    I live in a near-100-year old, 2-story ranch house with no heat and no insulation in the walls.

    What you are seeing here is me in winter going downstairs to use the bathroom, minus my slippers. I usually sit on the toilet seat for a minute first to pre-warm it before dropping my pants. Too cold otherwise.

    Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds. Didn’t realize that started so early.

    I was a city carrier, and we went snow, freezing, rain, downpour. We walked it

    I’d not worry about the mail. Stone slabs aren’t going anywhere.

    We used to get mail at our door, and buy stamps for pennies; now stamps are over a dollar, and we walk a mile to a cluster of P.O. boxes.

    Our mailbox is at the end of our nearly 300 foot long driveway. It’s not the mail that’s the issue: it’s the trash cans.

    300 feet is 0.05 miles, so a round trip is 0.1 miles. Do this 50 times a year and that’s 5 miles. Do this for over 20 years and it’s more than 100 miles that I’ve dragged the trash can.

    On the other hand, I do get my exercise getting the mail.

    The mailbox has to be by the road. Maybe the house needs to be closer to the road.

    We used to have the mailbox just outside the front door. Though normally the box should be by the road, for the elderly, it can be mounted by the front door. I’m getting that age, now. I may need to get out the old mailbox and reattach it to the porch post.

    The Dillards tell the story of growing up in the Ozarks with an outhouse: “In the winter, it’s about 100 yards too far. But in the summer, it’s about 100 yards too near.”

    My mailbox is 1.25 miles from the house down a dirt road. I don’t drive, so I have to walk to the mailbox. The mail carrier doesn’t even try to deliver packages to the house. I have to pick them up at the post office.

    They have been talking about eliminating Saturday service to save money for some time but I haven’t seen it happen. Generally, I only need to get my mail once a week to pay bills

    Looks like me today when I went to get the mail, except I was wearing boots. And since the ground was covered in sleet, I had to hold on to the fence that runs alongside the dirt road that goes down to the mailbox. I hate winter.

    The comments above mentioned the likelihood of mis-delivery of mail. I can see the problem.

    Example: My surname contains five letters. Our address is simple – a number and one word. My mail usually ends up with at a nearby house with the same house number but on a street name with 3 words. The resident’s name has 14 letters.

    So you see, it’s a matter of confusing two addresses where the resident names and street names are so similar that a mistake is easy.

    Simple . . . er . . . um . . . ah . . . see?

    The fact that cavemen here have jackets with buttons, knitted caps and scarves is pretty impressive.
