Where does time go?
Greetings and Welcome to the Daily Rock and Mineral Feed.  This will consist of a daily (well – not always) compilation of decent photos of interest.
 
The Rockhound Connection
 
and numerous quotes and images from my Facebook friends.

 

These are the images that appeal to my sensibilities or the lack thereof.
Thanks,

Enjoy!
