an assist

I put three little pumpkins on the mailbox. The wind must've grabbed a leaf off the lawn and stuck it in the handle. I've been Martha'd by Mother Nature.

If she could upgrade those ugly house numbers, that'd be a Good Thing. I swore I'd do that right away when we bought the place. 17 years ago.

p.s. file under: There's A Website for Everything, subfolder: lose 30 minutes browsing house numbers here

pps If you haven't already entered, the giveaway for Harry Potter on audio book is till open, on yesterday's post.

LaMar was mulling over websites for Jerusalem and Bethlehem, (as he will be next month) and exclaimed, "Ugh! How can every site be claimed a miracle?! How about great engineering and architecture?!"
I must admit when I saw the leaf, I thought "How can she call the leaf on the mailbox a Martha'd moment, it's a miracle!"

Martha'd by mother nature - good one. And I WILL NOT look at the site for house numbers. i had ugly numbers too, and spent fruitless hours in hardware stores, only to end up with something less ugly but not great. Purchased to preserve domestic harmony.

Hey, Gail. I saw the bit about you on!

Hah! Excellent photo! Love the contrasting colors!

I don't mind the house numbers that much. The current ones do the job. You wouldn't want to emulate Martha tooooo much, would you?

Haven't checked the house number website yet. I'm looking for neon or some sort of light behind the house numbers for my little casita!
