This very funny postcard from the 1930’s not only shows the beautiful mauves, purples, and orange colors of the desert, but also shows a tolerant donkey expressing his opinion of life in the desert carrying the mining supplies of his owner.
The original card says:
Q. Don’t your remember the desert, old pal
The desert with scenery like this
A. Joshua Palm and lonesome old Jack
The fortune you dream of but miss
And then the donkey responds with:
40 Miles From Wood
50 Miles From Water
10 Feet from Hell
God Bless our Home
The card itself says it all folks!
