      #4964725 - 12/13/11 01:38 PM

I got rocks... space rocks

I just put in my order for a small set of very nice meteorites from Galatic Stone. Mike was awesome to work with.

I can't wait to get them. I will post pictures after Christmas.

I can't open my gift till Christmas and then I need to act surprised, but I saw a couple of others I liked, I may do a Paul and if they are available may get 2 large samples.

Fuuny thing is, I knew Helder seemed familiar from someplace outside of Facebook, but I couldn't place where.

Now I know, it's Cloudy Nights!

I guess it's a symptom of how much time I have been spending on Facebook, and how little I have been on CN lately.

Helder - I'm gonna hook you up.
