UPDATE-Fossils On My Mind

Recommended Posts

Nimravis

I always have fossils on my mind and today is no exception. I am currently at a conference in the former McDonald’s University in Oak Brook, Illinois and they have tons of limestone slabs are one of there lakes, but I did not see any fossils. Now on the inside they still have many display cases that contain various McDonald’s memorabilia (I.e. old uniforms, happy meal toys, etc.) and I happened to see the below items, I never had seen them in past years. It is nothing special, but it still is fossil related.

 

I came back again today for the conference and I found this Orthoconic nautiloid. (See last pic)

Guilty of that as well. I can't walk past a pile of sand or dirt without looking at it in hopes of finding a fossil.

 

Some years ago I chaperoned a school field trip to the state house in Vermont and by chance our small group of kids got to meet the governor. I was so distracted by a large ammonite fossil in a marble floor tile that I missed out on the opportunity to meet him as well. :DOH:

Personally I’d rather see the ammonite rather then any governor .....
