it sure did, Nelson
The other half of the geode is out there somewhere.
But now you can see the beauty that is inside the geode.
At least Nelson was honest.
Nelson’s attitude is that of a man facing nature. He destroys everything and sees the result without real regret.
As rocks go!
A real geode wouldn’t break into that many pieces by just dropping it. A chip might break off of it or it might break into two (if it already had a crack in it). Otherwise, it would take hitting it pretty hard it with a hammer over and over to produce the result shown here.
Time to clean up the mess before Opal sees it ;-)
Rock dating is always fanciful. E.g, a rock is proclaimed 70 million years old but has a clearly preserved dino’s footprints on it. How the footprints could have resisted the surface erosion more than mere tens of thousands years is beyond me.
Remember that last phrase, Earl…
I wanna ROCK..!!!!!!
Is the geode going to cry? I know it’s all broken up.
Nelson has a point there.
Hello all today’s strip is interesting on breaking of that geode.For me a week ago I did a hard fall on asphalt residential street, my daughter and I was walking our dogs, another man walking his dogs, all leashes in use. This was then, ER nurse tried hard to contact Orthopedic as I have a fracture of my left hip, not like when Nelson accidently dropped that geode piece, I did have appointment yesterday, I do have fracture on left side above the hip socket bone, no going anywhere for more then 6 weeks, then another x-ray. Happy for comics.
Guess how he feels about Grandpa’s age.
