I don't think the mailman likes the new arrangement much, but he'll get over it.
My friends who live in warmer parts of the country might not understand how I can get so excited by green grass and some early spring flowers, but let me tell you: spring in New England can break your heart. It can be cold and rainy well into June. Western Rhode Island woke up to a sprinkling of snow this past Sunday. Snow! In April -- and no, this is not a belated April Fool's joke.
Thank goodness I live in an area that tends to be a little more temperate than other parts of the state. If I'd awakened to snow on Sunday morning, I'd have been cranky indeed. And none of us want that.
