Meteor fragments

Found a few more meteor fragments this morning. I didn't know what they were before Leon and Brandon told me. I'd picked up some of the fragments before, but not knowing what the were and other than noticing they were way heavy for the size I just tossed them. I won't do that again. So far the largest I've found is about the size of a peach pit.

  3. Tffn from your comment to BWkid I take it you are still not feeling well?

    How is the swelling? Did they give you medication to numb the pain? I hope you get to feeling better real soon.

    Take care.

  4. MsB, my arm is still hurting a good bit and my hand was so swollen last night I had to take the cast off for a while. I put it back on later, but didn't make it as tight as the doc did. My hand seems to have gone down some now and feels better. They only gave me a prescription for about 4 days of pain pills so needless to say I haven't had any for a long time.

  7. Lance, Virgil Clark came by today and it looks like I have a septic system on the way. Then all I'll have to worry about is water to make it all work.

  8. OH BTW congrats on getting to move here full time. It will for sure be hot then. I'm still searching for the meteor fragments in hopes of finding a big chunk.

  11. Neat finding those fragments. Much easier to find in the desert than the piney woods of east TX where I live. Always wanted to find some. Congrats. Hope your arm gets better fast.

  13. Hello Campers,

    Why don't you bring some of those into my shop and let me have a look. Maybe we can get an episode of Meteorite Hunters done out here.
