Mail Key Debacle - Jan. 3, 2013

Sienna loves mail.  She's a pen pal with several people.  She loves to get the mail, she loves to put mail in the mailbox.  Somehow she lost the mail key one day, she had it in her hand with a stack of mail to be mailed, and then it was gone before she could open our mailbox.  It was concluded that she accidentally "mailed" the mail key.  After about a week of no mail, I called the post office who said it would be $50 to change the locks.  Sienna spent the next two days parked on this chair in front of the house waiting for the mailman (woman) to come so we could ask her to look for the key with the outgoing mail.  Sienna finally caught her on the 2nd day but she wouldn't help Sienna, told her we would have to come with ID, of course I was gone for precisely the 5 minutes I was needed.  So the next day I ran down there when we saw her, and sure enough, the mail key was there.  $50 fine averted.  There was  A LOT of mail after 10 days of not getting it! The fun part was we got a new pile of Christmas cards, so that was awesome.
