We’re near the end of building a house and got an “official” address a few weeks ago so we put up a new mailbox beside the current farmhouse mailbox. I had a goofy little tingly joy when we put it up. Chris stenciled the address in a nice green. New house – new mailbox – gotta feel good right? Then last week we replaced the farmhouse mailbox because it had taken a few batterings from random baseball bats over the years and the door no longer opened all the way. The mail carrier left us a really sweet thank you. Well – it’s a USPS notice but was signed in blue ink by a real person.

This afternoon Paul, Chris’s dad, called to tell us that both of our new mailboxes had been beaten to a pulp this weekend. Ours was in pieces. The posts were completely out of the ground and a beer bottle lay beside them.

When we installed the new box I had the poor humor to laugh and say that it should last until Spring Break. It’s not so funny now.

I just don’t get this type of “fun”. If you read my 25 Random Facts – just refer to #2.

I guess Tuesday we’ll find out what might have been lost, if anything. There were two things I was expecting. My Anniversary Issue of Wild Fibers…


…and my new Debit Card from the bank..


Fortunately I had been saving a bar of Dagoba New Moon dark chocolate that Hillarey had slipped in my Giftmas stocking. Two pieces of that have taken off the edge.

little jerks.

  1. I’d be so tempted to rig my mailboxes with explosives that would spray buckshot (okay, rock salt – or perhaps screaming pink paint) whenever they were struck with force.Little Bastards…..
