Mail carrier: It’s a ‘magic’ time of year

Mailman Joe Forbins is delivering Christmas charm.

The native Wichitan is the whole Yuletide package. He believes this time of year is different.

“It’s magic,” Forbins, 33, said.

But folks on his Wichita Falls route probably fell in love with his big smile, upbeat attitude and caring ways long before cards and gifts passed from his hands to their mailboxes.

The favorite part of his work is the people he meets along his route in the southwest part of the city.

“That’s why I do my job in here so fast. I can’t wait to get out there,” Forbins, a Marine veteran, said Friday morning.
