The Postman Does Ring Twice

Hello my friends,  I am so excited today.  
I found my little Postman a few days
ago and I can show him to you.  

He is a little Hummel Postman.
Oh, how long I have waited for him.
More than 50 years have passed.
He isn't the one I wanted and was promised,
but I am ok and I am happy.

My sweet Aunt Carol lived in Germany in the early 1960's
When she came home she brought my Grandma the 
Hummel Postman.
It meant a lot to my Grandma.  Aunt Carol brought everyone
a Hummel, but not me.  She always told me that
when she died I could have the Hummel Postman
that she had given my Grandma. . . 
Well the years past, Aunt Carol died a few years ago.
But I never got the Hummel she had promised me.
So I went on the search. . .and I found him.
He has belonged to someone else for all these years,
Now he is mine.
My Aunt didn't need to give me any of her possessions.
I have the most beautiful memories of the time I spent with her.
Nothing can take the place of time and memories.  

I hope you are enjoying the last few days of October.
