a ruler would put perspective of how big it is,
glacial till area you are in so anything is could have been moved there

I doubt it qualifies for a fossil but may be very old.

Thanks Cragar.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Good Lord! I sure hope that "at the high school you teach at", you don't teach English. Even still, I am sure that "there neat"...

Most of Britains disease problems in their livestock is because of the millions of pound of bison skeletons sent over there to be ground and used as fertilize their fields

They all did not die of lead bullets in the old west.
just food for thought
