It is fun seeing Mule Mail & Biblioburros program hosted by National Postal Museum Guest Artist Program with John Parra – this Wednesday, August 30th at 4pm ET.
The full title is Mule Mail & Biblioburros: Reaching Communities in Unexpected Ways.
“NPM’s Guest Artist John Parra examines interesting ways that animals have been used to deliver things to communities around the world!”
While the focus age group is for families with children ages 5-10 years, I’m planning to attend thinking of this for a fun future project with great niece and nephew.
Furthermore, I’m including this link to the artist John Parra website.
I hope you’ll consider signing up for this event!

“The book entitled “First Through Grand Canyon: The Secret Journals & Letters of the 1869 Crew Who Explored the Green & Colorado Rivers, revised edition” … “
Before closing, wanted to share, I am beginning today the first of my two eye surgeries for cataracts. This means I’m not going to be posting for the next few weeks. Wishing you a restful Labor Day weekend as we wrap up summer and head into fall. Thank you again for being on this blog journey with me. I’m looking forward to being back here soon.
