If I only posted when something exciting happened down here in what is quickly becoming "wickedly hot Davie," I'd never post, that's for sure! I usually have something "quilty" to show though ... but today I have absolutely nothing in that arena either, soooooo you get this ..............

Our poor pitiful mailbox! Exciting, don'tcha think (LOL). It's a sorry looking thing, I know; but that's cuz it's been hit and knocked down more times than I can count. I'm not quite sure why either cuz I've never hit it ... not even once! Gene was the first offender bringing it to the ground before we even bought the house 19 years ago and again shortly after we moved in. Since then, I can't tell you how many times I've opened up the front door to this exact same view. It's the sorriest looking mailbox in the neighborhood too, but we learned a long time ago it simply wasn't worth replacing, so we just continued to stand it up time and time again. This time, however, the poor dilapidated thing finally bit the dust ... and for the biggest news yet, this time the lady who knocked it down actually knocked on our door to tell us she knocked it down; and she even put a new pole on our front porch the next morning, renewing my faith in my fellow man :)

Oh and I've got this too ... Dolly in her purple bow! Well shoot, Blogger isn't cooperating and won't allow me to upload any more pictures, so you'll just have to wait and see her cute self another day :)

  1. Poor mailbox! How nice the lady left a new pole. I know Dolly is adorable in her purple bow!

  2. That's awesome that the lady brought you a new pole! We live on a 90 degree turn and many people have hit our mailbox in just the 6 years we've lived in our house. We finally moved it to the other side of the driveway and so far so good!

  3. Sorry about the rough luck with the mailbox. I just want you to know that I really appreciate your encouraging words on Lydia's blog and your prayers for us. You have have heart rending trials of your own with your daughter. This life sure is a trial of our faith.
    P.S. Your quilts are beautiful!!!
