Posted by Versatileer on Tuesday, July 28, 2020

I am sharing a republishing of a Facebook Party from July that Facebook erroneously does not want you, my follower to see. They keep changing the format that it takes to render its photos, and keep acting like “The Invisible Man“. Originally from Facebook Party Jul 28 at 4:30 PM – Jul 30 at 8 AM: Celebrate Mars Launch – NASA Retro Mission Patch Party
