POST OFFICE

Hi folks,

Below is the "new" post office for Tyner, Indiana, where I went to three years of high school. The actual post office is the blue thing below the sign...

Okay. You wanna talk about small towns you've lived in?


This is about a block from the garage where a bunch of us used to go at noon to smoke on our lunch break from school...

Blue skies,
Les

Hi Les - you have me beat. Decatur, In actually had a buidling for the post office. Good times, my friend.

My town had 4000, but it did have a P.O. Don't know how much longer any town will have a P.O. with all the congressional efforts to privatize everything. Ben Franklin is crying in a corner somewhere.

Sarah, Decatur is a major metropolis compared to Tyner! Carl, maybe the P.O. would survive if they took away the out-of-sight bennies they enjoy... But FedEx and UPS do it better and cheaper anyway... Plus the Internet. I'm always reminded of our carrier who always arrives to deliver our mail 4-5 hours early on the good weather days so he can go play golf... kind of showing he could do the job a lot quicker if he was perhaps in business for himself and didn't make anything unless he worked... Just sayin'...
