The Mailman

The mailman is someone the farmer looks forward to seeing on a daily basis. When I was a kid, the mailman was often the only car that drove by the farm on a summer day. And in the winter, if there was a winter storm, we would always wait to see if the mailman would make it through the stormy, country roads before trying to make it into town. He was our touch to the outside world. Remember, most of us did not even have a phone on the farm.
