My days of cool mailboxes are definitely over. I get the cheapies and wait 'til they are completely demolished before I put up the new one.
The Husband came up with this groovy idea. The mailbox sits on a post, he added this second post the the side of that one...making sure that it supports the side of the mailbox as well. Any bat-bearing juvenile delinquent that wants to take a swing at the mailbox is going to have one heck of a sore arm if he makes contact with the post, there is just no way the mailbox is going to go flying off the post if it gets smacked.
It's been a few years since I've had to buy a new mailbox...this one looks pretty tired but it sure beats having to fish the mailbox out of the ditch!
Wasn't that a great idea?
This post was inspired by Robert who is hosting a photo challenge this week...yup, another photo challenge. Hey man, I like 'em. The name of the challenge is "Show Me"...today is the mailbox, I think tomorrow is the kitchen.
Uh oh, does that mean I have to clean it?
