Picture of the Day
January 13, 2024

spacer hard freeze after days of heavy rain leaves the road treacherous and glazed. no one out and about, i wondered if the mail would be delivered but our intrepid carrier came through--mostly. when i walked out to the box what i found confused me: a copy of The Globe, a supermarket tabloid. at first i thought it might be a promotion, but a closer look revealed it was addressed to a neighbor further up the road. we're the penultimate stop on the route and i guess the driver figured that was close enough. i hadn't pegged Bill as a reader of gossip rags, but i know he has a soft spot for rom-coms so this wasn't completely out of character. i baby-stepped the 100 yards to his mailbox and dropped it off, fingers numb with cold.
