So Long…and Thanks For All The Memories

Should living persons get a stamp?

Hello all, Benny here.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, and I’m sure I picked up a thing or two along the way, its that change is inevitable. For the past few years, I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with you here, sharing stories about the Postal Service, our wonderful country, and the rest of the world. We’ve seen good times and some not so good times. No matter what has happened though, we’ve gotten through it together.

As we turn the page on another year, it’s with great sadness that I must tell you that it’s time for me to say goodbye. The sands of time are calling me home, and I won’t be able to return. I just wanted you to know how much I’ve enjoyed our time together, and that if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to be right here with you, sharing great adventures in life.

You were the inspiration for me being here, spending time with you on a wide range of topics under the sun. I hope you were encouraged by the moments we shared together, and that you were inspired in some way to live your life more fully and creatively. I know I’m a better person for having been here with you.

Take care my friends. And thanks for all the wonderful memories!
