A new postage stamp

Lady Bird Johnson at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Texas
  A new U S Postal Service Forever stamp has been issued to honor Mrs. Johnson on the advent of her 100th birthday.
  While it's a bit unusual for a First Lady to be honored by the Post Office she is not the first, far from it.  The honor is because of her work to beautify the roadsides not only in Texas by nationwide.  I fully support those efforts and thank her for her work.  Maine has had a "billboard law" for years and years.  No billboards along the road makes a huge difference in what people see as they ride along.  Personally I do look for flowers, tree and keep an eye out for wild animals.
  Take a few seconds to send Mrs. Johnson a small "thank you".

  1. I agree with you about road side signs, but
    it also nice when traveling to know what exit
    to take to fill up with gas. Wilbur
