Scene At The Post Office

A  L  O  H  A   from Honolulu 96815
Feels like
nothing really bad
could happen here.
I enjoy
checking the mail
at the Post Office.

“ Like Alexander the Great 
and Caesar, I’m out
 to conquer the world. -

- But first I have to stop 
at Walmart and 
pick up some supplies.” 
                           Jarod Kintz

Mid-20th Century Functional
Hawaii is largely 
a natural environment.
Being born in a large city, 
living much indoors,
makes this a 
strangely nostalgic 
space to me

Is that a drone
 waiting patiently?

It IS indeed!
Someone's pet
sent for their mail?
[ Is a drone a critter? ]

Back In The Day - And Today
Before GMAIL
this was your In-Box

Look. . . A HORSE!
NOT an every day event
[ Critter!! ]

Yes. It is a calming routine
(usually) to visit the USPS-
A Public Service 
that Works for
ALL of us!

How's YOUR Day?
                      Fondly, cloudia

Well from 0200 to 0630 thus far the day has been just fine.

Well, that was a satisfying visit to the post office, with a surprise drone present too! Have a happy Saturday!

You saw some neat sights at the post office. We are seeing more and more of those drones aren't we?

I love this trip you took us on today Cloudia.. j'adore the old mailboxes, still working efficiently today.

The post office--a constitutionally mandated service that is totally self-supporting! That is a beautiful post office, drone and all. The horses are gorgeous, too. So was the critter the drone or the horse?

So happy I dropped in, what a delightful trip! Thanks for sharing!
Happy Easter~

TexWisGirl said...

neat to see the horses. the drone was interesting!

EG CameraGirl said...

I laughed at the idea of a drone going to get the mail...but hey! I probably laughed the first time I heard that one day I'd receive most of my mail on my home computer. ;)

I believe the world is about to conquer me

Nancy Chan said...

It is not often we get to see horses in town.

Karen S. said...

Now I know that stunning white horse is a critter for sure. What fun it was going along with you this way. Let's do it again soon!

Aloha Cloudia!
Hope you are having a great time! Sorry for the long absence, but it was a harsh 2014...
Anyhow, enjoy the second half of my post on Valencia, Spain, with some old buildings around!
Wish you a great Easter and all the best!

RedPat said...

What a trip that was today, Cloudia!

Still early here. V early - it is not yet five. So far, so good.
Loved your critters today. Both critters.

Who knows, maybe we'll all have drones someday, just like everybody* has a cell phone now.

* Except me.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I've always liked those post office boxes. Those and card catalogue boxes. Wouldn't mind owning one.

Exciting Royal procession! Loved the touch with our not-so-distant past at the Post Office. I too go there to buy stamps...I have to have them to pay my bills because I am still paying them with paper! Aha...I refuse to be paperless!
