Whoa Sixacres... timeout!  smiley_smash

We're talking about miserable, low-down, no account scumbags here. >:(

Don't be trying to cheer us up with a happy story about an honest, upstanding young man here.  :D

(Maybe hope for us yet)   ;)

I didn't mean anything about scumbags or anything about bad people or whatever. its just sad when people are in such great need they choose to steal or feel it is the only way to get what they need.

We never have had a mail box. We're missing a lot I guess.

Had a big problem in my father in law's neighborhood in S Florida with punks driving down and pulling mailboxes and feeding them to the gators in the canals. We replaced the mailbox with a 6X6 post sunk into the ground 4 feet, then mounted the mailbox to that w a few nails that accidentally missed the post. After they smashed up their car, they tried to pull the box and felt just like Jesus. ;D A little blood on the nails.  ;D They had to settle for bashing it with  a 2X4. :(

I had trouble with mailbox bashers, knockers at my house. I used a heavy red cedar post sunk in 4 feet, then got one of those heavy 10 ga. mail boxes and mounted it on bur oak deck screwed to the post. The bashers are very sad. :'( :'( :'(

I am happy. ;D 8) 8) 8) :snowball:

Last 'neighborhood' we lived in had three houses on one side, one on the other. Two mailboxes were on one post across the road from us. Kids full of mischief from  about 1/2 mile away were putting firecrackers in the boxes one night. Us neighbors were in my drive waiting for them, sure enough they slowly came down the road and stuffed it again. Next time I waited in the van, engine running, in gear, parking brake on, no lights. Here they come! The fireworks went off, the lights came on, a squeal of tires and the race was on! I chased them around the local roads for close to twenty miles! Never with the intention of actually catching them, just to scare them a bit. The three teens pulled over and got out. I made sure the windows were up as I passed by. They must've thought that old man to be CRAZY!!, as we never did have another issue....
