Greetings and salutations to the New Thursday 13 players! We are looking forward to reading your entries today.
Thursday 13 is easy! Just a list of 13 things - because we aren't scared of that number! LOL. We don't care what things you list - it can be books, collections, photos, quotes, random thoughts - it's all up to you!

On June 4, 1896, Henry Ford drove his first Ford vehicle through streets of Detroit.
