    I met a retiree that had one of these old delivery records.
    I have 3 or 4 of teh banker's clips we used to hold down the pages ... I'm going to give it to him.
    I told him about my personal DIAD I that I bought in a United Way auction. That thing is a weapon!

    I've got a whole bunch of UPS related old stuff I will post from time to time now that I think I've figured out how to.

    Rescued from the dumpster (the 2-wheeler not the Harley) when UPS converted from steel 2-wheelers to aluminum. Been repainted several times. Ten pounds heavier than a cow.

    I only used one of those suckers when I had no choice. Heavy POS with lousy wheels.

    I bet I have loaned it out 50 times to people who have an appliance to move. With the lip folded down it works great on washers, dryers and refrigerators.

    The UPSnews.
    You could submit news, announcements, recipes and generally anything you waned to announce to other UPSers. Remember Greg Neiman was the head of it? He's a published author now, so his name is already outthere.

    I think that went away when "The Big Idea is Service" slogan was abandoned.

    Thanks--seems like every year I ride it less and less. Only about a thousand miles on it this summer--so far.

    Apparently every region had their own section where service and safe driving anniversaries and other accomplishments were acknowledged. It was always interesting to see who made the news. I also liked the annual "Records of UPS" edition. ie" most CODs in a day- most stops- etc. Kind of like Ripleys Believe it or Not.

    My wife chose the color combination---its called dark metallic root beer with light metallic root beer accents.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We still have trucks with those paper delivery pads and a few drivers still use those old dollies.
