7440 North Benet Drive

Driving along Silverbell on February 2nd, I ended up taking a wrong turn and winding along a road between a bland-looking subdivision and some land that was much less developed. As I was about to turn around, I spotted this mailbox. It was for a home back in the less-developed land. (The development had honeycombed stacks of plain Postal Service mailboxes.)

Next, I'll zoom in to just the south and west sides of the box. I like the eagle carrying an envelope across the mailbox end:

319 West Pennsylvania Drive

David Aber calls this mailbox “Pony Express” after the long-ago service that delivered mail and etc.

He emailed the photo September 25, 2018, after a nice talk with the homeowner. The mailbox was made by the previous homeowner while he recovered from a stroke!

Next, a closer view:

Bucking Betty coming soon to a home near you?

I found Bucking Betty out in the desert earlier this month. There was no sight of her owner. The steel sculpture artist Pat Frederick might know something about where she is by the time you see this. Pat hopes Betty can find a new home…

(Pat is one of my favorite Tucson sculptors. I was short of mailbox photos to post online, so I asked if I could show the photo here. Maybe you'll see Betty along Pima County roads sometime soon?)
