ey there. I hate my mailbox. It's a crummy, old thing that is dangling from my door by a wire frame. Don't believe me? Look...
|Not very attractive|
|Yup... Held to the door by a metal wire|
See. I just don't like it. I think it's lazy and a little on the hideous side. I guess that doesn't speak very highly of me, huh. lol Anyways, I've been thinking of getting a new mailbox. Maybe something a little more fancy, but definitely something a little more detached from the door. lol I've seen a few mailboxes that sit on posts that look pretty cool. My only problem with that is that I don't have a fence and it would be pretty funny looking to see mailbox posts around the neighborhood and not have a fence nearby.
It's funny, actually, how you don't give it any thought when you buy a home. You start thinking of changing some things around in your back yard, inside the house, and what not, but you never give your mailbox any thought. I guess because it's just a box for mail and you figure that you'll give it a second thought at a later date. But then that keeps getting pushed back because of many other projects around the house. I know that I am definitely guilty of that.
Next time you are driving by your neighborhood, take a look at the many styles of residential mailboxes that adorn your neighbors yards. You'll be surprised at how many seem ignored by the owner. I know I've ignored mine for far too long and I think it's time for an upgrade. What do you think? Is it worthwhile to have a mail box that suits the style of the family? Later!
