I found it odd seeing this fire extinguisher next to the post box. Are they afraid some of the letters will burst into flames and people passing by will stop to put the fire out?
TB Markinson is an American who's recently returned to the US after a seven-year stint in the UK and Ireland. When she isn't writing, she's traveling the world, watching sports on the telly, visiting pubs in New England, or reading. Not necessarily in that order.
Her novels have hit Amazon bestseller lists for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.
She cohosts the Lesbians Who Write Podcast (lesbianswhowrite.com) with Clare Lydon. TB also runs I Heart Lesfic (iheartlesfic.com), a place for authors and fans of lesfic to come together to celebrate lesbian fiction.
I believe they were paying attention to the theme of red and black. A true exterior designer would know! And I am obviously accredited enough to note the intricate beauty of two pedestals made of red and black.
Actually, yes. Sometimes people use the mailboxes for their cigarette butts, most times unintentionally (think tourists) and sometimes intentionally.
Maybe I can understand the unintentional–but even that is difficult. Maybe I’m just used to seeing them, even before I moved here. They are one of the images I associate with London, like the red phone booths.
Maybe someone knew there were hot, smoking letters inside ready to ignite. (smile)
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Must be some red hot mail in there, to be sure.
someone did set fire to one of our post boxes last year–so they are just being practical–it happened in my small town in front of a convenience store–they have now moved the box away from the store and closer to the road
That’s horrible. I don’t understand actions like that.
I don’t either
very funny, thank you tbm!
Maybe the fire extinguisher has hopes for when it grows up!
lol…that’s really funny!!
hot mails ready to burst.
there’s almost no mailbox here.
How do you send letters? Do you have to go to an office?
yup…we have to go to the post office. people dont trust mailbox here
Could have added a hose to the big guy … thus turned it into father and son.
Next time. The son has wandered off.
Great catch TBM 😆
I see the beauty of this mail box. A slender hot red cylinder with a cap that imposes its presence in a mostly grey weather.
incendiary letters?! Regardless, I love the intense reds!!
LOL – well that’s the first time I’ve seen something like that!
