5649 East 3rd Street

Quail and wildflowers cover this mailbox with a stuccoed post. David Aber found it. He wrote about it — and the previous two mailboxes:

“All three photos were taken on Feb. 16, 2016 and all three mailboxes were found in my usual way......by accident. In this case, I was looking for yards with lots of wildflowers. There’s quite a few homeowners (especially in midtown) that buy packaged wildflower seed from their local nursery and scatter it in their front yards. Right now it’s all in bloom. Looking for flowers in front yards, I could hardly miss the mailboxes.”

Thanks, as always, Dave!

6129 East Rosewood Street

This mailbox “post” is showing some wear (and is the box itself tagged?). I think it's the biggest post I've seen. Actually, David Aber found it (on February 16th).

Computer coming back to life

I'm on the road with my laptop computer. It went into a bizarre cycle of trying to fix itself, giving up, trying to fix again, and…. I finally gave up, wiped out my programs (a.k.a. "apps"), and re-installed Windows.

So the blog may not be back to normal until I'm home early next week. Sorry about that.

1327 South 8th Avenue

David Aber sent these photos. (Thanks!) He wrote: “Here’s a mailbox I found on S. 8th Ave. that is in the shape of a cathedral. It’s between 23rd and 24th Streets. It’s on an empty lot, but Google Earth says the address is 1327 S. 8th Ave. This meshes with the numbers of the surrounding homes.”

710 South 7th Avenue

David Aber found this mailbox with a house-shaped top and a huge “post” underneath. (These folks can get a lot of mail!)

David Aber emailed this photo of a rust-finished mailbox in a Southwestern style… on top of a post that matches the wall behind it:

Thanks, David.

337 West Blacklidge Drive

On November 20th, I rode by this plain-vanilla mailbox with colorful tile on its post and underneath:

The other side of the post is about the same:
