This is the mailman. His name is Bill. He’s a veteran, and got this good government job after the war. He has been a mailman for a long time, and loves his job. You can tell by the smile on his face. He’s standing in Jean’s doorway, with a package for her. She hopes it’s pictures of her grandchildren.
That’s a big, heavy bag he’s carrying. He enjoys meeting the people on his route. He hears the sound of joy from the house, kids excited about what he’s bringing – maybe a box of chocolates! He’s also delivering love letters. This is his last delivery, and then he’s heading home.
