ABC Wednesday-U

Founded in 1907 as a messenger company in the United States, UPS has grown into a $49.7 million corporation by focusing on the goal of enabling commerce around the globe.



Today UPS, or United Parcel Service Inc., is a global company with one of the most recognized and admired brands in the world.


As the largest express carrier and package delivery company in the world, UPS are a leading provider of specialized transportation, logistics, capital, and e-commerce services.


Every day, UPS manages the flow of goods, funds, and information in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.


At this time of the year, having a familiar UPS delivery truck come to your home also brings a smile to your face.
(And it is always nice to see a man in a UNIFORM.)

MHS uses UPS daily in his business. They really do make our lives a little easier. I have taken to pronouncing the name "oops" as did my mother. :-)

Unique!

TSannie said...

You have a bear for every occasion. And this one is perfection! Thanks for the lesson.

BTW - per MPM's Blanchett blog entry - that's the way I still stand every time I sneeze. What's that surgery???

Very original post for the letter U. We were both thinking along the same lines...parcel and postal.
Cute UPS teddy.

Moannie said...

I love all your Bears, but that one has taken my heart, lord knows why. If she were mine I would call her 'Upsadaisy'.

Aileni said...

I have an 'UPS' right in front of me - Uninterruptible Power Supply.
I am afraid my bear is somewhat naked.

mrsb said...

Oh, I love a man in uniform!

Mental P Mama said...

And can anyone explain why the men in their brown uniforms are so gorgeous? Uncanny.

Reader Wil said...

I like your post very much! You manage to have your bears involved in all kind of memes and you do it so skilfully!

babooshka said...

I also loie the incuion of a bear in relation to each post, and Ups is such a good choice.

nonizamboni said...

What fun! Perfect choice for today -- and I agree it is always nice to see a man in a uniform. :O)

RuneE said...

Do they deliver bears in Uniform too?? ;-)

Dave said...

My mother in law says it as a word. One word instead of U.P.S.
I tell her it's not like "what's ups"? yet she still calls it that.
It vexes me.

:)

Suldog said...

Ah, Lord, women and UPS drivers! I've got to get me a brown uniform if I ever get back to the dating scene :-)

Bibi said...

Did you see "Legally Blonde"? There was a cute UPS driver in there. I love this little brown UPS bear....so cuddly.

bobbie said...

Dragonstar said...

Lovely! What a handsome bear he is. I love getting parcels at any time of year, and I'd love it even more if your bear delivered them!

Thanks for the visit.

Lily Hydrangea said...

this is so cool! You find a bear for everything!

ramblingwoods said...

Cute bear and an interesting post..

Life with Kaishon said...

This was brilliant! I love UPS men! Ever since King of Queens! They rock. And they work so hard. One time I saw a slightly overweight UPS worker with very tight and short shorts. I loved him anyway : ) All UPS workers rock in my book!

I hope we do get the dog. It is really up to my husband though!

Suzanne said...

Such a great post for U especially this time of year. Perhaps a few UPS drivers could use a little cuddly this time of year.

kml said...

krizcpec said...
