Can you believe it? THIS is inside THIS??

When I was in town with a friend looking for a trailer to buy, I found a rock on the ground and picked it up.  This was the inside...

and this was the outside...

Proof that you can't tell a book by it's cover.

It was already cut on one side so as soon as I picked it up I could see all the detail that was in the rock.







Isn't it beautiful? What a lucky find! I'm using it as a paperweight on my dinette table.

We've moved again.  There ain't no moss growing under these wheels!   More tomorrow.

From me and Katie, have a great day, everyone!  😁💓😁

  3. My Dad was a rockhound who sliced up lots of rocks. There are lots of interesting interiors in the rocks. Go to a rockhound show some time and be ready to be amazed.

    1. Yes, they are here, but apparently only pass through at night. I find burrow poop around in the morning, but other than Katie barking from time to time, I don't know when they go by. :)
