The Pony Express turns 150 this year and the folks over in St. Joseph, Missouri put on a big 'to-do' to commemorate and celebrate the starting off point for the overland riders.
.I read the editorial on the Pony Express in Cowboys and Indians Magazine and would have loved to have gone and participated in all of the events and reenactments.
- Unfortunately - my schedule didn't allow it, but
- Fortunately -Â Jane, a Facebook friend and Double D gal did get to go and luckily she has shared her pictures from the festivities.
Wanted. Young, skinny, wiry fellows. Not over 18. Must be expert riders. Willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred..
