Thank A Mailman Day! by Gabby

Go ahead everybody, please just do it! 🙂  On this day of February 4th is when we should seriously thank our mailman…Or to be more politically correct our mail person/ carrier. After all, there are some girls who decided they would like the job of being out and about delivering the mail, too. I have a feeling they rather would be insisting on being called mail person, don’t you? 😉

My goodness, all those brave souls are walking around in all kinds of weather and also dealing with the not so friendly dogs and who knows what else! Six days out of the week they are on the job, just think about it kind readers! That’s a lot of walking and that’s also carrying a heavy mailbag, too. I actually not so long ago had a chat with my mailman, he was spilling the secrets of these neighborhood blocks that surround me.


I must say, it was a surprise to hear that actually there were a few dogs he’s had run-ins with. Also, I heard about some neighbors who waited and watched that clock( rather impatiently sometimes) for the mail to roll in! He told me that unfortunately sometimes he wasn’t treated kindly…Of course that did make me feel sad for him.

It really is always a surprise and kind of shock to me when people aren’t grateful and behave in a not very good manner for those who are doing a good job and helping us. I have a feeling that makes me rather naive, but I seriously can’t help myself. Autumn is much the same way, we Twinnies are always trying to look on the bright and good side as you kind readers already know. Anyway, I intend to thank my mailman today and everyday I happen to see him…Autumn says she is going to do the same, Yay! Who is with us? Will you kind readers please think about the mail carriers today and give them a big thank you if you do indeed happen to see them? It will make for a lot of smiles and that’s what it really is all about, right? Of course it is! 🙂

Oh I forgot to mention… Just in case you don’t get a chance to ever see your mailman maybe you could leave them a nice little thank you note! It’s just a thought and trust me, it would make for a very kind and thoughtful gesture and just may make their whole day, too! 🙂 🙂

  3. I acquired a great fondness for my mailman. Through snowdrifts~ he delivered when I lived in Maryland.
    He always had a smile and had been a postal worker for many years. They do deserve Kudos and you do too for mentioning them.

    • Your mailman in Maryland sounds like one of the best Cynthia…He always had a smile and got your mail to you through the snowdrifts. He deserves kudos along with my mailman and all the rest of them, I agree. Thank you so much for saying I deserve kudos, too…You are are so kind as always and I appreciate it very much! I really do just love spreading the word on these special days. 🙂

    • That’s going to make your mail carrier’s day, way to go Mark! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and reading this post, it’s very much appreciated. 🙂 Gabby
