I got an idea, how about I turn my package mailbox into a egg stand, seriously. Put eggs in it and tell them to drop the money off in the mailbox that's a locked.
I like it! Unless they get out cutting torch, all you will loose is eggs you stocked that day to a robber. That's always my worry about a honor system stand.

Out here, they don't deliver packages up here, they drop them off at the mailbox whether they fit or not, you have a package box or not and no one touches them. Break into a mailbox and that's a felony for starters, is it worth the 5, 10 or 15 bucks in there? If so, do me favor and smile for the camera so I can have a mug shot to shoot at later for target practice, don't worry the local sheriff will get them one too.

We're not that far out, though far enough to not have to deal with the crazies --- except when they decide to come up and mailbox smash. Sad, but true, nothing happens to them even red handed (or boxed ;) ) - any packages here don't get delivered you get a pick up slip and have to trek to the PO. Mailbox is a mile away, PO 10 miles of very cury roads. Yeah - it's a leftist almost commie state. o_O
Though - there are a few honor veggie stands and a neighbor puts veggie and citrus in a "free" share basket (but then we're all a ways down a very potholed dirt road.

Mess with this box as such and I got somewhere down the main road that I know someone would love to watch it. Good friend of ours that lives about 10 miles from me I can put it by his house and Pooch's brother can watch it too. Yes Pooch has a brother out here as they went and got one too.

Coffee is ready! Going to dump a bucket or two of dirt in front yard to make pad for chicken tractor. Won’t be able to move it to fresh grass, but if it rains, which it will, the dirty birdies won’t be standing in water. I’ll just pack it with pine shavings and do the best I can for them. That comes first. Dirty birdies come off the porch today.

Coffee your my only hope! Today is going to SUCK! We were up to 1 am last night and have Purim carnival at 10am.

Last night at 6pm Cassandra comes running into house screaming and asking if her eyeball is popped. She and Dominic were having fun digging holes in the yard. He was pulling hard on a root and it snapped. Trowel popped up and got Cassandra in the eye. 😱
Queue mass scrambled to get Grandpa on way for boys and Cassandra to Cook's Children. It's never good to get Red triage tag and immediate attention.

6hours later: Qualified good news. The blood was from scraps on inner eyelid and white part of eyeball. Cornea not scratched, iris intact. Get to submission pin and put in burning eye drops 4/day. Eye doctor followup on Monday.

No circus here, just going to take it easy after working hard getting the bacon seeds planted to where hey don't sprout and take off. Had little scare this morning, went looking for them and they were nowhere to be found, fence is still online. So I shook their food can, called out for them and a head popped up out the hay bale I tossed in, all ten were buried in the hay, so cute.
So for my relaxation today I'm fueling up the excavator, going to trundle about mile to my southern lowest in elevation property and start prospecting for water like it's gold. According to well logs, nearest property to same elevation hit water at 10', I might need to go 30'. Seriously it is relaxing, not on deadline of sorts, just digging, this is going to be fun.

Love the bacon seeds in the hay. HA -- out on the excavator - definitely a relaxing thing - like me on the tractor. But 10-30' for water - sweet. A lot deeper here with luck. Neighboring avo farmer is drilling out his - the last owner dropped the pump o_O they've been working on it for 5 days now to get it out - and yeah a new pumpto go in of course.
PS -- you remind me of the guys on Gold Rush.
