Fancy mailboxes

Our mailbox is mounted on a metal pole, probably about an inch-and a half in diameter. The previous occupants had piled bricks around the pole, chimney-style, to keep drivers from knocking the mailbox over. The strategy here is to make the mailbox so low to the ground that troublemakers won't notice it. I don't know why there are pebbles on the mail boxes.

When they hit it with a bat you get the satisfaction of hearing them scream as the shock goes all the way up their arms. Of course you need a tough post to put it on, some local kids borrowed their parents Hummer and went around driving over mailboxes, they would have got away with it except they got stuck in a ditch behind one mail box.
