I walked my middle schooler to his bus this morning. On the way back I checked the mailbox. A nut was sitting there waiting for me! My husband checked the mail yesterday. He claims he did not notice a nut and he doesn't think he would have missed it. But is he right? I did check yesterday morning, so the nut has not been there all weekend. Hmmmmm
As a drove up the street toward home, a squirrel jumped off the mailbox post onto the fence.
Whenever I mention my nuts in the mailbox people always bring up the possibility of squirrels. I don't doubt that a squirrel could open the box, though it would be harder to close, but I cannot imagine that a squirrel would leave just one nut in the same spot each time.
I checked the mailbox on the way back up from the school bus this morning.
But when did it arrive? My husband brought in the mail yesterday. Did he miss the nut? Did I check the mailbox yesterday on the way up from the school bus? I can't remember. Could it have been there since Sunday. Or even Saturday afternoon??
