if we had done christmas decorations as a kid, the house would have had bah humbug on it. 

 

 

 

 

 

dad was a mailman for 35 years. 

we did not see him between thanksgiving and christmas, he left on 4am the day after thanksgiving and did not come back home until after midnight on christmas. he averaged 20 hour days during that time

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..

Had two rural postal carriers in my family too and in those days you never seen them either during the Christmas season.

dad was a postmaster Bob, so his job was even worse than a carriers.

My second uncle up the chain was Postmaster in Puxico, MO for many years, but that was before my time. Once retired he went back to work as a rural carrier and did that well into his 80's. He had a fleet of AMC Ambassador, and IH Scout vehicles with most being RHD until finally hanging it up.

Was he still carrying when the Sears catalog went by the wayside? I can't imagine carrying a bag full of those things.

no idea. probably though. he retired in 85. but stopped delivery and went behind the desk in 65, except for when he went out on a fire investigation. besides being postmaster he was also a federal arson investigator.
