Hurrah for the mailman! Looks like he has a nice stroll through the woods as a part of his route so Bea’s tree might be further from the houses than we thought yesterday. Might take longer to get a ladder than we hoped.
An up and down battle, reminds me of Shirins and Nushi. See

A little yellow starting in NEIowa. Our peak used to be mid Oct but each year is different lately.
So glad it wasn’t worse!
As long as postage has been paid the postal service will deliver, but just random dudes supporting a candidate are not allowed to put the flyers in your official mailbox. Those get stuck into door frames or left on door mats or sometimes like post it notes are stuck to your door.
Two years ago in early spring, we had an ice flood which tore up the road along our river. Luckily we have another exit road and a day later we got out that way. We tried to come back the river road as we knew it was being fixed but the road repair guys said no. So several days later we went back into town to pick up mail we assumed would be at the post office. Much to our surprise, we were told that our intrepid mailwoman had made it to our mailbox. So we tried it ourselves and even with 4 wheel drive it was an adventure. Intrepid was too meager a word for her.
Hmmm, not actually explained in the missing people arc. I think we all assumed they are part of his armor. When the thimbles were lost and returned by Baba we saw his paws which looked OK but he was very happy to have his thimbles back.
Also other folk like repair guys. My MIL was walking for exercise in her garage one day and fell, letting go of her walker which rolled into the street. A passing repair driver on the way to a call saw the walker, stopped and got out, looked around and spotted her. He carried the walker back, called her son at her request and waited with her until he arrived. No need to call the EMTs but her son knew how to pick her up safely. So kudos to all doers of good deeds!
And a news story a day or so ago about a young man who chased down a car that was on fire and dragged a woman and thee young children out of it just before it blew.
There really are heroes among us.
Any rain in the forecast to help alleviate the fire and smoke? Wishing you all relief soon.
