At the Post Office, hope reigns

At the Mount Royal office of the U.S. Postal Service in Duluth Wednesday morning, I asked a clerk how long it might take a small package to reach its destination in Minneapolis by regular mail. It wasn’t a Christmas package, just something our son needed.

“It should get there no later than Friday,” the clerk replied.

I said that was fine, although I was hoping the package would get there sooner.

“It might get there tomorrow,” the clerk said. “It IS the season of miracles.”

I had to appreciate her optimism.

  1. On November 25th, at approximately 9 am central time, Kewaunee WI, what I believe to be a golden eagle landed on the deck of my house and attempted to grab my toy poodle puppy. Just missing the puppy, my other dog, a Blue Heeler just missed catching the bird and then it flew away off to the DNR land ajacent to my land. I have not seen it since. I knew it was not a hawk because of its size and color. I live approximately 2 miles from the lake off of Hwy 42. I never would have believed it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes.

    Waiting for your reply/comment.
