A little thanks for the postman

A warm thank-you (in English and French)

This is what I added on my Holiday cards this year, as Canada Post announces its plans to shut down the door-to-door mail delivery in cities.

It is a small tribute to all the men and women who are often the sole contact with older people. Already, Canadians living in the country have to drive to their new superboxes. I hope that my future city mailboxe will be in walking distance.

And the Beatles song will never resonate the same way ever:
Please, Mr. Postman

No need to know how to draw: just do a quick red sketch in the bottom left  of your envelope, with a kind word. You may do a small delivery truck if you feel up to the challenge instead of those rounded red mailboxes.

A recent batch!
