Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day fifty of that project.

This quilt block shows a tall brown building with a curve shaped roof. In the center of the roof is a round sign that says, "Post Office." There are five windows, three in a row on the second floor, and the door is yellow with a handlebar doorknob.

This is the official post office for my little town. It looks like a very serious building. I’m sure it is.

The post office is still a lifeline in small towns and rural communities. It’s how we get and send packages to loved ones. How some of our bills still come to us, and payments go out.

I think everyone loves to get mail. I know that it’s a huge treat for my grandchildren when their magazine subscriptions come every month and they have a sweet friend that sends cute cards she makes every month.

My mother-in-law is a wonderful person and if you are her friend or family she writes letters. Real letters, handwritten and newsy.  I am continually impressed by her commitment to the written word. I know having been on the receiving end it’s a thrill to get one of her letters.

I think I’ll send a card to my out-of-town grandchildren as soon as I can. Maybe you could send a note to someone who is away.  I know email and texting are easier.
