I Screwed Up!

I was moving and I carefully packed my meteorite collection for the trip. I had one specimen, a beautiful 20 pound Campo packed in a separate box from the others. I also had set aside several boxes destined for Goodwill. Somehow, the Goodwill boxes and the box containing the Campo meteorite got mixed up. I have a feeling the the Campo went to Goodwill since I can't find it in the boxes I moved to my new place.. I'm sure the Goodwill folks didn't know what it was and who now knows what happened to it. I hate myself!

Carpe Noctum

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.

So do they for being the "jerk" that thought it was funny to donate a rock. 8)

Sorry for your loss. I lost my 66-CD Palomar Sky Survey disks in a similar way sad

What was Goodwills' response when you contacted them after realizing the mistake?
