Happy February to one and all. This month can bring with it some pretty inter-esting weather so there’s
lots of time to hunker down and get busy with our in-door projects. I’ve had a little opportunity to do some wire wrapping
and there should be more on the horizon given the current conditions outside. Of course, that could change in a couple of
days and it will be perfect weather for no jack-ets again. Welcome to February in Kentucky.
We do have a Agate hunt field trip scheduled, thanks to the efforts of Allen Ferrell.
We will meet at Hardee's in Irvine, KY at 9:00 AM on Feb 16, 2013. From the January meeting, if the day before the field trip
the fore-cast temperature is not above 35 degrees, field trip will be cancelled.
Dues are now past due and if you haven’t paid for 2013 and you are receiving this newsletter, hooray!
You still have a chance. Hope to see everyone at the meeting February 21st. Bring
with you what your Valentine gave you for Valentine’s Day if it’s rock related. That ought to be a fun show and
Until then, Trish Henson

A True Rockhound
I wondered if any of you have a dog that does this. Our dog is named Mo (Mocha). She’s a pound puppy,
part chocolate lab, part retriever (we think). Mo is a sweet dog but scared of just about everything. Mo loves rocks. She
gets into my dump pile and finds a rock to her liking. Then she plays with it (throws it in the air and pounces on it), chews
on it, sleeps with it and then leaves it in the yard. The next time she wants a rock she goes to the pile and gets a new one.
Need-less to say, we have to be careful ―mo-ing‖ the lawn. She has also been known to steal rocks from my workshop.

I‘ve been getting contacted by other rock clubs. They read about our activities and want
to come hunt here. I don‘t know what to tell them as almost all of our collecting areas are either on private property
or so remote they would need a guide to find them. Most of them are used to hunting on public land. If anyone has any sug-gestions,
please let me know by e-mail or at the next meeting. Thanks.
Please consider writing an article or submitting some photos of your
work or workshop for other to enjoy. Share your wealth of experience with the club.
