AIRMAIL

A somewhat stoic figure, this Pelican seemed attentive to my every move. I guess the mailman would simply drop a fish in front of him. While he bends down to pick it up, shove the days posts into the box and take off. A pretty good plan but a lot of fish. On another note, A salute to all our Veterans for their service to our country. Thank you for a job well done.

  3. I agree with your sentiment re. Veterans Day; thanks for mentioning it! Don't you love these unique mailboxes?! Whenever I'm in a rural area, I look for them, esp. around Duluth where there seems to be many local artists with a whimsical flare.

  4. Pelican, pelican, on the post
    Sitting there as only a pelican can;
    Which fishy are you hoping for
    When you see the ol' mailman?

  20. That would be good, a robot version that reaches out and opens its bill as the mail carrier approaches - and then swallows the mail!
