The Republic of Indian Stream

I love these charming bits of history that reveal a more eccentric America, where things were more fluid, creative and wild.

More info here and here.

And here's what the bustling center of the Republic and its citizens look like today.

We need our own WU island country. C'mon all you regulars and let's pool some funding. I have 20K I can spare towards it. Start shopping Paul, Alex, etc !!

The two main traits of a WUvian are that they have well above average intelligence and are individualistic. My osmosis thunk,anyway. 😊

I'm not sure, therefore, that WUvana would a Utopia? :coolhmm:

As long as y'all get it through your heads that I'm the CHOSEN ONE everything will be the Utopia you're seeking.

Neat bit of history. I wish my kids would have listened as well as the mooselets did when mom called.

I'll let Expat be in charge as long as I get to be second in command. I bet we could come up with some great ideas for the country of WUtopia/WUvana.

Patty .. you can be secretary of state for all the WUmen. Just make sure we always get to breastesesssss.

Paul can be the "figurehead" leader.

OK .. back to my Oxycontin and Whiskey. Ya gotta love post surgery medicines.
