A Man, A Plan, A Canal… July 19, 2007

…So there was this rock I wanted to climb, but it was really, really wet at its base, with a little bit of standing water and a LOT of mud.

Plus it had a big old rotted log across its front, apparently the iron-hard heartwood of a very large fallen maple tree.

So I brought my chain saw out there last week, cut the log into five large pieces (about three hundred pounds each) and chucked it / rolled it away from the boulder. Then I cleaned out under the boulder, dug a small drainage ditch, lined it with rocks and went looking for larger stones to roof over my little canal.

I found a perfect slab of gneiss, two inches thick by four feet long and twenty inches wide. I wished it was a foot or two longer, but hey, it was a good start, and after half an hour of lugging the thing through the woods to my work-site, I was pleased that it fit so nicely!

Another half-hour search produced another flat rock, not as nice as the first, but it was getting late, so I grabbed it and hucked it into place, and my canal was finished.

Then I went up on top of the boulders to admire my handy-work, and…Holy Cow!

It’s a miracle! A Giant Penis sighting in the woods of Monroe! Quick, take a picture, the guys down at the bar will never believe this!

So I took a picture and I’ll let YOU decide: Is that a friggin’ miracle, or what????

C.R. – you know why I dig you? First you go to the trouble of doing all this so you can climb. That’s dedication. And you share your very interesting pictures with us nearly each and every day.

Yes – it looks like a penis to me. I’m with Phydeaux – email that to Shakes.

I laughed pretty hard – did this in the pouring rain, and my little Love Canal was running like a fire hose! 😆
