Mysterious Sign

You’d expect while traveling through different parts of the country to see unusual signs.  We’ve seen our share, but there is a crosswalk sign in Valley Center that really has us baffled.  Here’s a picture.  Has anyone else ever seen a horse crossing sign?


As you can see, there is a separate button to push for horse riders to cross at this intersection.  We’ve been here for over two weeks and have not seen a single horse on the roads.  There are a few ranches in the area, but we can’t figure out why this crosswalk has a special horse rider button.  Strange!

It rained again all day yesterday.  I thought we were supposed to be in sunny California.  The forecast is for sun the next 7 to 10 days.  Yippee!!

Our electrical box has a new plug in it and is working okay again.  Some of you asked if we have a surge protector.  We do, and it has shut our power down a few times when there were storms or low voltage.  It would have eventually shut us down with this problem as well, but Kevin got to it quickly and shut things down himself.  We agree with many of you that a surge protector is a very important item to have, and we wouldn’t be without it.

I’m still feeling under the weather.  I think it’s just a cold that has to run it’s course.  My throat hurts, I’m somewhat congested, and have zero energy.  Luckily, I can rest and take it easy.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. The horse rider button is higher up than the walking pedestrian button. Maybe a rider can't easily reach down to the lower button.

    We have a horse rider caution sign on our road and in 22 years I have never seen a rider.

    Horses in fields, yes, but not on the road.

  2. Hope you feel better soon! It's going around here too :(

  3. Maybe you could rent a horse, go for a ride, and see if you need the horse button? NEIGH!!! :)

  4. John agrees with Merikay that the button is higher because a rider wouldn't be able to reach a lower one. Someone with a horse probably lobbied hard to make them put that button on. Hope you feel better soon.


We'd love to hear from you!
