Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, February 2014.

"Mail"~Sunday Series 52~082811
Another blogger(http://sparepartsandpics.blogspot.com/) (he's practically a neighbor and lives up in 29 Palms) pointed me to A Rural Journal and she has a 52 week challenge. This week's challenge is "mail". Hmmm...I mulled over this challenge overnight. My town, being fairly modern, doesn't have a historical or even interesting post office. Frankly, it looks like a prison (...shudder...). One year, we had a PO box (I forget why...) and I HATED it! I hated going to the post office, I lost the key...you name it, I just did NOT enjoy the experience of having a PO box. I think it was because our daughter had a credit card lifted from our mailbox (thinking back...). I notice that a lot of my neighbors have the big mailboxes built into either rock or stone columns and mailboxes that LOCK. I think we should do that. The guy across the street does that for people and I'm going to ask him to do one for me, although I love my horse-covered mailbox! (see 1st photo)...You see how STERILE our post office is? I mean, would you enjoy going there? I hear that Redlands, CA has an older one, but that's 60 miles away! I love quaint, little post offices and I think I'll start taking photos of some of them. I wish I'd done that while we were in Arizona! Sunday Series 52 for August 28, 2011. To see other participants in SS 52, please go to: http://www.aruraljournal.com/2011/08/sunday-series-52-week-2.html
