Can you guess what this is? Yes, the big green box is the mail box; all of us in the village have one. What we don't all have is the long, gray cylinder that's attached to it. If you saw this in Iowa, you'd guess it was for the newspaper. Rural newspaper delivery is/was common there, and people have similar receptacles to keep their paper out of the rain and snow. But this receptacle attached to Josie and Patrick's mailbox is not for the newspaper....it's for their daily baguette delivered fresh every morning from the bakery in Cajarc! I think it must be Patrick's invention...he's very handy that way. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled to see if anyone else in the village has such a handy device to receive their daily bread. I'll bet you don't get your daily bread in such an inventive way!
