Very light posting for a few weeks

Two reasons for not posting go beyond my usual laziness: I have had exceedingly poor luck finding new rock pile sites (maybe the heavy leaf coverage prevents spotting from the car or in the distance) and I am going on vacation for a couple of weeks starting next weekend. Last weekend I found a total of one split-wedged rock, which I will show (with fanfare) later.

Following along with the idea of "bringing home the bacon" or "bringing home the rock pile bacon" [like Michael Cole's "bringing home the epigraphic bacon"], I sometimes think about it as if we had to eat what I bring home. A larger stone mound...big game. A split-wedged rock...maybe a chipmunk. Sure, we'll eat. But not well.
