Duct tape is our friend

Recently some vehicle whacked our mailbox and knocked it off its post. The post was intact, but the base of the mailbox was badly cracked, though not completely in two pieces. Since we discovered this a couple hours before the mail was due, we decided to try putting it back together with duct tape--or duck tape--as I learned not long ago and mentioned here. It worked and gave us time to go out and buy a new mailbox; however, the new one is much smaller than the old one so we still haven't replaced it. (We taped the mailbox base together and then taped it to the post.)
