Memorable Automobiles from Cartoons:
Your road is gonna be Rocky! OR you have hit Rock bottom (from Ma’s blog). Turn right at the giant rock or River Rock make a beautiful fire place. This biscuit is as hard as a rock or don’t throw Rocks (stones) if you live in a glass house. Plowing is tough in rocky soil and THE Rock and Roll wasn’t here to stay.
I remember my dad saying, “Don’t tell me rocks don’t grow, we cleared 30 acres for planting, and we always hauled enough rocks away to add to the rock wall around the fields! It was the same EVERY YEAR!”
When I talked to my sister and her hubby Dick about building here they were very happy. Dick said, “If it is at all possible I would like to have some North Carolina mountain rock on the outside of the house. We went to Marion, NC and bought a load of rock to veneer some of the house.
I have used rock on fire places and chimneys in several homes. Rock does add some character to a home. AT Hikers will ask about Pennsylvania, “Have you hiked in Rocksylvania YET?
Yep the AT has Rocks and Roots.
In our language we use the Rock to describe many things. Religion is one thing for sure, “The stone that the builder rejected has become the CORNER Stone.”
I can appreciate all the notes above, but in this day and time I want to have character as solid as a ROCK! As my daddy would say, “I want my word to be my BOND.” My mind goes back to the many legal agreements I have made with a hand shake and I recall one of the later attorneys strongly advising me to cease that, it is archaic and very dangerous. It took a while but he did help me move into the 20th century. LOL
I hope your bed is soft and roads not rocky, but hope your mental, physical and spiritual ‘conditions’ are SOLID AS A ROCK!
Finally, my girl looked great on this rock over 60 years ago!
PS: I have heard Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me....(That is always dependent on your state of mind, because most humans have been hurt by a nasty word hurled LIKE A STONE!)
