EDM 73 - A mailbox
I LOVE finding goodies in my mailbox!! And I find myself ordering books, CDs, food items, and the like just for the luxurious SURPRISE of finding something beside bills in my mailbox.
This is my DREAM mailbox! What I WISH my real mailbox looked like. I have a HUGE BLACK box that my dear husband painted our house numbers on -- and it sits on our gravel road collecting heat and dust ... the ground around it is compacted into granite and because it sits on the highest side of the drainage area that runs the length of our entire road, there isn't sufficient room to even THINK about a the luxury of a mailbox garden.
So this is what I WISH my mailbox looked like.
I have to admit, though, when the mailman dropped me a polite "Please get a Bigger BOX' letter to accommodate all my anticipated mailbox goodies, it took me five months to find one that would sit on its wooden post without falling over from the weight! LOL
