    Hey scaper,

    I thought it was illegal to place anything on the mailbox itself, only tacking to the post is considered O.K.?

    Be careful you dont get fined by the US Mail, in addition to local police ticketing you for littering after you toss that flier.

    Just a thought....

    hey," totalcaredelusions" i thought you got booted off the site a couple days ago, glad to have you back, though i see you havnt learned much. actually, i've been using the mailbox flag for years , never had a problem other than those other flyers accidently falling off. and you're absolutly right, littering is illegal, thats why i always throw them in the back of the truck , i think some of them were yours, so you owe me for saving you a ticket! ~scaper~:) p.s. did you ever get your craftsman push mower situation worked out?
