    Still have our hitching post in front....The final nail in the coffin of the Pony Express was completion of the transcontinental telegraph.

    If your paper ends up on the roof, what is your solution for retrieving it?

    T,
    BTDT2 may remember the early days of mail delivery....
    T are you pulling my leg? Not everyone from California fell off an apricot cart….

    Are you suggesting mail carriers actually park their delivery truck, walk up to a house and deliver mail?

    Or is this a myth like take home marked vehicles or using the rhizome of the ginger plant to relieve symptoms of gas, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.

    T is time for you to post a WTF experience. If not, when Nola returns from her sabbatical you’re gonna have a lot of splainin' to do!

    I don't know 10 days or less is a stretch. I gotta stop for coffee along the way and there is definitely no 4g on the frontier. Moral of the story is I would be terrible in the olden days.

    In between frequent naps, it’s part of daily my routine. I start the day searching for my morning newspaper, more often than not, I find it on my roof or under my truck. Around mid day I check my curbside mailbox for a priority flat rate package from PR. If it’s not raining I meet with other retirees at a local park, feed pigeons, tell war stories of LE golden age and take turns following a Park Ranger(oops wrong thread).
    So you are the old guy who yelled at me for scaring away all the birds when I was a kid! You old folks sure do love park sitting.

    OH jeez. I'm so out of it, of course you meant a mailbox.. We use a mail slot not mailboxes, although I have seen them in the suburbs.

    T,
    It's not uncommon to receive paper mail that has been placed in a box( outside the home) by a human who works for the United States Postal Service......Now, sometimes the mail is torn or squished into various shapes( usually a ball) and sometimes your package is thrown in your driveway or dropped on the road in front of your house.

    Congrats...I think.

    Word of caution: Wear lots of sunscreen while tricycling in the desert. And be careful not to land a** first on a cactus. That's the Arizona version of Iowa's corncobs. And order extra t-towels from PR723 cause your nuts are gonna be extra sweaty...

    Well, he IS from the Bay area...so I'm sure there's all sorts of stuff they refer to as "magic feathers"...
