Road Trip

I'm heading up to Ichetucknee Springs for a camping trip this weekend. I'll be bringing my camera along. Rural areas always seem to have real gems, so hopefully I'll find a giant home-made alligator mailbox and more for next week.

This morning I stopped by DD, grabbed an iced coffee to sip on while I prowled the streets in search of my latest victims. Here they are in the order they were captured:

It's original (I haven't seen it before anyway), fairly vandal proof, I'd bet. They painted it the same color as the house, which is an "A" frame home. Hey... I get it.







I'll just keep this one short. I'm sure the mail carrier isn't really happy about this. He'll be forwarding you his chiropractic bill.





What is this? Looks like it belongs on a wall rather than a post. They have to have a key to unlock that box every day when they get their mail. I know I'd lose the key. And don't tell me I could put the key on my keyring. I lose them all the time too. So I wouldn't be able to drive my car or get my mail.








What's the opposite of "keeping up with the Joneses"?



Because I stopped to take this picture and then barely got going again before I had to take the next one, three doors down. It's another Creative Solution!














Needs more duct tape!

The ugly mailboxes should undergo a re-paint to restore its condition before. Older people still prefer to used this kind of mailing method rather than email or cellphone texting so you can design and renovate your boxes to make it look great.
