A couple years ago about this time, Kelly started his GIS career with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
I thought on his last day (yesterday), he might sneak out a little early, but no. I walked into his office at 4 pm to find him still working away. So I assume this means the environment remains in need of attention. Kelly’s colleagues entertained me while he checked the last items off his list.
It seems Kelly has been surrounded by geologists for these two years and I can say now with certainty, they’ve not been a good influence. They’ve encouraged him to fall off the wagon back into the abyss of rock collecting, so it’s left to the sane person in our family (me) to explain why we’re not moving any rocks from Indiana to Virginia - just like we didn’t move any rocks from Kansas City to Indiana.
Our walk home through downtown was delightful, cool and breezy. But upon our arrival at home, I witnessed Kelly retrieve what appeared to be two fossil-laden clastic sedimentaries from his back pack. Not good.
So yesterday, Kelly’s IDEM career came to a close, but the effects linger.
Yours under the influence of geologists,
