Re: Mailbox


O.K. that should work.
    My daughter who is a artist offered to paint a large rock , but it never
happened because we didn't have a rock big and heavy enough not to be taken.
We get a large number of destructive juveniles coming through and it's not
worth her time to spend hours on a rock and have it vanish.  It's a sad
commentary on society in general.
