Erin's skull

I am so enamored of my meteor fragment that I have removed the tri-metal amulet and arrowhead I have been wearing* and tied the fragment around my neck.

So this is what my kid said: "After you die and the earth blows up, your pieces are going to fly out into space and land on a planet and some alien is going to pick up your skull and tie it around his neck."

I hope she's right.

*when I wear something around my neck, I tie it on with cording and never remove it until it's time to change the cording.

I wonderfully understand this!
I truly do.
It is neat to see someone else 'say' what I have been thinking.
(thank you!)

I love this! It reminds me . . .

When I was a kid, I bought this polished white stone from a woman at a local fair. She told me it was a moon rock. I thought . . . yeah right.

That night my father said rocks fall from the sky all the time. How could I be sure my rock didn't come from the sky?

For about a week I squinted up at the sky. I wasn't sure I liked the idea of falling rocks.

Like those signs on the side of the road . . .

I found a christmas tree shaped arrow head in our back field when I was a kid. I found it after we had spent the day moving dirt to make a motorcycle track in the back yard, we lived on nine acres at least a third was dirt track devoted.
My best friends which included the Roscoe family owned farm land in this area for over 100 years and had a shoe box full of artifacts, most of them picked up while their forefathers where plowing the fields behind horses.
I lost the arrow head but not the memory of picking it up , talking to my family and friends about its history.Shite its a school night I go bed now!
