Twice this week I've had nice, friendly chats at our local PO, where I have to go several times a week as that's how we get mail; a PO box. First, was the lady behind me in line and the second was with our Postmaster who it turns out is also from Oregon! She asked me how we were liking it here, just out of the blue. I told her we liked it a lot, are getting used to the weather and dry air, and are enjoying the lack of traffic and how nice people were. Then I added that I was hoping that I, too, could become nicer. We'll see.

Of course, I was there today to (finally) mail off mine and the Beastie Grrrlz's thank you notes for Christmas gifts. Even though the dogs are only 2.33 and 1.25 years old, they write thank you notes. It is never too early to teach your kids the most basic manners: saying please and thank you.
HEADS UP! The postal rates for First Class Mail go up on Sunday, January 27, 2013 so get in there and get your Forever Stamps (now available in LOTS of designs) soon!
