Writer's Block: Talent show

What is something you do well?

I can move rocks. I know, I know…not very impressive, but if a job needs to be done…it needs to be done.

I’ve had some big drainage issues in the fruit orchard I’m attempting to plant. Drainage issues as in…

One good storm took out a two feet path of mulch I had just painstakingly laid down.

My solution: Find a way to turn a disaster into a thing of beauty. And, that’s where the rocks come in.

I casually mentioned to my friend that I needed to find a way to get a ton of rocks for dirt cheap.

The next day she called and said, “Clear out your driveway…We’re bringing you rocks. A ton of rocks.”

Actually, it was more like two tons. Straight from the local rock quarry. (And, she wouldn’t take a cent for them!)

Here’s the beginnings of my stop-the-mulch-from-being-washed-away river bed.

(And, to my friend if you’re reading this… YOU ROCK!!!!!)

One day you will have to stop by and load up your basket with fruit! It might take a year or two but at least I'm headed in the right direction!
