I was just thinking how uncouth it is to rob the post office. Most especially a rural post office, which can be the lifeblood of a community. Many years ago I met a man who was running the Conserve Our Rural Post Office campaign (CORPO). He had greyhounds. Every dog was named for the campaign Corpo 1, Corpo 2 etc. They were attached to a washing line pole that they could run around in the garden. Every victory at the races, a concurrent victory for the post office.

I don’t know what the current state of play is with the closure of rural post offices.  I must look it up. You could always pay your bills at the P/O I found that very handy.
