekly delivery if it would help. I'm so grateful for our small group of carriers and clerks. Every day they risk their lives for us. I hope they come through it okay. Wondering if we should get a PO Box, so they won't have to deliver to us.

One Year Ago...

     The Vermont teacher who knitted Bernie's mittens was stunned at the recognition they engendered. She has teamed up with Vermont Teddy Bear Factory to make mittens based on her design, and a portion of the proceeds are going to charity.  During the past year, there have been a number of fund raisers with her mittens which also raised money for the Vermont Food Bank and other charities.  VPR spoke with her today:

Where to buy authentic Bernie mittens:
I'm buying a pair for a nephew's January birthday.

Mug Shot

 This was sent to me by a Methodist clergy friend! 😄

The original wording:

“Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can."
