We took a short drive into the small town of Natalia today. The population is only about 1,600 or so but the place seems smaller than that. I had called the post office ahead of time to ask what paperwork I would need in order to get a mailbox set-up. The place we are moving to uses those mail box clusters so we will need to get a box assigned and some keys.
When we walked in, the older guy behind the counter reached for a card and started to hand it to me before we could even explain what we were there for. He said, "You called about an hour ago, right?" Holy crap! This guy not only knows all 1,600 residents, but he can even tell what people look like over the phone.
