Funny story

Since I still need to upload some pictures, and Mom and Dad have been busy getting back into a routine after their trip, I will share a funny story instead.

Mom works with this man who has a dog. Mary Gertrude is two parts of different kinds of terrier so she is very cute, fast and a jumper. Well Randy, her dad, has a mail slot in his front door. Mary Gertrude hates the mailman, and the mail even more. When the mail is delivered Mary Gertrude will attack the mail, and shred it as much as possible. To solve this issue, Randy mounted a basket to the door to catch the mail and keep it away from Mary Gertrude. This worked for a while, but she was determined. Now, when she hears the mailman coming, she runs to the door, and as the mail is passed through the slot, she will jump and grab it before it reaches the basket, and shred the mail. Randy now gets his bills digitally...

Yeah, those mail door slots don't work ... he should put a basket on the outside of the door.

Funny story. Same thing happened to Jan's mother's mail. Her 2 little dogs lived for the mail delivery and shredded her mail. Jan put a basket directly under the slot to catch the mail and no more problem. But her mother's mail slot was pretty high up and not all of them are.
