UPS Jeff is almost like family. We see him on a weekly basis. He was actually one of the first people to meet two-day-old baby Orpha. The boys get as excited to see that big brown truck coming down the road as they do when the garbage truck chugs down the alley.
In a small town, we’re creative with the activities we find entertaining. In my [strong] opinion, it’s the little things like these that make life wonderful. Finances, cattle, & church keep us pretty well rooted, but we could probably still find a way to travel a bit, but why would we want to leave this little chunk of paradise? We’ve got our own waterpark across the street thanks to Neighbor Kent for running the sprinklers at the Presbyterian church. This is the same Kent who provides my children with hours of entertainment watching him mow and visiting his awesome garage; it has a television! There are cars to wave at and trees to rope and tie. Like I said, it’s the little things.
I know Amazon and other internet companies are part of the reason Small Town Main Street has suffered. But truly, Amazon and the ability to ship nearly anything is what makes it possible to stay in Small Town, America. And thanks to UPS Jeff, our packages arrive right on time.
From my front step to yours,
The Displaced City Girl
