Third Time's The Charm

First, the guy who delivered the lumber for the side porch.

Second, a firefighter friend.

Third, the mailman who politely mentioned it.

So now I have a house number.  Yes, I did use my kindergarten skills to trace around the house numbers Steve removed from the now-demolished front porch.  I used a ball-point pen.  The whole process, including the scribbly coloring-in, took about two minutes.

It ain't beautiful, but it serves the purpose.

  1. This is so freaky. Have you ever noticed that we post around the same time? Even though I am retired, I'll always be a third shifter at heart. I just posted about a tree that we had cut down and I swear to god I used the phrase...third time was a charm. Then I come here and it says Third Time's a Charm.

  2. It amazes me how the Post Office, which delivers mail 99.999% of the time without fail, keels over when a house number is temporarily missing :-) I'm pretty sure we don't have twenty different letter carriers on this route.

    1. USPS does a hell of a job but I agree. I even used a paint pencil to write my address on the inside of the mailbox door. Now if I could just keep the snowplow from blasting the door off my mailbox.

    2. A plow took out about six mailboxes on my street last winter. I don't know how it did that. It's not like the snow was high enough to hide them. Mine is still precariously attached, because I haven't had the moral fiber and flexible spine to get underneath and see what's broken.
