More than mail is being delivered.....

Good morning, Sleuthers!

I'm Bernadette Butler and it might seem a bit early for you to be up, but I've been up since five a.m. Not by choice but because I'm already filling up my mail bag to deliver mail to the residents of Sugar Creek Gap, Kentucky. 

Sugar Creek Gap is a very small mill-town in the mountains of Kentucky.
Recently I moved downtown and gave my farmhouse to my son Grady and his wife. They are about to give me my first grandbaby!

Oh no...I'm not young, well in years. I'm a fifty year old widow who went back to delivering mail after my husband died. 

I'm actually glad I've got a walking route not only because it keeps me in shape, but I get to visit with all sorts of neighbors! 

Well, I better get going. I've got to get my first mail loop delivered. It's the Sugar Creek Gap Nursing Home and Senior Living Facility. I try to get there pretty early before all the residents get up because they like to talk...and they sometimes make me late for my second loop. 

I'll keep you posted about my stop on my mail route today.

Until then...tell me what's around your town?


  1. The new thing is that they opened some of the hair salons and I'm debating whether to try it or not.

  2. Nothing is open yet! Still waiting! Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. Nothing much open here, probably until the end of May. Will be interesting to see what our new normal will be.

  4. Not much around here. We are hoping to get back to normal but not looking good.

  5. Nothing new here. I'm looking forward to when the museums & libraries open back up.

  6. I love this series! Just the essentials still open here. Probably opening some the first of June.

  7. Really small town so pretty much all we have is a grocery store, a gas station, a post office, a library, and a church.

  8. Small town gas stations churches bars and 1 grocery store and a family dollar. Library and Museum too.
