10619 East Placita Los Reyes

Here's a closeup of one side of this hand-painted box:

Next, the other side. I notice two things about it. First, the scene on the mailbox is painted over the flag. Most mailboxes have a flag that doesn't blend in with the scene. Second, the house number is written on the plastic newspaper tube underneath the box. The number doesn't seem to be anywhere else (including on the other side of the tube — which I didn't show because it looks like, well, a plastic tube):

David Aber snapped these on May 1, 2017.

As the expression goes: When pigs have wings…

Maybe the Silva family knows something we don't? :)

David Aber flew by this gem (and, lucky for us, he stopped!) on April 26th.

2201 South Avenida Guillermo

David Aber calls that one the Orcabox (because of the swimming orca). He wrote that the owner saw him photographing the mailbox and came out to ask what the h*** he was doing. ;) Once they got to talking, the owner said that his daughter had painted the box. She's talented, eh?

Here's the other side:

This is the second mailbox David found on April 26th.

2301 South Avenida Guillermo

Even through David Aber says he doesn't go looking for especially creative mailboxes, he sure finds them! This plain box with a tiki post is the first of three that he took on April 26th. (We'll see the other two next.)

Thank you, Dave!

1216 East Miles Street

I'll bet that a child painted this deep blue mailbox with cats, a sun, and green something-or-others.
The other side, and the front, have more designs and a cat-shaped flag with a collar and stars:

I pounced as soon as I spotted this gem on April 8th.
