How Do You Mend A Broken Heart?

A few days ago Florida Cracker made a post about a heart-shaped Alabama rock over at Pure Florida. I was not going to post about mine but after I saw his I thought, "what the heck". We were rolling around in a ditch (footing) at work trying to set some wall forms when I looked down at my knee and saw this rock. FC's rock appears much bigger and nicer and does have a slight crack through it. But mine is broken, with a piece missing. 'Course, that is sort of what gives it that heart shape. No more comment other than to say it's funny how you find or see things at certain times in your life.
And yes, that is my dirty, rough ol' paw in the photo. Concrete work messes your hands up something terrible even when you wear gloves.

we collect heart shaped rocks too. it doesn't amount to much of a collection. i think we have two. you know who has a large collection is farmgirlfare.

tis the season for tore up hands. although days on end of heavy gardening is nothing to a single day in the cement.

Yeah... it is funny how you see things at certain times of life. I saw a lot of Geo Metro's when I started looking for one.

On a more serious note, I'd be proud to shake that paw, Annie. :)

The blogger Farmgirl Fare has a big collection of heart shaped rocks at her site. Oh, I see Karl beat me to it.

I keep hoping I'll find a few of my round rocks fused into a heart. It could happen.

Hey karl! Yeah, I saw some of farmgirl's rocks. Very cool. this is the first one I think I have ever found.

thanks Ron! When most people shake my hand for the first time they get this funny look on their face and then some of them will ask, "what do you do for a living?"

Hey Pablo! Yes, it could happen, so keep looking. I have faith that the Switchman's wife will decide that she doesn't like country life anymore and run off with the insurance man! ;) Maybe we'll both find what we are looking for. lol!
