Topic: geology et al
Mineral wealth in Minnesota includes iron ore, not as important as it used to be but still prominent, dimension stone for quarrying (granites and other igneous rocks...also sedimentary limestone), peat, marl, clay, and of course, water in abundance, for which we should be grateful.
I just read that one type of granite was marketed as "Reformatory Gray" because the reformatory near Saint Cloud was made of this stone and there were once several active quarries within the walls. What kid hasn't been warned to behave in the car when nearing this formidable structure with its high walls and lookout towers?
Did a whirlwind clean up job on the house yesterday and entertained family. Tonight I've been shanghaied into accepting an invitation to supper at the house of friends. I need, I crave time to myself. Too much socializing lately.
I bought myself another sherbert colored gauze shirt today (lime). They didn't have the orange in my size.
I'm still working on my sonnet and perhaps i've lost my touch.
