When Life Gives You Rocks . . .

When life gives you rocks . . .  all of the farmers of New England were given rocks and what did they do?  They built the beautiful rock walls that line the back roads of New England.

But what if life gives you stones?

Peter, Marash Girl's father, had the answer to that . . . his back yard was full of stones and he wanted a stone-free garden, so what did he do? He gave a party!  Yes, a stone gathering party, a nickel a stone, with hotdogs and soft drinks for all.

Or, of course, you could always make stone soup . . .


  1. This made me chuckle and reminded me of when I first moved to New Orleans. My apartment had a beautiful tree out front, and I thought it would be pretty to build a rock wall around it to plant flowers at the base. I was so used to growing up with rock walls in MA, that I didn't think about it but found out they don't have rocks there, and at the garden center, they were something like $3 per small stone. I skipped that idea!

    1. You've made Marash Girl appreciate the rocky soil that the glacier left in its wake!
