I killed The Mailbox

Yesterday my local market was advertising
chicken thighs and legs for .69 a pound and pork roast for $1.68 a pound,
both great prices so I was all over it.
Steve and I headed into town to take advantage.
We made it to the store, loaded up on the deals and
proceded to the checkout.

No checkbook, no ATM card, no cash.

I explain the circumstances to the clerk and ask,
 "can you wheel our cart into the cooler till we get back"?
"No problem she says".

We get back home and hubby says
"just pull in the drive and I'll walk to the house so we don't have to open the gate".

10 minutes later...
Checkbook in hand, he hops back into the truck and I back out.

Let me just say,
I've never backed out of the driveway before.
Seems there's a mailbox right behind the driveway!
I know it only brings bills but let's have a little respect!

So what we ended up with was,
what should have been a 24 mile drive turned into
a 48 mile drive and one dead mailbox!
I guess we paid a little more for the "deals" than we expected.

Till next time, be kind to your mailbox,

Oh my God!!! I FINALLY have been able to see your blog! I cannot tell you how many months I've been trying to visit you but have been hit with all kinds of errors (I blame my archaic computer). So hi. :)

Oh my! Well let me just tell you.... your not the only one who knocked over a mailbox this week! My father in law did the same thing yesterday only he used the lawnmower instead of the car.

At least it didn't snap in two pieces!
Hope you have a better week!
