I made the most of my mandatory unpaid vacation days last week by driving down to Joshua Tree National Park. Here’s a souvenir from the trip, photos of a one-room school house that rancher/miner/gunfighter Bill Keys built on his property in the mid-1900s for his kids and others who lived in the area. I forgot to ask exactly when the school was built, but Keys lived at the Desert Queen Ranch from 1917 until he died in 1969 (with the exception of a five-year stay at San Quentin Prison after a gunfight with his neighbor).
