    Shorpy All Stars

    A thread to exclusively post all those great Shorpy hat photos

    I'll start with this unusual straw from 1919

    Great Idea!

    But rather than simply posting a link to a supersized photo, why not add a downsized photo via a photo hosting site.

    Indeed, I would prefer to do it that way. I'm currently at work and the hospital IT people have banned all photo hosting sites

    Poor pre & post natal nutrition, high bacterial loads of human pathogens & high parasite loads coupled with a diet relatively high in bulk & low in protein & animal fats, particularly saturated fats. (MMmmm saturated fats!)

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
    Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness,
    for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."
