What to do with Round Rocks? Make Art.

The backyard came with a bunch of round rocks. Sort of out of place. The cut granite left over from quarrying is cool but these round ones want to be back on a beach. But at 80 to 180 pounds they aren’t going anywhere fast. Sue wanted them to be sprinkled past a garden so it would look like a dry riverbed but that didn’t work. Now she wanted them out.

What to do? 30 yards was as far as I was going so Ted and I rolled them out of the way into a nice pile. They still looked kind of stupid but then a lightbulb went off.

Why not make some art? What do you think? Ted is taking the under that they won’t be upright next weekend. I’m taking the over because I think they will last forever.

ps. If you bet the under and then sneak over and push them over Rubber Duck may have a webcam set to record motion. Great for the Cat Birds. Are the Cat Birds more funny then usual this year? They are acting like they got into some ripe catnip.

    Round Rocks.
    Some time ago I was told Merchant Ships came to America with rocks as their cargo. The rocks became round, as a result of being tossed around in the cargo hold during the voyage and were dumped on the beachs. Then the ships were filled with mechandise from here to return abroad. I do not know if this is true. Maybe some readers can clarify this story

    Don’t know about the ‘how the rocks got round’ story — but I love the rocls! You’ve definitely created ‘well’balanced’ art. (: They remind me of cairns, as well as contemporary art / sculpture.
    I am a ‘born’ beach rock collector, & have always had beach rocks placed throughout the flower beds in our yard. They’ve even ‘moved’ with us.
    Congrats on a great idea!

    Excuse the typo! That’s rocKs – Not ‘rocls. And, they won’t ROLL, but the art rocks! (‘
