Wow this brings back memories! I totaled a truck just like this that belonged to a church. I remember this mailbox going under the truck thinking, "That mail box shouldn't be there!"..1 sec before I did an abrupt halt!! (fell asleep at the wheel and hit two trees.
The sign is a great addition. good shot!
