An "O"utstanding Rock


We passed this rock sitting in an unknown person's yard while driving through a nearby small town.  It was right by the street and it would be easy to slip (trespass) just a few feet onto their property to snap a picture.  I could be in and out before anyone knew.  This rock was just too amazing.  I had to get a picture.  While I was hastily focusing my camera, a truck slowed, then stopped on the road beside me.  A voice called toward me, "May I help you?"

BUSTED!

I immediately confessed to the man inside the truck, "I was impressed with this rock and had to get a picture." Both the man and his dog grinned from ear to ear.


"I found the rock," he began to explain, "and then told my neighbor you have to put it in your yard so everyone can see it."

His neighbor complied!  How can you argue with a man who has such a happy wife and friendly dog?  


He began to explain, "Found it...way back over there...then we got the tractor...and then...and then...."


I kept snapping pictures while he expounded on the finer points of rock moving.



"What a fascinating story," I agreed.  "Can I take your picture and post it on my blog for the world to see?"

Yep, I think I made his day.



Definitely an "O"utstanding rock.

    1. He does look like he is grinning, a very spoiled dog I assume.

    1. I wonder what caused the hole? We will never know, of course, but I just wonder.

    1. I must admit to flirting a bit since I did not want to be arrested.
