one sad line

I suppose the reason mail carriers don a bluish-gray uniform has something to do with delivering somber, bad news.

Like Buddy Holly laments, a note from his baby stating she's simply no longer his....

Or maybe it's because once a long time ago 'unusual looking' mail carriers tugged the reins of hearse-like contraptions, like a dark foggy scene from A Christmas Carol, when they posted double duty and delivered to the morgue.
Not really..but this would sure give me chills passing by on a cloudy gray day:

But, alas, the Sun seems always to shine over at the home office of PFF...Pancakes For Free.

A little like people always assuming telegrams never bring good news, a left-over from the war years. I do like your post!

Gee....that is big. He must be hauling quite a load. Do you suppose he is sitting outside a (major) city post office? That building looks too big to be a post office...but I suppose it would be that large for a city like DC, NY, Chicago....
Thanks for sharing

have a beautiful weekend

Pancakes for Free is right! Here is some extra butter and syrup for you:) Mailmen certainly can be the bearers of bad news... Thank goodness 'kill the messanger' doesn't apply any more!
