You’ll remember our mailbox looked like this a few weeks ago, following a driving mishap by one of our neighbors.
Here’s how it looks now, after the installation of a new post and a spanking new mailbox, which Basil affixed yesterday. The thing on the top is a solar light — a nice addition that I’m sure will come in handy, especially when the Halloween revelers come calling.
As soon as dusk falls every night, Basil is at the front door, hollering, “My light is on.”
(It’s quite obviously time for him to find work.)
As for why he bought a white mailbox to replace the hunter-green one chosen long ago to match our shutters, he said he was trying to match the gutters.
Then he added: “And so you can see it when you’re driving down the street.”
Hard to argue with that logic.
