    Some of you folks have mail boxes in public houses. If the box is merely locked down instead of secured, if can not be used by well meaning passerbys. *coughs* Miranda *coughs*

    If secured you can still control who can retrieve the "mail".

    Maybe it was meant to keep out the riff raff *cough* Kelmo *cough*, while still having a pretty mailbox to look at. =]

    You will thank him when at a critical moment, that turnip saves your life.

    Maybe it was to prevent scurvy.

    Be honest - When was the last time you ate a vegetable?

    I have nothing against a vegetarian diet. In fact, most of the best food has a vegetarian diet.

    I just couldn't survive on one. If I had to live for a month with no meat, my body might survive somehow, but I'd be dead on the inside.

    Now she is putting up a vegetable screen to throw us off discovering the fact that she is in fact, a scurvy-ridden pirate! [​IMG]

    The turnip was for Kelmo. I put it in your box since he does not have a mail box. It is to remind Kelmo that he fell off the turnip truck.

    Spree has a habit of locking weird things down in people's houses (or just throwing crap everywhere on the floor)

    Now with the advent of mailboxes, I believe the hobby has become an obsession...

    Oh DOH ! Well ya know when I put the porch into all snowy winter wonderland, I just tossed that mail box out there and locked it down.

    Although I have no idea how to control whom REMOVES items from a secured mailbox either, when it is set to locked down secured to anyone to enter to put items in then...can not anyone remove said items, too ?

    You will get the same menu as with any other secure. Set it to owner and only the house owner can get the mail.

    Trust me. When locked down, the mail box wants to lock down any thing put in it. Only friends can lock items down.

    If a secure, in a public house. Any one can place in it. Only the owner can remove the mail.
