    Good grief. Did someone do that deliberately?
    Given that the other house in the photo got the same treatment, Im led to picture baseball bat deployed from a pickup truck...

    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...

    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.
