Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Gloom Of Night...

This is the post office in Havensville, Kansas ~ where my dad was a rural mail carrier for 20 years, after he retired from farming in 1963. He took his job very seriously ... never missing a day of work in 20 years. The mail must go through. His route required him to drive about 85-100 miles through the country backroads every day, and he never missed a beat ~ making his appointed rounds on time, come hell or high water. The bottom picture is the back of the post office ... notice Harley's drug store across the street. These pics were taken by me, circa 1982.
