Little Crow and the Mailbox.....

This time of year in Nod is bleak and unforgiving.

If you let it, the endless sea of white and sameness can eat you up and swallow you whole.




It can make you crazy....convince you that things are there which are really not....






And, sometimes, make things that were there....

disappear.....


Or, at least, that's what I'm told.....

UGH! I am so ready for spring and it's not nearly as "white" in northern Ohio.

Thanks for sharing Robin

Uh oh! Mailbox bit the dust! We were lucky last year--the snowplow hit it and the city replaces them. Thing is, when they dug it out, it was apparently hanging on by a thread! New deluxe post and THEIR labor! Woo hoo! Hope little crow ...and his ride...are OK. --Jan

I was driving behind a herd of turkey's running down the road just today Robin. They are so funny when they waddle-run. Couldn't hop up over the high snowbanks, so they just kept running down the middle of the road. Our mailbox is leaning, but at least we can find it. Such a magical time of year. ~*~Lisa

Kim said...

LOL. I always used to blame "I dunno" and Mom always said she would like to meet this mystery friend ;)

frontporchprims said...

So, either the plow hit it or something else got stuck and you hacked it out. I am sorry about the box. A sea of whit is right. Turn around long enough and you won't know what's up from down:) I love the new header on your blog. I was wondering if all the vintage photographs were your own. Hopin all is well in Nod. Feburary is almost donea and I hope you keep hanging on until it's over. -Steph-
