A salute to B Squared's mailboxes


There's a very funny photo blogger in Fort Lauderdale, Florida known as B Squared. Lately, he's been posting some very funny mail boxes he's located around his city. The other day, I happened upon these two mailboxes standing side by side chatting about the load of mail they have to bear and mentioned B Squared's Fort Lauderdale mailboxes. Well, they were so impressed, their little red flags flew up in unison in a salute to the mailboxes of Fort Lauderdale!

Naturally, I had to take a picture of this phenomenon.

B Squared mailboxes are legend over here, you have found a nice way to salute him!

I like mail boxes.

Bel hommage

These look like the mailbox my grandmother had. It was a thrill for me to put a letter in the box, and flip up the flag. Another thrill was when the flag was down, and I'd rush out to get the mail.

Yes, you had to :)

It's a nice take!

Clever post. B Squared will most likely be sending his reply by mail.

Phenomenal photo! This seems to be a heavy mail week for you!
Oh, that B Squared - he's a funny, good guy! (I hope you don't rub off on him, Jacob Meister!)

This is a funny photo. You should hold a caption contest for this.... Or maybe a joke contest. "What did one mail box say to the next mail box...."

Lois said...

Of course you did! I have always enjoyed B Squared's blog and especially the mailboxes.

Halcyon said...

Oh goodness! Now we have two of you!! ;-)

Happy Friday!

Jacob said...

@ Bibi - I still do that every day! Well, only when I put mail in the mailbox for the mailman to pick up.

"What did one mail box say to the next mail box...."

You know I had a girlfriend mailbox, but I had to letter go.

(Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Jarart said...

LOL! No you couldn't have passed that up!

Twin mailboxes. And to think you actually heard them chatting! Hmmmmm.

Jacob said...

@ Memphis - That's very good!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

LOL! What a riot! Cute.

Tricia said...

These are so dark! Are they mourning? I wish we had nice ones though, we can't show you any!

Daryl said...

Two Flags Up .. I'd say that was equal to a standing ovation!

Paula said...

I was totally confused when I saw this - well, more than usual - and I say "Flags off to you and 2B."
It's a pretty cool find. And sorry I haven't been visiting. I have the flu. '~(

Virginia said...

"Letter go"! HAR love that!

And a big salut to our B2 from me as well. I've got a mailbox up my sleeve to knock his socks off. I've just got to ask my friend at church tomorrow if I can photograph hers.

Great post Jacob.

I really do not need any other blogs to follow, but now I have to go check out B Squared...at least for the mailboxes...

B SQUARED said...

I am truly touched! Then again, many would agree with that. Thank you very much. Hope to find more, but the mail is a little slow these days.

I love the postbox, especially the little red on the top. It is similar to my postbox logo.

You can drop me postcard if you like :)
