Blue Earth and Pipestone, MN & Mitchell, SD, 6/8/2014

On the road again Sunday June 8
 Blue Earth is the home of the Jolly Green Giant. He wears size 78 shoe, is 55 feet tall, his smile is 48 inches. He was right by our campground. Can you see us?
10 am Mass at St. Peter and Paul Church.
Sunday was Pentecost. The Priest talked about how Pentecost is as important as Christmas and Easter. It is the birth of the church. He encouraged us to be open to the Holy Spirit. He daily prays: Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Beautiful but seldom seen portrayal of Jesus.
Annunciation to Mary
Pipestone National Monument, Pipestone, MN.
This area is the only location where Indians have quarried red pipestone from early times to present.
Indians chisel out the quartzite to reach the catlinite.

Drawing of how the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD will look in the fall. Monday they started taking down the outside front murals.
 The murals are done using 7 different colors of corn. The edging is grain stocks.
