I repaint, repair or replace our mail boxes every few years. It was that time again so I ask my wife what color
she would like. Her answer was she didn’t care. As all men know, women do care. She doesn’t like the John Deere green and yellow. (All 3 houses are here on the farm)

I am sure she dropped some subtle hints. Of course us men never notice those hints. I like the JD green. Nice job.

Nailed the color. Hope your wife isn’t one of those “red tractor” loonies (mine is).

Some say instead of John Deere green and yellow, I should say it’s Packer green and yellow.
Maybe next time I’ll do Colts Blue and White?

Gianni, We still have and use my Grand dads Ford 8N (red belly) tractor. Gray and red maybe?

Nice job. I bet postal workers will get a lift every time they deliver your mail.

GravityWave Yes, my carrier likes it. I also moved the boxes 10 back off the road and added gravel to it, my Rural Route Carrier really liked that. I’m a retired City Letter Carrier myself, and retired Navy.

Maybe next summer Blue and White for the Indianapolis Colts with a large horse shoe on the lattice?
