About the book
The mail must go through! And it does in this humorous look at the experiences of real-life mailmen inthis small Southern town that goes by the zip code 72058.
Greenbrier, smack dab in the middle of Arkansas, offers a hot bed of short stories about mail delivery.
"Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" is the unofficial motto of the U.S.Postal Service. But see what happens when the unexpected occurs!
Chapters include stories about the variety of customers and their mailboxes; the kids, pets, critters, and wildlife encountered. Co-workers and the responsibilities of the job; the difficulties of weather; and the heavy volume of mail during the holiday seasons! There are also descriptions of some of the "unique" mail that must be dealt with, such as live bees, broken juice bottles, and even addressed beach balls.
Says the author,
"Our small post office is just like any everyday business office, with one exception : Together, we know EVERYONE in town!"
Most stories come from mailman Jesse Lee Hatfield's personal experiences, things that happened to his wife, Suzy, on her mail route, and from co-workers at the post office. The book is embellished with photographs, and is written over a five-year span covering the 23 years that Jesse has been a carrier.
