There are a lot of rocks on the Long Ranch. So many rocks that I could build a small city out here.
On a recent trip to Nebraska to pick up our entryway door, we drove past a rock wall that was constructed some time ago, by hand. It was absolutely beautiful.
That’s when I started thinking that I should really utilize the abundant stock of stone I have scattered about the ranch.
I decided to start with my flowerbed.
Unfortunately, that’s also where my efforts ended.
For many reasons.
1. The rocks were heavy.
2. I didn’t have enough children to help me.
3. I’m not real good at manual labor.
4. On any level.
5. According to my calculations, it would take me 23 lifetimes to construct anything more than an outhouse given my strength and intelligence.
6. I could be off by a year or two.
…it will involve much more horse power.
