The mail men with soft spots! I like it maybe well get that letter with only the first 4 digitsof your zip code! Our's won't deliver to our community box if there are people on  front side collecting their mail. Maybe a sheet in every pocket 4 in their bag and several around their necks.

Maybe one in each shoe, put a little bounce back in there step.

Thanks, Ceil
