The post office

It was already evening when we got to Asheville yesterday so we couldn't go to to post office to pick up Mar's mail that her daughter forwarded for her here.

On the way here last night we got a chance to see how close the post office was to the house so we decided to walk there today. According to google maps it was only .3 miles, so we bundled up and off we went.

After waiting in line for a few minutes, when it was our turn to go up to the counter, we were informed this particular post office has no general delivery and to get the mail, we would have to go to the main post office downtown.

We have been to 18 other states and this has never happened before ... but there is always a first time for everything, isn't there?

The other post office was only about 3 miles away and they drew us a map, but we were on foot so first we tried to find a bus to get us there but there were no bus stops near us that we could walk to, so we headed back to the house.

Lucky for us, Lula had come home early from work to wait for an appliance repair person and she was kind enough to lend us her car. So we drove to downtown Asheville, found the post office and picked up Mar's mail, and it was nice to get to see a little bit of downtown.

After we got back to the house, Bernie installed some window blinds for Lula, and then they discussed some more the projects that Bernie will do while we're here.
