    It finally got here. It was jammed - hard, really hard and almost inextricably - into the mailbox. I wonder what animal interfered with the delivery yesterday. Maybe the mail guy was the animal, if so he showed great safe awareness in filing the report. There goes your deliverer, as Eddie G. would say.

    Looks great, Ed! Your photo really does it justice.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    I get the nobody is home routine too after using a trackinf number and making sure I'm home on delivery scheduled time. They also shove packages into the loading at the rear which cannot be extracted from the front of the mailbox.
    One day you will just be a memory for some people, do your best to make it a good one.

    They must network and share these practices on an international level, even.

    Same thing happened to me once. I was sitting in my garage, smoking my pipe actually, and watching from the window because I knew my package was "out for delivery." Was delivered the next day, after the snow had melted.

    We get that all the time, Anthony. I think they come prepared with the "nobody home" form filled out if the package requires a signature. They don't even try.
