  1. Not sure what we’re supposed to be looking at here, but I’ve composed several possible titles, regardless:

    “The holidays are over. Deal with it.”

    “The postbox always rusts twice.”

    “Acid rain is no joke.”

  2. “Just because you’re handling your holiday fireworks safely, doesn’t mean you won’t accidentally burn down somebody’s mailbox across the street.”

    1. You nailed it, Gal. As near as I can guess, fireworks shot off across the street from my house landed on my mailbox, burned the holiday greenery and ribbon to a crisp, and melted the paint off part of the mailbox.

        1. Distressing is right. A few days past July 4th some years ago, I found several burned-out rockets in my backyard and one ON THE ROOF OF MY HOUSE. I try to be a tolerant and patient neighbor, but the fireworks holidays give me a fair case of the homeowner heebie jeebies.

        1. When my neighbors saw it they told me a story about having some work done on a leak in their roof. The contractor told them they found *bullet holes* in the spot he patched. SCARY.

      1. When I was in high school a bottle rocket caught pine straw on our roof on fire. Luckily a neighbor saw it immediately and we put it out with the garden hose.
