Greetings from the Pennines,
Today was a very simple day spent cleaning minerals up at Little Allercleugh and a quick (supposed) trip to Durham which actually took about 2 hours instead of 40 minutes due to the laying of a new gas pipeline.
Byron did the same up at the Rogerley sawing up specimens that were lining the rails which were too big for the saw at Little Allercleugh.
Richard Busch arrived about 6:15 p.m. via taxi from Darlington train station and we made a quick trip down to the Golden Lion to meet Byron and discuss the necessary plans for tomorrow.
I am spending the evening wrapping specimens from the Birthday Pocket for air parcel post shipment to Jesse plus the one good specimen from the West Crosscut which will likely be mailed out tomorrow.
That is all from this place way north of Lake Woebegone, Cal
