I finally fixed my mailbox today. I had a time of it, broke two brand new drill bits but I got it to work. I used a hook I bought in New Mexico and put it on upside down. I think it will work just fine.
the pups and I took a nice long walk at the Park again today. it was cold but we enjoyed it. I fixed this mail box and then set about cleaning the office. people have been wonderful about saving me boxes lately and I needed to organize them. ta da! it has been a good weekend.
