Got a little surprise in the mail the other day from John ( Thunder69). He was nice enough to send me some of his fine Mississippi Agate specimens for my type collection. Absolutely beautiful and very interesting agate!. I didn't have any in my collection either. John, thank you so much and if I can ever help you out with something you need from stuff I post let me know. Here are a couple of pics....Mel
Tumbled specimens. Pic does not do them justice at all.

wampidy: For those that do not know me, the high on Saturday was a joke. I have never drank any kind of alcohol past one Margarita or half a beer, I have not done any drugs for many years and I have not been addicted to anything more than cigarettes.

wampidy: I am a firm believer that the non violent drug related prisoners should be set free so they have enough room to keep the efin child molesters and rapists for way more than the few years they get if they get anything.
