I think a row of mailboxes...out in the country...makes a much nicer picture than a green community lockbox.
In our part of the country...we still have our mail delivered to our rural mailbox on a daily basis. I spotted the mailman dropping off the neighbour's mail yesterday...and went to the road to have a little chat with him.
I wondered if he had any explanation as to why we would have empty envelopes in our mailbox...obviously ripped open and the contents removed. He had no idea! I was still pondering the empty envelope dilemma...when a nice lady from several miles away called to tell me she found some of our mail lying beside the road next to her house. Off I went to gather the remains.
Hubby almost missed out on a handmade birthday card...sent from Manitoba. Someone was obviously not as impressed with Kathy's cards as we are! As for the rest of the pile...empty envelopes.
Though I like to photograph rows of mailboxes...I'm wondering whether rural mail delivery is a safe option in this day and age. I'm also wondering what happened to the pile of outgoing mail that I placed in the mailbox yesterday morning. Time will tell!
We may just have a rural mailbox with a lock...in the very near future. Some things really were better in the olden days!
Have a great day...and may you find a treat in your mailbox!
