The Postman Always Rings Twice...

I made this self-portrait 6 months into my 30 year postal career. If the patch on my left shoulder was more visible you'd see that it's not the stylized Postal Service eagle, but the old Post Office Department design with the maroon & blue embroidered Pony Express rider.
Been a lot o' water under the bridge since them days...
Still Delivering The Goods Though!

An ancient photo from the dregs, and one from yesterday's United Natural Foods co-op order arrival, tie 37 years of my life together with the delivery of goods.

I haven't been a very responsive blogger of late, and my only excuse is that it's a busy time around here and the computer isn't getting much attention.
Now we're out of town for 4 days, to the Eastern Sierra again for another visit with Brad, Amy, Claire & Hannah.
We'll catch a David Lindley performance in Bishop, do some hiking for sure, and I'm hoping to get some more photos of the lovely Alabama Hills!

See you Sunday evening, and maybe I can catch up on some of the comments then.
Both photos were taken by Jim using a tripod. Some things don't change much!

Nice pics! I've always thought it would be fun to be a postal worker. Although in this day of locked neighborhood boxes, I'm not sure it would be as enjoyable as it once was when you walked from house to house delivering the mail.

I enjoy your blog and love to read about your days at earth home garden. Sounds like a wonderful place to be! Have fun on your trip!

Thanks for posting these pics! I'm surprised (and glad) the Postal Service didn't make you cut your hair!)

Great photos, Jim. You've aged quite well, and with much obvious happiness. Hope your trip to Bishop is a good one. I love hiking the eastern sierra. It's always beautiful.
