They must deliver to you, Bonnie.  My problem is that the USPS does not 
deliver packages to us.  Since we live about 1/3 mile from the main road, the eight 
houses on the road have a cluster mailbox on the main road.  Anything too 
large to go into the box is not delivered.  They put a notice in the box that it 
can be picked up the next day - even Express Mail which is supposed to be next 
day delivery.  Our mail still goes through the Peekskill post office though 
there are three small offices nearer us.  Peekskill is notorious for poor 
service - I could give you some hair-raising tales.
