COVID Card #172

October 24, 2020 | 0 comments

Kenneth Evett was, according to the Smithsonian, “perhaps best known for his landscape watercolors.” I am rather partial to his murals in the Nebraska State Capitol: Labors of the Heart, Labors of the Head, and Labors of the Hand.

Evett painted five post office murals: Building the New Road (Golden, Colorado), Cowboys Driving Cattle (Caldwell, Kansas), Picnic in Kansas (Horton, Kansas), Changing of the Horses for the Pony Express (Horton, Kansas), and The Auction (Pawnee City, Nebraska). The Smithsonian American Art Museum holds some of the studies for the murals.

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.
