Hey Mrs Postie,Look at Me!!!!!!!

Being a bush postie is wonderful, life's wonders abound and I just love my job,lately it has been a heavy load with health being an absolute nuisance but you know there is always something to make me smile.
Sometimes I see no one for days in my two and a half hours each day ,other days I see Mr Miles (my favourite) he is 83 and recently widowed so he has had a little cry to me and now in his healing time is always ready with a joke,he often gives me fresh vegies and if I make jam he is the first to get a jar.
As usual I am off track lol...The mail boxes are many and varied from old milk cans to boxes,tin miniature huts,one is a hollow log on a pile of rocks lol this is because every time they have put their box up the horses have a good scratch and knock it over,at last they seem to have found  something to trick them.
Anyway on Monday Mr Kilmore surprised me this this beauty,he had put it up over the weekend,his old mail box was a plastic 4 litre container with a hole cut in the side..Now just look at this beauty..


This is an old pie oven with sliding doors, he has put a tin roof and it even has a solar light in it so they can see the driveway at night,a little pot of cactus and 2 little frogs to greet me...Mr Kilmore you made my day!

  5. My Dad was resourceful like that and would charm us with his "inventions". My Mum had 40 years of it and would just roll her eyes, but was secretly rather proud.
