It is nice to see a postman passing by, riding his motorcycle with many letters he brings behind his back. A postman in an orange uniform, the real appearance of a postman in my mind has started to blur I think. In one side I love to have a not so manual life, but I started to miss some manual ways of life in the other hand. And I found some facts about postman, because while admiring a postman passing by at a tech-time like this, I typed and browsed.
1. There is a site where it sells postman bag. It probably a common thing, but not for me. I was thinking that it is a stuff provided by the post office. Want to buy? Click.
