Today an article in the newspaper informed us of further cutdowns in postal service. It seems the correspondence between me and my friend G (see this post from last week) is not enough reason to keep all the mailboxes after all. Well, so far there is no talk of closing the boxes through which we receive letters. But we might soon have to go for longer walks to be able to post them. In this district (town and surrounding area), they'll be taking down 60. And the ones that remain, will be emptied earlier in the day.
They are not making it easy for us old pen-and-paper-fanatics! Most likely, they won't even bother to send a letter to inform us which ones will be taken down, but let us discover that by ourselves. (Or look it up on the internet.)
Maybe we'll have to go back to using pigeons eventually?
