    On March 18, 1766, the Stamp Act - a tax levied on the British colonies in America which required that many printed materials be produced on stamped paper produced in London - was repealed. It was enacted in 1765 to pay for British military troops stationed in the American colonies that were there to protect from a French invasion, but the colonists thought the tax was unfair (plus they weren't really worried about a French invasion).

    I know that the Stamp Act wasn't about stamps in the way that we think of them now, but since the word "stamp" made me immediately think of the Postal Service, let's go out and find one of those blue USPS collection boxes.

    Fun fact: letter boxes started out as green in 1860, then red in the 1880s, silvery white from 1897-1905, then back to green. In 1955, they were Red, White, and Blue, and finally in 1970, they came to look like they do now: solid deep blue color with reflective decals featuring the Postal Service's eagle seal.

    Happy hunting!

    3/19/21 - Freezing Saddles 5 letter word (or longer) subanagram

    LeftyLaura and I are submitting the same photo today because throughout Freezing Saddles we have ridden together to find two different examples of whatever the quest item was. This time, the same sign shows "GARDEN" and "ISLAND", which both qualify, but both of us and our bikes are still friends after the 77 days of fun.

    Thank you again drevil and JoM for taking this on. It's been so revealing to me in many ways, not the least of which is how much I need to work on my photography skills!

    3/19/21 - Freezing Saddles 5 letter word (or longer) subanagram

    While KBikeVA & I are submitting the same photo today, I am choosing not to take the easy way out and just copy her words, though I have been known to copy thought out word of others, but I'll go it alone. This is my second year of the Saddles and I never really embraced the pointless prizes until this year. Having a riding partner has been a tremendous help, most of the time. As we are unique individuals it has been two photos, two parks, two arts while sharing the coffee stop. I couldn't have done two coffee stops a day for many reasons. The photo shows the "Garden" and the "Island".

    We have become such good biking buddies that I'm patching out to NJ for a rest & a pizza. It was fun to meet folks on the Reston Art rides and online, such an interesting crew.

    Thank you to dreverl & JoM for tallying this. (There must be an app for it). Enjoy the FSLNHHP and remember clockwise is the only way it works.

    On your ride tomorrow, the last day of Freezing Saddles <sniff, sniff>, find a 5-letter word (or longer) using only the letters in "Freezing Saddles", the word or the thing. If the latter, let us know what you found. Snap a pic, and post it here in the thread.
    subanagram == "ladders", the thing
