Not Feeling very Ho Ho Ho…

At least yesterday I wasn’t.  I had Christmas shopping to do (and I hate to shop), and it was a gloomy, cloudy day.  There was a thin layer of ice on the ground from freezing rain a few days ago.  To make matters worse, someone hit our mailbox and pretty much destroyed it.  Whatever hit it whacked it good.  It would have done some damage to a car, but maybe not to a truck.

It pulled our neighbor’s mailbox completely out of the ground, but he was able to stick the post back in the ground and prop it up.

Pat got a mailbox as a retirement gift a few years ago.  Yesterday the last thing I wanted to do was to mess around with the mailbox.  But I got it done.  Just in time as it turned out, because it snowed last night.

Pat used to work for the state in school bus transportation.  It is a cute mailbox–I hope this one does not get damaged.
