PS: I searched for standing petrified trees on the net, we never saw one. But I found this, in NY state even:
There is a Devonian formation in New York State that contains standing trees. ... The swamp slowly filled in leaving the trees surrounded and buried in mud that turned into rock.
There are many other standing, I just never saw them in person. ;-)
PS2: My healthy up date. We went to the VA walk in. The Dr. referred me to some guy called GI. He will call in a couple days to set up what ever them GI's do. BUT on the bright side. I spent today without a pain. Felt as good as new with no pain pills of any kind.. Valentine's day just might be magical!
