When I prepare each day's blog entry, I click on a box that says "New Post." Well, today's new post is about a new post.
Since we moved to the Boggy Thicket, our mailbox has sat atop a pipe - actually a galvanized fence post - that was set in concrete. After forty years, it is time to replace it.
It is breaking off at ground level - still standing, but very wobbly - likely to go at any time. I almost expect opening the mailbox door to pull it over.
I purchased a replacement (and a new mailbox) yesterday at Home Depot. This time, I'm going for a treated wood post.
My project for today is to get it installed.
