This just helps prove my theory that rocks are free, you just have to pay shipping! 10 million dollar project- rock was $70,000.

P.S. Anyone want to bet that Poto sets up a detour to get the rock in his yard?

No need, I've already arranged for that transporter to send a similar rock to Peter after they're done with this project. I've instructed them to place it directly in front of his garage door.

Fortunately we don't park cars in my shop any more. However, a rock that size might damage our new driveway...

The completed work is supposed to make the rock look like it's levitating.

I can't wait to see it.

Apparently, someone has more money that sense.
Too bad it ain't me.

Randy,

Both you and me have more money than sense- and we have hardly any money!
