I Don't Even Play


Check out this boulder I dug up out of what will soon be my flower garden.

And if you're not impressed yet, let me assure you, it is much heavier than it looks. Especially when it is buried deep in the cold, cold ground. At one point, I was upside down with pretty much my entire torso in the hole with the rock trying to pull it out of there. I'm sure this was quite a sight for passers by to behold. ;-)

But I won. I ain't scared o' no rock. You may now refer to me as Wonder Woman, Super Girl, or She Who Will Not Be Taunted by Deeply Buried Rock. Yes, it was that heavy and hard to dig out. :-D

And now I must find a place to use it as an ornamental reminder of my adventure today.

There is another one in what will eventually be my vegetable garden. It better be scared, 'cause I don't even play, y'all.

Oh, and don't miss the big fat earth worm Gracie was very proud of. That's the biggest one she found today. Gotta love digging in the dirt.

You're like a sexy Sisyphus.

Your description of being almost upside-down is very graphic. Jared should have been there with his camera! :)

Anne, I'm still giggling just thinking about it. When I finally got it out of there and came in to take a shower, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and cracked up. I looked like I was wearing the entire front yard minus the rock. Good times. . . .

Heck with his camera, he should'a been there with his shovel!
