Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Treasure.
From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:
I picked up a boardgame called Dread Pirate at at a garage sale for $1. When I got it home I discovered that a) it was unopened, b) it had a wooden box to contain the game inside of the crappy cardboard outer box and c) many of the pieces were made of heavy metal and wood. Treasure indeed!
From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:
On the left side of the photo is a Mars meteorite and the right is a meteorite from the moon! Just a few more treasures of the United States. From the National Meteorite Collection at the National Museum of Natural History.
From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:
My antique books and favorite bookcase.
