That's when I noticed that those pesky blackberry vines were really getting obnoxious, coming across the top of the mailbox. I didn't want either the letter carrier or the newspaper carrier to get scratched, so I tossed a pair of clippers in my glovebox, intending to whack those branches back on my way home. But as I started to reach for the paper so I could start whacking, I suddenly realized that those prickly branches were actually HOLDING the paper onto the top of the mailbox! Without the sticker-bushes, the paper would fall off! I returned to my car, tossed the clippers back in the glovebox, and grabbed my camera instead. That's when I thought "Hmmm....Redneck Newspaper Holder...."
A few days later, they installed a REAL paper box...and I found myself being sad that the "Redneck Newspaper Holder" was no longer being used :-( Well, I guess I'd better grab those clippers and get back to whacking away at the current crop before the mailbox disappears entirely!
