Son has been gone one day. He just called and got Mike. I can hear mike talking about the differences between the poconos, the adirondacks, and the catskills.

Mike is hoping also to make a family visit to the  museum of anthracite!! That is, unsurprisingly, in Pennsylvania.

When i was a kid i thought that that was such a mysterious and beautiful word. I also like felony (the word i mean.)

Pretty hard for a little girl to work those into poems. I did try.

Anthracite is "hard" coal, I believe, and yes it is a mysterious and beautiful sounding word. How about "bituminous," which I think is the so called "soft" coal.
If these sort of words didn't already have established meanings, they would be great place names or character names in a story of some kind.

Yes. I agree they would make good names. Also feldspar.

Hope your son is settling in to his new home.

I've never really thought about anthracite, but you're right, it's a beautiful word!

I hope A. is getting on okay and you're all managing to readjust, everything must seem a bit strange right now.
