sisters". I'm wondering if there's been any further developments on their
We stopped by the Barstow Discovery Center last week, intending to visit the

Hi Carl! I agree it is good where it's at. I really appreciated the
opportunity to touch and see the
Old Woman Meteorite.
The girl in the office gave me the evil eye when I tried to roll it out
of the BLM building!
She thought I was joking around! ;)
If there truly are additional pieces of the old gal, some one ought to
go get it and re-unite them.
I think UCLA should be jumping all over this with a vengeance. Funds
could be raised to retrieve these.
Russia would do it, I bet!
I volunteer to be part of the ground crew and donate money to help make
it happen by a qualified organization
Won't believe it until I see pictures. Hiding something like this is
nuts! I am mean really.
Now back to watching epoxy cure!
I need to call you next week.
