FOLSOM BEAD from the SHIFTING SAND SITE—TEXAS.

Estimated by the experts to be at least
11,000 YEARS Old.

“ This stone tiny bone or ivory bead was found stuck to a stone flake during excavation of the Shifting Sand site in Texas. It represents one of the oldest beads ever found in the United States.” .. DEPT. OF ANTHROPOLOGY– UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS COLL.

Why so small? What ancient society had the leisure time, the eyesight and the skill to construct beads of this size?

Who had the patience to string them?

    – In other news, Hasbro lost a package of Barbie sized Cheerios for the upcoming Barbie breakfast nook. The package of tiny Cheerios were lost somewhere in Texas. If someone finds any of the tiny breakfast cereal, please contact Hasbro Toys… err… oh nevermind…
