Sept 10, 2014: Petosky Stones
May be hard to believe but Michigan has things stranger than the Monster clan... really.

Cool as cool can be.

WOW! Those are so amazing! I love these! Now I just gotta have one, or two, or a whole pile of 'em would be good! Yes!

Jeez peeps, these are two-a-penny. probably have them knocking about in my garden, definitely some on the porch, could probably mail you some! Isn't it funny what you come to take for granted? Almost every garden round here has Petosky stones in it. We all bring them back from the shores of Lake Superior then get bored with them and toss them in the yard, they're pushed around by southern Michigandans going "Up North" these days.

Next time I go up north (prob not til next summer now) I'll keep an eye out for small, mailable ones for all y'all

I realize this dates me. . . However, are these distant cousins to "Pet Rocks" that visited us several decades ago? They must be uptown cousins as opposed to the country style.

to me, they look like the hippy cousins of the pet rocks, with their tie-dyed appearance
RocketGirl Thursday Sep 11 03:09 PM
Tye-dyed rocks! That is too funny BigV! Nah we didn't get any fancy ones like that at the local Value Mart. They had those Pet Rocks displayed under a warming lamp - like they would with Mexican Jumping beans, or how they do with baby chicks! Hey XOXOXOBruce, Thanks for hipping us to cool-ass stuff we might never know about. I'm thinking a field trip is in order here and we can start at Monster's backyard and progress from there, make it a world-wide effort. We all need to get out more and see this stuff, and say things we shouldn't, and then just laugh ourselves silly! Oh and yeah - I really do want one of these fine tye-dyed Petosky stones... yes I do!

I heard the banana lady (MIL) won't come back, because last time she was doing pushups on the lawn at 5 AM, she caught pneumonia. But that's just a rumor.
Lola Bunny Thursday Sep 11 09:17 PM
Maybe it's a girl thing, but I'm digging them rocks too. :-D
xoxoxoBruce Thursday Sep 11 09:22 PM
Grav and I are with you.

Oooh, have to ask my big brother about those rocks. I want one. And he can get me one, being Grand Poobah of Rocks and Things, for our state anyway. I'm sure he can get me one from MI if he doesn't already have some. His house is lousy with rocks. Lousy, I tell you.
