Have you noticed that mailboxes like this one have all but disappeared? Growing up, they were all over the place in our city! Yesterday while running errands, I had something to drop in the mail and I passed not one of these blue boxes on the path that I had taken. Oh, I did get it in the mail, but I had to drive to the Post Office and drop it in their drive-thru box...sigh.
I know this is probably money saving for the USPS and it surely guarantees less stops for our Mail Carriers, but it makes me sad. The world as I new it...is changing. With the art of Letter writing almost unheard of and the paying of Bills and doing our Banking On-line, something's got to give...so, goodbye old friend. I will add you to my list of "Those were the days." And I will sorely miss them!
