The Rock

Posted by Lorac Friday, 28 August 2009

I saw a meme that looked like fun so I have decided to try it and send it out to a few bloggers. It is one of the easier ones and doesn't require you life story.
So, here is the ritual:
1) Open up you first photo album
2) Scroll down to the 10th picture.
3) Post that picture and write the story that goes with the picture.

The Rock
Well, I have a love of all things mineral and just cool rocks and of course gems! I am, in one of my other lives, known as a rockhounder. For those of you not familiar with the term it simply means a collector. I have rocks and minerals all over the house in varying types and sizes but they have to have an interesting mineral or metallic quality to them.
This one has mica, biotite, quartz and K-feldspar in it. One of my sons and one of my granddaughters also enjoy rockhounding. It is amazing how many varieties there are from all over the world . With such neat names too!
When I took this picture I was really just goofing around, to see how the pics would come out.

Now the list of people I am sending this too:

1) Sandra at "Worlds End Farm This and That"
2) Tessa at "An Aerial Armadillo"
3) Jenn at "My Muskoka"
4) Delwyn at "a hazy moon "
5) Lizzy at "Lizzy Frizzfrock"

Hope you play along too!

  6. Hi Lorac

    I am fond of small smooth stones that fit in the palm of my hand, that warm up with holding and feel alive...

    thanks for the meme day I will try it...

    Happy days

  11. Sandra Says:
  12. I live in a rocky area, so I pick up interesting rocks often. I like your rock! I finally got my photo up. I have been a slow blogger, but I usually come through in the end!
