Spied this in my new rock border, in and amongst granite and very ordinary looking stones....

I'd like to know what it is, other than very unusual looking.

Have sent the pic to a serious rock-hound friend...

Glad you're having good weather, Gail.

It is beautiful and sunny here today, with no rain expected in the foreseeable future....not sure if that is a good or bad thing, tho...

My new Lily Launch Pad, off my back stoop....a combination effort of the young man who did the rock border, and myself who hauled five, 40 lb bags of sand, gravel and rock this morning to fill it.

Unique to its very purpose, I'm very pleased with it.

Gives Lily a place to launch herself, out or in, without tearing up grass to then leave mud when it rains.

Half of each of the bags of larger rock first went into my expanded rock and shell bed in the front...which will now need some shells added to it.

When I opened the first bag, this rock came rolling out.

Does Doug watch over me, encourage me, and find ways to let me know he is there, from his perch in the afterlife?

Yes, I believe he does, and was saying good job, Margaret..

It's a heart....it has to be meant for me.

I agree. It's a neat looking rock. Does your local university have a geology department? If so, I'll bet they could identify every part of it and tell you how they must have come together.

The big, beautiful and very interesting rock seems to be a massive hunk of rose quartz...per my rockhound friend, and Gerard who was here this evening.

It is also called "the heart stone".

It is directly out from my front door, where I will see it coming and going.

I am a bit stiff this evening, and have realized I lifted 200lbs of sand and gravel four separate times today.

I couldn't have done that 3 years ago.

On to Moraine View tomorrow...

Maggie

Baked cookies, loaded up, and we were settled into Moraine View before noon.

Trailers have been pulling in all day, and we have about filled this section up with regular attendees...and a few new faces.

Weather is good, all is well, this will be a weekend of socializing.

A good day, with near perfect weather....warm and sunny, but a good breeze.

We have sat and visited, caught up and worked on our respective projects...and Lily has had three walks, so is a happy girl.

At dinner tonight, Dana Johnson (the other half of Airtandem), had made a small counted cross stitch "Bless this..." for each of us, with a stitched picture specific to our particular rigs...including Gerard & Lauras orange Argosy.

Very sweet, and I am going to put mine inside my cargo door.

I have a picture, but signal isn't good enough here to get it to load, so when I get home.

It's been a very nice weekend, including a group breakfast at the American Legion in Leroy this morning.

Plenty of sun, no rain, tho gale force winds coming off the lake yesterday.

Are waiting in line as I type.

Tanks emptied, we hopped on 74 to make a stop at the Blue Beacon in Bloomington before heading home, as a fine spray of tree sap is coating everything.

Tomorrow is my last day of volunteer work until probably the first of November, will make a run to Iowa and then look to head north and east within a couple of weeks.

I'm ready.

Maggie
