COVID Card #300

March 1, 2021 | 0 comments

In honor of women’s history month, COVID Card 300 (yeah, this is card 300 big whooping deal — kind of feels like that doesn’t? I mean, when you’ve made 300 of something in 300 days, they sort of lose their wonder — they become ho-hum, just another day at the office — oh there’s Tina and her postcard) features a female muralist, Gertrude Goodrich. I’m going to try to feature a woman in all COVID Card stories this month. We’ll see how I do.

The web doesn’t know much about Ms. Goodrich — no surprise there. She made one post office mural: Production (Buchanan, Michigan).

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.
