LOST MY 'MUG SHOT'

Accidentally lost my  'mug shot' avatar and have no replacement in my files.  So my new avatar is a 'Greek fishing cap." I like them.  Baseball caps sit on my head funny and I don't like them but this cap is light weight and has a bill to...

KATRINA ???

I count New Orleans as my original, chosen, Home Town, and I totally love the crescent city,  I am sick of all these stories that keep popping up.  I know the disaster is being milked for some reason, but I don't know why. What are they up to? ...

My SWASH HAS LOST IT'S BUCKLE

What could be sillier? Having to use one hand to hold my swash up. A daredevil with one hand holding his swash and the other holding his sword. If I switch hands for the sword, My swash will fall to the floor. Maybe I should buy ...

APOLOGIES TO FRIENDS

This move to connect Thoughts to another social blog site has me spooked. What are their rules and policies on privacy? I came on thoughts a year and a half ago.  It seemed safe.  I could express what I was thinking without revealing to the...

Looking for more EVIDENCE?
