Theme Day -- Mailbox



After having problems for years with neighborhood kids vandalizing my mailbox and stealing my mail, I finally gave up and got a post office box. I kind of like it now. My mail is safe and I can throw away all the junk mail I receive before I leave the post office. The first day of the month is Theme Day for the City Daily Photo community.

Perfect post for mailbox theme day! I guess you must keep a mailbox key on your car keychain!

I've always wanted to say my address is a PO Box! I hope your post office isn't too far away though.

That is weird your mail be stolen and the mailbox damaged. This solution is the right one indeed.

Did you have mailbox baseballers? Too bad about the vandalism. I have always sort of wanted a post office box. I like the way those boxes look all lined up!

It's a pity to know about the vandalism in the mail boxes there! I think it's a good option about the office box.

Yes, it is practical, Lois, but where is the adventure and romance?

Tamera said...

I'd be mad too, if people messed with my mail! I'm glad you found the right solution to your problem Lois.

Love the classic look of these boxes. I wonder if your vandals made their way up to Jack's neck of the woods...

We were always worried about our mail when we lived in SE Ocala and the mailbox stood way out at the end of the driveway. Here in Stone Creek they have the locked boxes (each grouping has 12 boxes, I think)...much better. And we can post letters in a special slot knowing they are secure.

Good photo choice! All we have here are PO boxes. I couldn't decide what to do for yesterday so I didn't participate.

Nice reflection shot of the mailboxes. I didn't have time this month to check what the theme was and missed it. I could have probably found an interesting mailbox on my recent travels too.

Charming! That's why I think the British system of having a letter box in your front door so your mail just goes straight into your house is best! And for any vandals who want to put their hand through the letterbox, perhaps a big fierce dog too!
