Wordless Wednesday: Rural Mailbox


Tractor Mailbox in Roxbury NY


We were in a rural area of upstate New York in Roxbury, in the Catskill Mountains, for our niece's wedding in May 2016 (we even had some snow while we were there). We had some free time and decided to visit a local maple sugar company, and drive around a bit to explore.


I spied this quirky mailbox, which seemed particularly well suited to an area where there are a number of farms.

Jeff one of my neighbors has a mailbox that looks like a John Deer tractor.

I was a John Deere girl and I'd prefer a green tractor over a red one... but still this is really a cute idea!  Kathy

How cool is that George Souto ?!

I thought it was pretty neat, and no doubt there were others around I did not notice Ron and Alexandra Seigel

I like someone with a sense of humor. Perfect mailbox for the setting - plus I bet it makes the mail delivery person smile each time they see it.

Thanks Rocky Dickerson 

Lynnea Miller  - I do as well. I suspect you are right about the mail delivery person.
