I Hate My Mailbox

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!
