Referral of the Day

Someone found my blog this morning by typing this search term into

we have just moved to a rural area what is the red flag on the mailbox for?

As usual, they found my blog because all those words appeared in unrelated posts on the same day — not because I actually answered this question.

I am at a complete loss to explain how someone could live in the U.S. long enough to learn English, and yet not know what the red flag on a mailbox is for.

Or is this just the “country boy” in me? Is this really an obscure fact, only known to gun-toting hayseeds?

    Your comment about living in the US long enough to learn english is strange.The person could very well have been born in the US to good ole American parents living in either the city or the suburbs and not had a mail box with a red flag. But I agree with your sentiment, even before I had a mail box with a red flag, I knew what it was for.
