Can you believe, I'm the first Postmaster General and I actually got three greeting cards BY E-MAIL this year. The nerve!
I got one from my brother Josiah, who is running his farm in Pennsylvania. He said he was "going green," this year. I deleted it. Another came in from Ye Old Print Shoppe Suppliers LTD. I don't think I'll buy my ink from them. And I got another from a jokester calling himself "King George."
What is it with this trend? I sent out print greeting cards this year (custom made, I might add) and even added a few names to my distribution list. (Alexander Hamilton still will not get one until he takes back that comment he made about my weight!)
But I haven't got as many back -- and I'm wondering why. Overall, postmarks are down about 11 percent this year -- and many of those may be Christmas, holiday and greeting card declines.
Have you received many cards?
