A   L   O   H   A  !
" I would have written
 of me on my stone:
 I had a lover's quarrel
 with the world. "
                                  Robert Frost

 "A horse walks into a bar.
 The bartender says,
 'Why the long face?'"

What weird craft is this?

" A thing is unique,
or not unique;
there are no degrees
of uniqueness. "
                 The King's English
                                Fowlers, 1906

How do You find a very special friend?
UNIQUE up on them!

Around the middle
of the 16th Century
the word  'unique'
entered English,
from the Latin;
'Single of it's kind'
What we'd call:
The one and only -


Each of YOU
brings uniqueness.
Thank YOU
                 warmly, cloudia

That is the SS Durfee, it has no real use but it does raise a lot of questions.

I am glad I am not perfect nor unique !

I agree that we are all unique. Perhaps not our individual qualities are one of a kind, but the way we are put together into a whole makes us each unique.

That's a very odd ship! Surely it is unique.

We are individually unique in how the various facets of our lives are combined and experienced.

May you have joy ever, Cloudia. Aloha.

You made me laugh with the long face. And then Tex made me laugh because it would so be a barn joke. Funique post!

Aloha Cloudia, You are unique as well, and so sweet, I bet if you ever had a long face, (as we all do every now and again) you'd turned it around with a big smile! :)
