Element: Earth

This is my addition to the Earth Element for Shari's site...it is a World Globe and was a Christmas present from my father sometime in the mid-1960s. The mountain ranges are raised so you can run your fingers over them and feel the contour of the earth skin. The continents have remained the same, however...

Sorry this didn't show up as clearly as I wanted, but maybe you can see why my globe shows it's age: The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics ! Can't you hear The Beatles singing..."Back in the U S S R...!!"

Hope this brings a smile!
