Shells: did you know that down the Mississippi river in central Ill across from Iowa------there are ??????shells in the water or up on the shore that have HOLES DRILLED IN THEM.

It was from the pearl factory in Dallas City, Il that drilled the holes for PEARL BUTTONS for clothes. Modern technology and the Japanese closed it up when it eventually buttons were made of plastic or ? ? ? Have two of those shells around here.

This story and 25 cents WILL NOT GET you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Just Wednesday Trivia!
Enjoy Carol
