lot r

Lot R
R is for Rocks, lots of rocks. I don’t know of a person that has not played with rocks. Do you have fun collecting lots of pretty rocks? If one becomes inaner with rocks you become a Rock hound.  Well I have to say I am a rock hound.  I get out my rock hammer, gold pan, shovel, pick. Load the truck and head for the hills or desert. I know where to find obsidian, agates, flint, jasper, jade, garnets, geodes, topaz, turquoise, opals and leaver-rite.  I like skipping rock too. You find a good flat rock then giver a fling and watch it jump across the water. I have a pet rock. His name is blue. When I was a youngster I would go with my dad and hunt for rock. I would find one and would ask my dad what kind of rock it was that I found. He would say “it a piece of leaver-rite” then he would explain “its leaver it right were you found it.”  Here is some that we did not leave.

Thanks for the memories, Roy. When I was smnall one of my older brothers was a rock hound. I can remember the noise of the tumbler, and some of the beautiful things he made. He especially enjoyed making things formy Mom.

Beautiful rocks. I was always bringing home rocks. I still do, but I never had a tumbler. Then again, most of the rocks I kept were too big.
I have one now, polished by the river but not shiny like those above, but it was a beautiful sample of layering of soft and hard rock. No idea what they are though.

When I am at the shore, I collect rocks and shells. Your rocks are beautiful. Who makes them into jewelry?
