The US Mule brought the US Mail, and this was in it!


Recommended Posts

The mail carrier left a slip in the mail box yesterday.

Postage due, large envelope, two dollars and fifty five cents.

It wasn't in the post office when I went up with cash in hand.

It came today.

Here it is.

I about fell over.

I was nominated by an old squad partner.

In better than a quarter of a century of putting my life under the lights and siren, this is one of the only times anyone ever said thank you!

Thank You twice Mr. Keller once for the life you have lived and once for the great presence you have on the wire.

On that note...maybe start with the CONGRATS first.:wub:

 

I had a similar "you owe for" a package that was sent to me...I let it go back to the sender.

When the sender called for my address update, I explained the sutuation.

It was sent back with no postage due.

Seems it was put in the wrong shipoing code.

 

So yup, that was my first thought too.

 

Glad Mr. Keller got a well deserved (and from,a fellow mate) acknowledgement!!!

 

Have you read any of his books??

Yes Ma'am I have and I have told him on several occasions that when he writes about things like the "Silver Jewel" I can taste the ice cream.

 

 Which is sorta why I felt that I could poke my tongue firmly in my cheek and say what I said ......... stupid me.

 

There is a thread in the Saloon called Firelands the Beginning; it's a multicontributer story to which Mr. Keller was a major contributer ........ check it out too  :)

... good heavens, Wallaby, I thought it was funny!

I'm one of the hardest people to irritate you'll ever meet.

It's possible to make me mad ... it IS possible, but you have to work at it, and so far, you ain't!

(Besides, every time I take myself too seriously, I end up looking like the north end of a south bound horse!)

Spend an hour with me and a bottle. I'm told I'm most irritating!

Looks to be well deserved.  Congratulations on the recognition.

That's worth framing and hanging someplace where everyone can see it.

 

Congratulations.
