More Rocks

In preparation for the upcoming three-day weekend Southern Man got online last night and did his usual perusal of his favorite cornucopia of free stuff and lucked into a pile of landscaping boulders. "Very heavy!" waned the ad. "Bring several men!" So Southern Man arranged a time to go take a look and this morning he headed out to The Land and after a few chores tossed a dolly and a couple of 2x4s into The Titan and headed 'way up northeast figuring that if they the rocks weren't too big he and some unsuspecting friend could get them later.

Well as it turned out the rocks weren't too big and Southern Man managed to wrestle most of them into the truck before the homeowner appeared and gave him a much-needed hand with the last three.

But Southern Man loaded these all by himself. Why, yes, they were heavy. They're big rocks. What did you think?

It was another full load and The Titan was sitting pretty low on his springs but he's a big tough truck so Southern Man headed back to The Land but stopped for half-a-dozen geocaches and a little sightseeing along the way.

You know you're in Southern Man country when you see signs like this!

Back at the land the rocks were unloaded and stacked by backing the Titan up to a pallet and dumping them off the tailgate...

That's a big pallet of rocks! Or a pallet of big rocks. Whatever.

...and all that took Southern Man until dark so he headed back to La Casa to shower and fix dinner and watch over her shoulder as Teen Daughter efiled her taxes and played Guitar Hero and had a delicious meal of veggies and rice and lemon chicken and began to plot tomorrow's fun!

Rocks...big rocks.

What ever are you going to do with those rocks?

Traveled to Arkansas and saw so many pick up trucks...went through AZ,NM, TX panhandle, and OK. Pick up trucks were everywhere!

I have lots of landscaping projects that beg for landscaping boulders so I grab them whenever I can!
