Weekend Diversion: The World’s Oldest Street Artist (Synopsis)

“Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.” -Banksy

and while you consider the "yarn bombings" of the yarnstorming group known as the Souter Stormers in Scotland.

Geez, Tex, there's nothing stopping you from looking at the moon. Bad timing? Naw ......

Remember, PJ, nothing is allowed to be said on a "Blood Moon". Teabaggie has said so.
