Going Postal

I'm replacing the vacationing rural postal delivery gal this week. What an adventure. Thankfully, the driver knows the route; I just have to put the (correct) mail into the (correct) mailbox and lift the flag. At my peril, I might add. Two mailboxes had bird's nests in them. Several other boxes were filled with ants and earwigs. Yuck.

Interestingly, some of the creatures that were happiest to see us weren't always human.

Sorry, no mail for you today, Bucky!

Love Bucky! It's chilly here in Portland tonight...I'm in fleece in late July. Yikes!

Amazing--you get to have two people deliver mail so that the driver can concentrate on driving while the postmistress can deliver the mail? I wish I lived in a first-world country! Does the job have health benefits? Wait, silly me, the COUNTRY has health benefits. Call me Maple Leaf Envious...
