Hello, I am Jess Thornton! I worked as a mailman for almost 40 years, the vast majority of it in Kachuda, Wisconsin. This is a small city of about 50,000 souls on the west coast of Wisconsin, bordering the Mississippi river. I have published several books about those days, starting with Mailman Tales. Driftless Mailman follows, and both are now available in audio book format as well as print.
Now I am retired from the Kachuda post office, and watch in dismay as the USPS management continues to do everything wrong, destroying the very service they are meant to lead and preserve. Hopefully that can be turned around- the postal service was for the early part and the majority of my career very efficient and well run- it can be again!
My days are now spent reading, writing, recording, podcasting, exercising, and planning out my meals which are of the paleo variety. (Check out PaleoJays Smoothie Cafe on iTunes). I also work on my smallholding of land, as I have for the past many years, along with my wife Marie.
