I was born and raised in the small farming and ranching community of Kingsville, Texas, population 25,000, give or take.
In front of our house, at the street curb, was a mailbox. I used to wait for the mail carrier to raise the red flag to indicate that we had mail, at which point I’d rush out to get it.
Here in the city, we have cluster boxes. They aren’t nearly as much fun as a curbside mail box.
Fortunately, San Diego County has a great many rural areas, so when I do a home inspection out in those boondocks, I often get to see great mailboxes, like these two:
If you come to San Diego for a visit, don’t neglect the boondocks! There are a lot of great, historic sites to see beginning with State Route 94.
