I want to thank everyone who responded.  I found the problem.  Evidently,
when I created the thumb-drive I overlooked the setting for file
persistence.  I know better than that but when I recreated the drive
everything worked as expected, so that must have been the trouble all along.

Anyway, I sure appreciate this group and the different things I read about
