I used to collect rocks from every state I could, in the shape of that state. It started when I found a rock in the Platte River that looked like Nebraska. I had twenty or so (8 of them were uncanny and the perfect size) and intended to someday finish it. Then I had children, and found Idaho in the pinestraw island and that was the end of that.

Missouri doesn't have dirt. It has clay. And it sucks to dig in.
