Scorpion box...

…its tail is the handle to open the door! I found it (but didn't open it :) on November 22nd.

7046 Flamenco Place: Another amazing locomotive

On November 8, 2016, we showed a handmade locomotive mailbox. This one looks homemade, too. Here's a closeup:
David Aber sent the photos on November 5. Thanks as always!

880 West 19th Street: Mobile mailbox

This mailbox on a tricycle is rusty enough that I'd guess it actually hasn't been moving for a while:
I rolled by (and stopped) on August 4th.

4310 East Ware Road: Other bugs are in danger

The praying mantis on top of this flower-covered mailbox gives me a bit of cred in the “Battle of the Boxes” with David Aber, who always finds amazing mailboxes. (Come to think of it, though, he was driving both of us in his car. Sigh. :)

(A praying mantis eats other insects.)

The rest of the front yard is a nice complement to the box:
That's the last mailbox I found May 29th in this neighborhood: near Columbus Boulevard a few blocks north of 22nd. (But I'm planning to come back and hunt for more.)

618 South Columbus: Another barn (?) on a post

Last week's entry showed what looked to me like a barn on a post. Not to be outdone, I'm sure, this box is bigger.

The address below says 618 S. Columbus, but this is actually just south of there. I was in the neighborhood on May 29th.
