RM's Peace sign reminded me of a "Ban The Bomb" button that I wore on the lapel of a corduroy sports jacket that I used as a windbreaker in the early sixties. The origin of the peace sign was the Nuclear Disarmament movement and the Ban The Bomb sign was designed by overlapping the semaphor symbols for N and D.
It was later adopted by the Hippy generation as a Peace Sign.

The button was less than an inch in diameter and I don't recall ever throwing it away,(I threw the sports jscket out years ago)) but I haven't seen it in decades.
Yes, Kev - you're probably right - just a little disappointed to feel excluded. And also, along similar lines, I’m a little disappointed that you couldn’t have expressed this opinion privately to me.I have to say, I'm at a loss to understand the need for this comment. Certainly respect your freedom of choice, but it just seems better to have bowed out without any comments.
Here are some beautiful words of wisdom from a cartoon cricket. "When You Wish Upon a Star", sung by Jiminy Cricket in Disney's Pinocchio.
As I recently shared with the Seasonista open mic, my Happy Club name is Cricket O'Weenie ... so I feel some kinship with this other happy cricket.
A good friend of mine has come across a few my SOTU vids on YT and today was our first time meeting up since... so naturally, I coerced him into becoming a full fledged Seasonista. I gave him the theme(s*), played a two chord backer and let him freestyle the rest. We entitled it 'A Moon Wish For Seven Generations.'
Welcome my buddy, Alvin, to the Seasons!
(*) we took the rare Sunday opportunity to freestyle something to meet the criteria of both Seasons 606 and 607 (I'll try to transcribe the lyrics soon).
