I deserve a wall

  1. Okay, I have the coat, the wig, have to locate the hat. Camera check, pen, check. For other security reasons I will keep the day and time to myself and will get back to you when the mission is completed.

    hey! I think I need a very cool recon name, what about Foxy Lady or Cougar (since I am officially into my 40’s), think up something good. It is awfully boring here during the winter months, this will give me something to do, other than shovel snow.

  2. Dang hit the wrong key ignore the first oops. I live in Montana, there is a yogo sapphire jewelry store that is just brimming with those gems. Just say the word and I can go check the place out for you, to see what they have and for how much.

    1. All jewelry recon must be performed wearing a trenchcoat, fedora and a wig. Use the camera in your watch, and if anyone tails you then push the button on the pen Q gave you. It turns into a plane.

      1. Thanks, Andrea!

        I grew up in the Midwest (south of the Black Hills) and have always wanted to live in Montana! I’m currently a West Coast inhabitant – but I feel like a square peg in a triangle hole! 😉

        It’s very cool to see your reply to me here – if I get a hankering for more gems, I’ll definitely give you the word, especially since you have awesome instructions and the pen from Q.

        Thanks!

  3. I have so much fun reading your posts!

    I was stationed in Germany whilst I was in the Army (many, many moons ago), and I can remember a local pointing out a burial mound – it was actually a visceral site – I mean – I just felt that burial mound to my core!

    I can TOTALLY imagine you buried in a jewel chest or, as you said, the world’s largest gem setting.

    Thanks for continuing to provide eye candy for me. I love it! I might just have to contact you to see if you can transform a few pieces of mine. That’s be groovy!

    Keep rockin’ the design world!

    P.S. My hubbie is enamored with Yogo Canyon sapphires, the non-heat treated form preserve the natural color. They are beauties! I bought him some loose stones from a Montana mine for Xmas. Have you seen these gems before?

    1. That visceral feeling….isn’t that weird? If you hadn’t known what the mound was, do you think you would have gotten the same feeling?

      I’ve felt that way at old European churches and cathedrals and ruins before, and I’ve walked away wondering why I’ve felt what I’ve felt. Is it a sensing of spirit; a recognition of something lingering, a primal reaction to something intangible? Or is it simply an emotional reaction to an ancient man-made space; an acknowledgement that we are in the presense of something which puts time and humanity in perspective? Hmm.

      I think transforming old pieces into new is something everyone should do!

      Montana and Yogo Canyon sapphires…..I didn’t know about them until I read your comment! And then I spent hours and hours searching and reading…… Oy. Very, very cool. One of the articles said that the dike of solidified magma in which they are found “runs roughly east-west for almost five miles in a line straight enough to be perceived easily from the air.” Now I need to go check this out on Google Earth, because that’s just cool. I’m such a nerd. Thank you for telling me about that, Lori!

  4. Newgrange is one of my favourite places in the world and it has one of the best walls I’ve ever seen, white quartz studded with smooth river stones – good choice for a burial mound!

    1. Jenny,

      When I have my own personal burial mound, a la Newgrange, but gem-ier, you can totally be buried there too, if you’d like! Maybe all of your heart-broken lovers can do something extra special for you. An obelisk or something? A nice gem-encrusted pathway up to the mound?

      This could be a group mound, but by invitation only. We don’t want it getting common.
