Joy 17/82: Rock
Now, I have discovered the most amazing thing ... I can buy rocks ... big rocks ... big, beautiful rocks. I went to Oakhurst Rocks today to look for flagstone and fell in love with a giant rock ... it's quartz with veins of crystals running through it. They can't even weigh it but know that it's more than 5,000 pounds (the scale limit) and about the size of a small truck ... without wheels.
They will sell it to me ... and deliver it for about what a low-end iPad costs. I want this rock ... but where to put it ... hmmmm ... it's not like you can just stick it in the corner of the yard.
About the image: this is the flagstone I'm thinking about for the patio ... actually a mixture of two. It reminds me of the canyon lands in Utah.
