    Looks like 2104 (who I think is called Jean) ain't gonna be playing much, but iffen anyone else is interested, I'll give it a go.

    It was Dr Seuss that wrote the book "Oh, The Places You'll Go"....the title of this thread.

    In this joyous ode to life, Dr. Seuss addresses graduates of all ages--from nursery school to medical school--and gives them the get-up-and-go to move mountains with the unrivaled exuberance and charm.

    **********************************************************************************

    The challenge is to think of a PLACE that begins with the last letter of the previous player's choice. "PLACES" could include, countries, states, cities, etc.

    Just a few rules:

    - one PLACE name per entry - at least one entry from another player before posting again
    - players may include some words about their choice, but that is not necessary
    - because there is a time delay before posts appear on the board, the first of two closely timed entries will keep the sequence

    The GOAL is to have an interesting and surprising journey....without having to pack your bags, or worry about visas, passports, money, languages, schedules, time zones or the weather. The game will end when our interest has been exhausted.

    To carry on from the previous thread -

    There's a Syracuse in New York, but I think the original was in Greece along w/ the original Thermopolis. Spelling was a little different. Of course, if you want to spell Greek properly, you have to join a sorority or fraternity.
