COVID Card #171

Wikipedia sure does have a lot to say about Edward Chavez. To be fair, he did die before it was born. Edward Chavez painted two post office murals: Building a Sod House (which I initially thought was “Building a Sod Horse” and cannot seem to mentally correct now; Geneva, Nebraska) and Logging Scene (Center, Texas); he helped with a third Decorative Map (Glenwood Springs, Colorado).

The Smithsonian American Art Museum owns a few of his works…or do they? They rather make him look like a one-trick pony. I’m not trying to be rude, I could’t help the pony reference. Speaking of ponies, the MoMA also owns one of his works.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
