More From Down the Road

Some of the mailboxes on our route seem to be held together with wire and bubble gum.

Others are down right pretty and practical too. Their watering can is tucked in right behind the mailbox.

Simple yet clever. A sort-of visor, made out of a piece of plastic has been duct taped to the edge so no raindrops will fall on their mail.

An old metal hand pump makes a great home for a mailbox.

Swinging from an old electrical post, complete with its original insulators, is this funky mailbox.

Today is my last day delivering mail as the regular gal is back next week. I'll miss seeing the deer and goats, saying hi to neighbours and drinking our daily Tim Horton's coffee. Did I mention that between the two concession roads on the route is a Tim Horton's? And yes, we have to go in because they get mail too!

I absolutely love your mailboxes! They are oozing with quirkiness and character. How about another book from Ronna!

Looks like you had a lot of fun! How much time did it take to do the run? I wish we had these mailboxes here...

Stopping in at Tim Horton's eh? In the US at Dunkin Donuts you'd have to push the Sheriff Patro out of the way--is Tim's a local hot spot for the constabulary in Canada?
