Edit: this post is old (from the Summer) and I am just now posting it.
Yep it finally happened. It falleth over.
When we bought the house in March we noticed that the mail box was really tipsy. No no no. Not that kind of tipsy. Hehehe. How could a mailbox drink? Well anyway… Whenever we would close the lid the mailbox would lean really far back. We both thought “Greeeaaattt, now we need to dig a big hole and put this in deeper.”. The pole was actually rusted clear through. There was just a little part that was still attached and being in the ground was holding it together. I am sure I made it worse when I pushed it waaaay back to see what was wrong and how far it would go back.
I told Nathan that we had to fix this ASAP. There is no way that either of us wants to try to dig a hole in the middle of Winter. I had just mentioned how we needed to make a trip to Lowe’s for this. Saturday Nathan went out to get the mail, shut the door and then it happened. The mail box “Fell down go BOOM”!! OK maybe not really boom. Maybe more like “ting”. I was out in the garage and I witnessed the whole thing go “down”. Nathan just stood there motionless and in shock. He yells to me “All I did was touch it with one finger!! ONE FINGER!!! That’s all it took!” Hahahahaha. Off to Lowe’s we went. It was either that or the Mailbox goes on the grass until we get a pole. We had a neighbor do that once and the mailman just threw his mail on the grass.
We got a wooden fence post to put in the ground. He did most of this work and I took pictures. I have terrible aim and I would probably end up breaking something or hitting Nathan. I did help dig a little though.
This picture is funny so I couldn’t resist posting it. I am sure he is saying “STOP TAKING MY PICTURE AND GO AWAY!!!“
There we have it. A nice new post. And yes…. I just did a whole post about a mailbox.
