Mailbox Personalities

Have you ever heard the saying, "You can judge the owners of a house by their mailbox?" No? For example...

This mailbox screams hippie. Its owners throw out conventional standards and reject society's customs. The use of blue and flowers indicates that this mailbox belongs to creative, free thinkers who don't care what others think. They are also probably Democrats.
The owners of this dignified mailbox value tradition. They have a meticulously clean house and strive to always appear that they have life under control. The husband and wife have separate bedrooms.As apparent by this bird-poop-covered mailbox, a man is the owner of this house. A stubborn, somewhat conceited man who has a thing for marigolds. He refuses to do what everybody else does and doesn't care if all the other mailboxes on the street are on a pole. He takes pride in the fact that HE was smart enough to put his on a wheel.
The owners of this mailbox like to shoot things. They're Republican.

A former playground bully owns this unique mailbox. He/she likes to intimidate others as indicated by the treacherous looking hooks hanging from either end of the box. Each day, the mail person has to stick his or her hands into a gaping mouth. The owner of this mailbox would like to lure the neighbors into thinking that he/she just likes to fish, but really, he/she is hiding a secret ambition to be the neighborhood crime lord.
This chipped concrete dog mailbox is owned by a procrastinator. As indicated by the chipped paint and lack of care, the owners obviously, don't like the concrete statue and meant to get rid of it years ago. A symbol of ignored requests, this mailbox is the laughingstock of the neighborhood. Inside the house, frustration mounts. A woman with a sledgehammer calculates Rover's demise...

Can you guess which one is mine?

Ha - I'm curious if you got caught photographing all the other mailboxes :)

I think I should bring my hammer and we could have a party demolishing said puppy while the boys and kids grill us dinner - I can bring the meat :) What do you think?

Love you

I have to guess that you are the woman with the sledgehammer! What a great idea! Unfortuately, all the mailboxes around here look the same! The neighbor across the street had a mailbox on top of a radiator, but the new owners replaced it with an ordinary looking mailbox!

Thank you for linking up to Meme's the Word! You're awesome!

This is my first time reading your blog (but not the last) and I have to take a wild guess and say the last one? Hilariously funny. Thanks!
