Photo of The Month – Dec 2012

Like birds on a wire, “bored” members of chapter #28024 of the USPS Morning News Club line up at the local post office.
They are, above from left, Phillip White, Marc Swing, Leroy Parris, Herman Brackett, Joey Cantrell, Carl Kinard, Phillip Houser, Maurice Houser, Guy Hamrick and Joe Randall.
On this day (12/23/2011) a number of members were absent, including Cecil Houser, Scott Houser, Horton Landreth, and Bob Hawkins to name a few.
Each day the facility is open (and especially if there’s coffee inside) a quorum is present from about 8:00 to 10:00am. The agenda of this august assembly is to share new gossip and rehash the old; solve the nation’s problems through spirited discussion; relive the town’s past with foggy and often exaggerated reminisces; and hope the Postal Service’s budget cuts don’t do away with a good thing.
It is said that Phillip Houser (postmaster) is writing a history of this loosely-formed but dedicated organization.
