Wait A Minute Mister Postman; Postcard Party 54

Tuesday's Postcard Fun Fact:

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin was our first postmaster?  He accepted the position in 1775 which paid $1,000 a year.  Often we think that due to inflation that this sum of money would be significant, but if he was paid this rate in today's market he would be earning about $30,000. Hopefully he kept his day job too :)

I feel like showing off some of my beautiful girls today:
