Unique Mailbox on Soldier Trail in Tucson, AZ: a Mailbox Series Update

Unique mailbox on Soldier Trail in Tucson, ArizonaChris Griffith, an Active Rain giant and successful REALTOR in Bonita Springs, Florida, is a gem!  Newbies would do well to subscribe to her blog, both for content and ideas.

Chris's post The Mailbox Series - First Time Poster's Welcome caught my eye tonight. 

Real estate bloggers here in the Rain often complain of writer's block.  There's no such thing, IMHO, and Chris proves it with The Mailbox Series. 

Carry your camera at all times, and you'll never run out of things to do, or places to visit.

Here's my first Mailbox Series submission.  (I'll be on the lookout for more.) 

This unique mailbox can be found on Soldier Trail in Tucson, Arizona.  You wouldn't want to drift off the road and smack it with your car!

I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson, Arizona mortgage lender.
