Stacking, Sorting, and Carry Rocks for a Living

I had commented in a previous post about the countless roadside produce and ‘collectable’ shops in Alabama and how I was suprised there were SO MANY. As I traveled through Northern Arkansas I was stuck again but this time it was on the ‘rock’ stores. There must have been 30 of these places that sold pallets of rock. Some were small and others covered acres and acres of pallets full of pre-sorted rocks.

It got me to thinking… some of us think our jobs are difficult or we have a tough way to go of it occassionally. Imagine working in a geographic area where the best job is the finding, sorting, and stacking rocks! I loved my job before I left for this trip but after seeing and thinking about this I REALLY love my job!
