mailbox, before & after





























Bit by bit, I'm redoing things around my house. A couple of weekends ago I redid the flower bed around the mailbox, using bricks that I'd saved from when the pool was taken out to build the new flowerbed border. I also lightly sanded and then stained the post and box, and as we've had a fair amount of rain in the past weeks, complete with thunderstorms, the grass is starting to green up nicely. I've read that lightning releases nitrogen into the soil. I need a new lawn mower, though.

More remodeling to follow...

Very nice masonry work. And re: the east texas post. Thanks. As a southerner who has never been to Cado, I can still imagine being near the lake late on a sweltering August afternoon, the air not moving, glistening with sweat, the frogs singing, mosquitoes the size of stealth bombers and the possibility some primitive aquatic beast might slither out of the ooze.
