I checked the mailbox twice this morning. Once for each walk to the school bus stop.
The last time I checked was around 8:20. The trash had not yet been picked up. Otherwise all was quiet.
I left for yoga at 9:20 and returned at 11:15. I went down to bring up the trash barrel and checked the mailbox--though I saw the mail carrier on my way home, so I did not expect the mail to have been delivered.
And there was the nut.
I hear the mail truck now outside, so will be down to the mailbox again soon.
Why my mailbox and not my neighbors? Why so frequently in the past 6 weeks?
