Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

Country Roads

On a recent trip to Blounts Creek, North Carolina, I passed this unique mailbox.
I was so intrigued, I had to stop and take photographs!


I guess I'll have to start saving my extra large Ball jars.



We get so much junk mail, I would need a couple of gallon size jugs strapped to our post!

Don't you wonder what happened to their previous mailbox?

Hahaha... I have seen a couple of interesting mailboxes out this way maybe I will have to stick the camera in my bag next time I venture out. I would be worried the glass jug would break in the cold or that a teenager would be tempted to take a BB-gun to it.

lol

That made me laugh out loud. It reminds me of the Jeff Foxworthy joke that they painted MALE on their box, and no one in the family noticed, except to say that shouldn't "male" be capitalized...

Here in CA, you can't just use anything, but I would suggest maybe a chicken feeder or a covered litter box if the need arises.

Jeff Foxworthy would LOVE this - - -

"You just might be a redneck if you have a glass gallon jug strapped to pole instead of a mailbox"

Wait until a "mailbox baseball" team comes down that road!

My Mom had an enormous mail box on her farm until a "mailbox baseball team" decided it was an easy target. Now she has a normal one. I betcha that's what happened to the owners of the jar. At least you can see if the mail has arrived yet, Very practical!

Mailboxes in general intrigue me as we don't tend to have them much here in the UK.

I've never seen one like that!!! Is it even legal?? I know there are laws about mailboxes....hmmmm.....

Thanks for being brave enough to get out of your car to take pictures for us, lol!

That's quite a clever and unusual mailbox! Although it's certainly not very private, you'd always know whether or not you have mail!

Only in the country does one see ball jar mailboxes, toilet stool petunia holders, and bathtub flower beds. Gotta love the simplicity!

That gives me an idea: I should put a smal garbage can out for a mial box! Then the "junk mail" will take care of it's self!

;-)

That's pretty inventive - But seems like it would be a target for young hooligans with baseball bats.
