A Day in The Life

I received these photos taken by Lisa, the Canada Post letter carrier, who I wrote about in Monday's post. She wanted to illustrate a typical wintry day delivering mail. These photos were taken on Monday. As I was cozy in my home writing about my day spent with Lisa, she was trudging through a blizzard with a bad head cold, getting the mail out as usual.

As I trudged through the snow on my way to the gym, I thought of Lisa trudging through the snow on her mail route. I could empathize and I hoped her customers were thinking of her as well.


  1. "Neither rain nor snow, nor sleet nor dark of night..."

    "...shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds".

    Well done Lisa!

  2. I think trudge is one of the best, most evocative words in the English language...not a tiptoe or a sashay...but a TRUDGE...the only way to get the mail delivered!

  3. Hang in there Lisa.You are appreciated,Donna

  4. Thanks for posting and the pics. I walked up to my job at the RR at 1 pm and enjoyed the lovely snowflakes drifting down...I forgot about all those people who have to trudge through the snow to deliver my bills...
