Powell Naturalist As I glanced at the calendar this morning, I saw that this Sunday is Father's Day, and I quickly felt both happiness and a touch of apprehension. For my initial reaction, I could see in my minds eye my three wonderful children desperately seeking at the very last moment something, anything. Anything. And l also could see myself on my day, opening up one or several gifts, hoping that my children didn't have to work too hard to get something for me, or in the ease of my elder daughter's case, use up the last corner of her American Express Card. The reasons why I cringe when I see Father's Day coming up are not only from the gifts that' I have received, but also from one specific gift I gave to my dad. Without a doubt, the most impressive and most disastrous gift I gave my father involved his favorite hunting boots. I asked my grandfather what would be a good Father's Day present and he quickly replied that my dad's favorite boots needed a good cleaning and oiling. So I pulled out Dad's Gokey hunting boots, pulled off the laces and scrubbed all the season's mud, flooded the boots with a hose, pulled out the foxtails out of the inside. Then I set the boots out to dry on top of the garage. And while the boots were drying, I called all the Labrador Retrievers and we had a good swim in the pond across the meadow. We returned after several hours and then I looked for the oil for theboots. The only trouble was there were two- one gallon cans of oll side by side. One was Neat's-foot Oil and the other Linseed oil. The first one sounded like the one to use, but I wasn't sure, so I went to ask granddad. He couldn't be found. So here I was, I guess about nine or ten years old, and I had to make a decision. As I was trying to read the faded print on the cans, I heard one of the dogs tearing away at not only the laces, but one of the pups was chewing wildly at the tongue of dad's favorite boots. I yelled at them and retrieved the boots. Quickly I pulled out a can of oil and wiped the laces and boots, then hid them so my dad wouldn't see them. Then came Father's Day. Early in the morning I went out and picked up Dad's boots. I was ready. Ready until I touched the. boots: they were sticky and wet. They felt like a wild snail party occured all night, Then I got that sickening feeling. I put linseed oil on his favorite boots. I don't recall the other Father's Day gifts I gave dad. This oiling could not be surpassed as far as disasters. Granddad helped me out on other Father's Days gifts. Now I do know that grandfathers are every boy's answer for life. So this Father'sDay, what I really would like, and rm sure there are many fathers who would agree, is just to be together, to share a laugh about the good times we have had together. And of course, a good ribbing about not so memorable times; It's not really a gift rm wanting from my children; what I want is for them to know I love them and that I feel proud to be their father. Their smiles, laughter and hugs are the true gifts. For the greatest gift I have ever received from my children is their love. I" "A man of diffident manner will never inspire confidence.

Consumers Have One More Easy And Convenient Way To Change Their Address This Moving WASHINGTON, D.C. - Moving will never be easy but the Postal Service has now made it more convenient by offering the 45 million Americans who move annually three methods of forwarding their mail. In addition to submitting a hardcopy form at the Post Office, or submitting a change through our website, usps.com, consumers now have the added convenience of changing their address by telephone at 1-800-ASK-USPS (i-800-275-8777). To file a change of address by telephone, consumers can simply dial 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777) and select the change-of- address option. Part of the process uses interactive voice response (IVR) and only takes minutes. There is always the option to speak with a customer service agent regarding questions or concerns Like internet change of address, customers will need to have a valid credit card for identity verification and security. A nominal fee is charged. The Postal Service is careful to take steps to ensure the change of address is authorized, and to protect individuals' privacy and security. Once the application is received by the Postal Service, the customer will be notified through the standard change-of-address confirmation process. First, a move validation letter will be sent to the old address indicating the request to forward mail. Then, a confirmation notification letter will be sent to the new address In both cases, if the address change is unauthorized or incorrect, the consumer is advised to call 1-800-ASK-USPS immediately The main benefit for consumers is consistent, more efficient and speedier delivery. Like usPs.com, Telephone Change of Address helps reduce the number of illegible and incomplete change of address forms that are submitted through the hard copy option. More than six million Americans have changed their address online at www.usps.com. In a recent survey, over 80 percent of respondents said they would definitely use the online change of address service for their next move. This is another example of how the Postal Service is making it quicker, easier and more convenient than ever to use postal produces and services.
