2437 East Beverly Drive

This is the third of three mailboxes in this corner of Beverly near Tucson Boulevard. Last week's entry, the second of three, showed the same style as this box: two posts with cut-out designs in between.

I passed through this part of the block on February 23rd.

2431 East Beverly Drive

Here's the second of three mailboxes in this corner of a block near Tucson Boulevard. Last week's entry showed a mailbox across the street with the same kind of design: cutouts between two posts.

I found this bunch of boxes on February 23rd.

2432(?) East Beverly Drive

Neither the house nor the mailbox seemed to have the house number. It's the house across the street from 2431. Google Maps says the number is 2432.

There are a lot of mailboxes around town with cut-out metal figures between two posts. But each one has seemed to have different figures. (If you know why this is, please leave a comment below. You can remain anonymous.) This is the first of three in this part of the block.

I was there on February 23rd.

2638 East 21st Street

A handsome but mostly standard-looking mailbox, right? Well, here's the other side:

The flag covers the “8” in the house number. So they've added a second “8” on top of the flag. In all my years of finding mailboxes, I've never seen that obvious trick.

I rolled by (I'm finally back on my dusty bicycle!) February 23rd.

2227 East Kleindale Road

On February 13th, David Aber sent this (almost standard-looking!) mailbox. What makes it unique is a chimney of what looks like real pebbles.

4520 East Glenn Street

Here's a weathered mailbox with red chiles hanging between its two posts. (I grew up in New Mexico, so: Yum!)

I found it on February 10th.

3333 North Silverbell Road

Just by chance, the previous mailbox — which I found on October 22nd (2017) — had rabbits on top and bottom. This one is topped with bighorn sheep (on top of bighorn sheep…) and has a saguaro along the post:

At the left-hand edge of the photo above is the house number in what looks a plate of steel cut with a welding torch:

I found this surprise two hours after the first one.

2991 West Basil Place

Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits…

OK: I'll resist saying — with my punny (or worse) humor — that I “hopped by” on October 22, 2017. (Whoops, too late! :)

4319 East Flower Street

Although these probably aren't the most beautiful mailboxes on Flower Street, they do have a nice floral-type design on the post…

I found them on August 30, 2017.

6562 East Calle Dened

David Aber insists that he doesn't go “fishing for” creative mailboxes and only takes photos when he happens to spot one.

Well, Dave, I think that may be a fish story. :) How do you come up with ones like this??

Let's reel this one in :-P a bit closer and brighten up the Bass a bit with my favorite free photo editor GIMP:

On December 4, 2017, he wrote: “This Largemouth Bass swallowed a mailbox… The fisherman left the weight scale in its mouth. The cover is obviously hand made and very well done.”

We'll go fishin' for more mailboxes in 2018. Happy New Year!
