Wanna Hear About My Rock?

6th grade is taking a photography class and 1 of her assignments was to take outdoor pictures of her home. Today she was editing her photos and I saw one that reminded me of story of getting something that I wanted.

I have always wanted 1 of those big rocks that you see in people's yards, but after pricing them knew that it would be one of those things that just stayed on my wish list. Well, last summer our utility company decided that they were going to put meters on the outside of the houses in our neighborhood as most were in the basement and nobody would let meter readers in anymore. LOL! When they dug near my foundation to get to the meter, they hit a rock that was blocking right where they needed to hook into the meter. They had to dig it up and the guys ask me if they could please just leave it in the yard. I cracked up! It was not as big as what I thought I wanted, but it is the perfect size for sitting on in the front yard, the kids love standing on it and jumping off (and it is small enough to be safe for that) and finally, the place where they left it is perfect because it stops the water run-off that used to flood the flower bed we sometime put in there.

My rock!

Back in the 70's my Dad had a Pet Rock, LOL, but it was really just a brick that had "Pet Rock" taped to the front of it. Not nearly as cool as yours, LOL.
