COVID Card #173

The card formerly known as #172. Oops. There can be only one.

I suppose that when your name is Archie Musick, being a musician would seem a bit predictable or maybe a promoters dream. No matter. Archie was an artist. Archie painted four post office murals. Three (Loading Cattle, Moving Westward, and Stockade Builders) are in Red Cloud, Nebraska; the fourth (Hunters, Red and White) is in Manitou Springs, Colorado. The Smithsonian American Art Museum holds a couple of 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.
