I think we need a little down time. We are taking a week off of work and getting out of town. We found beach houses for a really good deal and will rent one of them. We really love to go to the gulf coast and enjoy the pristine beaches there. It is peaceful and the people are really nice as well.
Well the problems that I was having with whomever was destroying my mailbox almost daily has ended but it had interesting effects on my neighbors. Now they all want whitehall mailboxes like mine. I actually find that a little humorous considering. The new topic of the neighborhood BBQ’s has become residential mailboxes. I could almost thank the person responsible had they not cost me so much money in such a short period of time. However, now that it has stopped, it is still the talk of the neighborhood.
That doesn’t really bother me though, because it has helped to spur my neighbors into doing a little sprucing up of their own houses, and right now mailboxes are on the top of the list. Whatever works is what I always say, so I am content at the moment. I am helping the little old lady down the street with hers. She is on a fixed income and I try to help her with any repairs she needs on her house. She expressed a liking for our new mailbox, so I decided to gift her with one. I will put it in at night so she can be surprised when she goes out the next day to check the mail.
