Everything is temporary, but it sure feels perm when you are a kid.
I still feel bad for him...uhm, I mean for you, that day.

I used to polish rocks, not sure what caused me to move past that phase.

Too cute, Toon! (and I still have geodes from when I was a kid, they fascinated me)

...aw... I remember that feeling... I would pick up long sticks and pretend they were rifles and often would find them discarded...

...I guess this explains your life-long aversions to Avon products..!

What a pitiful little expression in that last frame. :( I STILL have a hard time passing a cool field of rocks.

I have several interesting rocks and I've picked them up since being an humm shall we say elderly person. My favorite is a samll rock shaped like a heart. You seemed to always be able to entertain yourself as a child. I like that.

Ahh, bad timing to drop a bag of rocks. Unless of course it's a nice Avon Lady with neat-O products.
