No mail today, unless it's from Amazon

The Post Office announced that there would be no mail delivery today due to the national day of mourning for President George H.W. Bush. I thought that was a nice and proper gesture. So I was surprised when a mail carrier delivered a package from Amazon today.

Mail man came today here. Delivered to all the mail boxes up and down the street.
I was out pruning the hemlocks along the street. I was surprised to see him stopping at every mailbox.

That makes you an exception to the rule, at least 'round these parts.

The USPS probably has a exception for package delivery, maybe it's just for AMZ.

Doing which?

For years they've observed a day of mourning of a passing President on his first birthday after his death.

I don't recall Sunday delivery except for the old Special Delivery and Express mail.

A local office that was closed on Saturdays would open on the second to last and last Satdurday before Christmas for package pickup, as well as having regular mail delivery.

I'm just happy to see that everybody survived the crushing pain of the USPS observing the day.

Speak for yourself. I'll be bitter until at least lunch time.
