Hello lovely ladies,
here we are again on Friday. Have you all had a good week? Have you got something nice to look forward to this weekend? What made you smile this week? I will be joining Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. (Virginia has some great news this week....No, I'm not saying)
Ecphora gardnerae is a species of large (up to 5 inches) carnivorous sea snail lived during the Miocene epoch, and became extinct around five million years ago. Shells of Ecphora are common fossils in Maryland and Virginia. Ecphora was one of the first fossils from the “New World” to be illustrated in a scientific work in Europe (England, 1770). The best specimens of this fossil gastropod are reported from the Calvert Cliffs in Calvert County, and from Chancellor Point, in St. Mary's County.
Together with a Tiffany lamp stamp and a Nemo lookalike fish stamp.
Phew! All that from one postcard!
If you haven't fallen asleep already, here is what I have been up to this week:
That is all from me this week. Sorry it was rather long (again!)
We are looking forward to going to eat fish & chips later today. We have to drive more than an hour to find a place, but it is well worth the drive. Photos next week.
Of course I will put some funnies at the end.
Have a lovely weekend all!
PS One of my US friends, Elizabeth, had important info to add about Annapolis. She writes: "Annapolis is NOT just one of the cities in Maryland, it is also the state capitol. Every state has a capitol and theirs is Annapolis. Kansas's state capitol is Topeka. Each state's capitol does all its state business there. There are different forms of government and each house has its own job to do in every state."
Thank you Elizabeth.
