Thinking the brick-n-motar post office is going down the same path the town library has been treading for decades. They were once very important - the only access many had to books a/o long distance communication, but today were are overloaded with easy access to too much communication and info.

Then again the realist in me realizes that the USPS is spnding a boatload of money to prove they need at least two boat loads of money. One boat load to cover the research and more boatloads to cover what they can manipulate that research to 'prove'.
I suspect your 'Two for two' in your observations. I just hope mine (White City, Oregon) is not one. Great folks, never a miss on incoming, or out going to where ever that may be (UK, Western Europe, Canada, etc.) As well as their Postie Folks. Package just gets there, where addressed, and some of those I have to read and do a "Say what as to the address?"

Fav headed off as "Old Stone Cottage...." Seven working days later and Fellows package was handed over.

'Posties' get bad press, but I've yet to meet one that deserved the tirade.
