Lean On Old Mailbox


Our mail box is leaning. It is OLD as is the person who can set it straight. Thus the leaning tower of mail box view  through the bush.

I have nothing else to do but stand on the front porch, peering at it through the bush. The golden glow of the sun on the neighbor fence drew me in...

I think it is leaning due to all the Ads for hearing aids. I wish it came with a bell that rang when REAL mail is deposited. We would never have to go except on days Bob's magazine comes. Maybe 2 dings for mail, 1 ding for magazine.   PLUS a robot arm to pat the mail person on the back IF he/she EVER COMES BEFORE FIVE PM.. Bob calls them the Midnight Mailpersons.

You may remember that our mailbox was leaning and we discovered the previous owner had used old brake pads down in the hole with the post to "steady" it!!! lol We have been very fortunate to have a dependable and courteous mail carrier for the last 2 years!

We get a lot of junk mail, it goes right into the recycle box. Love the golden light! Enjoy your day!

MOL MOL MOL MS you must have a hidden audio in this house.
Recently Dad was working in the yard when 'Not Earl' stopped to hand him our mail. He told Dad the routes were changing. Not Earl has always started at the top of our street. We were the 4th house to get our mail and always between 12 and 1 pm. Now for some reason the USPS changed his route. He comes through the back of our neighborhood up the right side of the street out to the right then to another neighborhood. He then has to go back get the mail for the right side of our 'hood. We are lucky to get it by 5 usually it is after 6.
Hugs Madi and mom

If the mail isn't in our box by 1 PM we think something is wrong.
I would hate to have it come as late as yours does.
It's mostly junk mail too but I have to go through every bit since some important things look like junk at first glance.
Pretty golden light on your Leaner...

Our mail usually comes around 3 pm. The junk mail is never ending. We do however still get paper bills because I would need to know what to pay if something happen to Mark. We have one of those group boxes that the mail man opens up from the back and puts in everyone's mail.

We have an early bird superman for a mailman, but when we have a sub, she stuffs everybody's mail in my box to save her the trouble of sorting it into six boxes. I have the largest box. Maybe someone Important lived in my apartment before me! lol

Ha! Now I'm wondering how to amend Longfellow's "Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" to fit your postal person!

Aside from Tom's RC magazine and our water bill (our little municipality still hasn't joined the world wide web), I've little interest in checking our box. That's a great idea about ringing a bell to signal 'real' mail! Do you suppose the USPS will even still be around in 10 years?

Funny, love this. Your photos are pretty, with the leaves and the light in sharp contrast with each other.

Ours leans too - the ground is so hard and then wet and then hard and then wet. You got the picture.

My mailbox is attached to the house so I might be in trouble if it starts leaning :) 5p.m. is really late to get the mail.

Oh, so you get that hearing aid mail too. My hubby got them every week before he passed. Now they still send them to him and to ME too. My mailbox doesn't lean (it has been replaced twice)...the newspaper tube is what is leaning at my place it is way over 40 years old. Hugs

We have a special super mail box on our street and all have their little cubby assigned with lock and key. We too get mostly junk mail hence we only pick it up on one day a week.
