Carrier wins a car

Kingwood, TX, Rural Carrier Marilyn Miller got the surprise of her life last week.A local dealership picked her name from among thousands of entries to win a new 2008 Honda Civic TX. Read the whole story here.

Her rural route was converted to LLV delivery a while ago, but the car will rack up plenty of miles without too much effort. Miller has a 100-mile round trip from her home near Houston to the Kingwood Post Office.

I won a horse once. But when I tried to ride it, the poor creature was so old that it's back swayed like a U and my feet drug on the ground. I took back the "prize horse."I'm hoping that Marilyn has better luck. It's nice when one of our own does well!
