Tidbits - Part 2

As we all know by now (well, not everyone), postage rates have gone up again. I just love it. Not. Most of my customers who mail out on the route are using either the new 44 cent or the "Forever" stamps. Some, I think, just refuse to and keep using the 42 or even lower denomination stamps. Others just don't quite get it, yet. Ugggh!! And, SURPRISE, their letters and bills actually get where they are going. How's that? Well. I put the extra postage on them. And I suppose there are many, many other rural carriers out there who do the same thing. And I KNOW there are some who won't give up those 2 pennies. Anyway, it's kind of a two-way street--customers utilizing "snail mail" help me keep my job and when I put my 2 cents worth in, their bills get paid on time. ;)

More pictures!!
This pair of ducks was wandering from puddle to puddle having a splashing good time until I pointed my camera at them. As they trudged away, I could hear them muttering under their breath, "wak, wak, wak, it's that crazy mail lady again." Then they turned in unison and gave me the stink eye. Double!!

But I really think the puddle snakes wait and watch for me. They probably tell each other, "No, really, wait right here. Just under this mailbox. You'll get to see the crazy mail lady."

Here is the secret garden! A large patch of beautiful daylillies way off the road - almost hidden from my flower radar.
