The Patio Chair: Between a Rock and a Bigger Rock

For those of you blissfully unaware off in Google Reader land, I thought I'd draw your attention to two things.

First of all, our rock pile is growing. I have kindly refrained from posting about every added picture (because I'm nice like that), but I've been adding new photos to the slideshow nonetheless. So feel free to take the extra few seconds to click on over to the actual site and check it out. Heck, since you've already invested ALL THAT TIME coming, go ahead and leave a comment. I don't care if you don't have anything to say. It wouldn't kill you to say hi. Speechlessness at my amazing posts is no excuse.

The other item of rock pile business is that I've decided it was time to add something in the images for scale. It was starting to get hard to tell how big the rocks were. The latest rock photo is of a real doozy so I wanted you to appreciate it. Old patio chair to the rescue. So, yes, the ugly white chair is in the picture on purpose.

The chair will really come in handy when we unveil the next rock in all it's resplendent glory. We were planting another tree and dug one loose a couple days ago. I'll totally get a photo -- if we can ever figure out how to lift the thing out of the hole it's in.

Okay, no offense, but I can't believe I'm actually interested in looking at a rock pile. Surely I could find something more productive to do, but no, here I am looking at rocks. Are you going to work them into your landscape somehow? I've made a rock path through my flower bed that looks pretty nice.

Let me turn your attention to the "water feature" in our backyard plan. Our goals is to not have to purchase ANY rocks for that!

Hey! I saw a huge huge huge (like twenty feet tall) pile of rocks in a field near our house the other day and was going to take a picture to send to you for you to add to your slideshow to see if anyone would notice, I didn't, but I thought it was pretty funny.

We need to hang out. Let's get that arranged.

Oh, Hi.

Hi, I'm a fairly new reader of your blog, and I have to say, I think you are hilarious. Your entries keep me laughing, (even if it is inwardly to myself). But I am just wondering, what are you doing with all those rocks? I am very curious.
