I ring the bell and the shopkeeper, an older woman, comes out and opens the store. After buying a can of Mountain Dew and an Almond Joy bar (junk food for the granola man!), I go to the post office next door to mail a postcard to a friend.

Well, it's her again, running the post office as well as the store, with separate exterior entrances for customers. Hello, goodbye, hello!

We chat a bit, which is nice because I haven't spoken to anybody in a couple of days. She talks about her grand-children, who are adults now.
