    Good grief. Did someone do that deliberately?

    I think there was an episode of CSI where a couple of characters were out in a car with a baseball bat. The one mailbox, after being destroyed before, this time was full of concrete... so when the whack came...

    It makes you want to be there to see it happen.

    I posted a very long and delayed letter on Saturday! (I started it last January and really should have just sent it in September... It was awaiting some art).

    Wrote my first dip pen letter to a grand daughter, a post hike post my trail journal, and a check to a daughter.

    I'm now 6 out for 6 days. So far I've not received any though. I hope they don't all come together at the end of the month.

    We get it here in Lafayette all the time. People have started building brick covers for them to they don't get bashed by these fellows who drive around knocking them over with their trucks and/or baseball bats.

    Received one letter on Friday. Busy weekend writing and posted out 4, 2 letters to Continental US and 2 overseas.
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    Yesterday I received a Happy New Year postcard (dated 31/12/19) plus a letter dated 28/1/20 both from the US.
    I have also received a letter from a British friend. I'm currently 8 for 11 so have a bit of catching up to do....

    Four letters in today, including one with a nice wax seal (slightly damaged).

    Out - well, just need to seal up and affix postage, for one missive to go off to the NL.

    I ended up putting my updates over on A World of Snail Mail instead, so here is the summing up!

    Successfully wrote and sent 29 letters. 14 were replies, some of them to new people. Reply pile is currently at 5 (7 as of lunchtime!) and I'm expecting a few more incoming.

    I didn't tint any paper this year, but I did make envelopes, draw snails (and a few non-snails) and add a fair number of wax seals. I think I only used stickers on one letter though, was intending to try and use more...

    Argh! Apologies, but work is swamped and my replies have slowed to a crawl.

    Got letters awaiting reply stacked up like planes over La Guardia, as people used to say, including a letter from VertOlive. (See? She really has been getting them out the door. Despair not if needs be you must eagerly await a letter from her Ladyship for yet a while longer.) Am about a third of the way through my reply to the letter on top of the pile.

    Yep! Letters and cards. I even scanned and emailed a postcard image to one Geek who prefers no paper for a while!
