The sun started winking on and off, like a firefly calling his mate. We were all surprised when Betelgeuse answered, especially since the signal hadn't had time to make the journey. Then, suddenly, she was here, and it all went South in a hurry..

Looking forward to
family holidays without family
maybe we'll zoom
or chat
and eat our separate turkeys

I'm not sure yet what the large circular object in the middle is, but inside of it is a piece of a fenestrate bryozoan (the dark circle with the darker ovoid patches that look like giant alien eyes). The larger object has a cross-lamellar microstructure, which suggests that it's a brachiopod spine, but I've never seen one anywhere near this large. Also, it has suffered significant erosion before finally being deposited in this carbonate sand (otherwise known as skeletal grainstone). The rock is Mississippian and the image is 1 mm wide.
