So many days you passed me by
See the tear standing in my eye
You didn't stop to make me feel better
By leaving me a card or a letter
~Please Mr. Postman

Inventive, decorative, and unexpected mailboxes today:

Cool! I'm kinda scared to stick my hand in #487...

These are wonderful and so clever. I imagine the mailman gets some mushroom soup on his daily rounds.

I agree with Irene...#487 looks daunting!

Love the imagination that went into these works of art.

414E even uses the newspaper box to act as an air scoop for his engine. :-)

And you couldn't have picked a better intro than the lyrics to the Marvelettes' song.

These are amazing, Tabatha. Somewhere, there is a very cool USPS willing to have one of its boxes post as R2D2.
