It’s that time of year again! Limber up your fingers, dig out the crowbar, charge the batteries in the camera; the famed International Rock Flipping Day is upon us!
My slogan: Eat. Sleep. Flip rocks.
Awww, damn! I was out in the yard yesterday, doing some chores and enjoying the sun by the pool and i had this urge come over me. I got up and went into the corner of the yard where it borders an overgrown area and flipped some rocks. One day too soon!
Four exclamation points yet!!!!
I hope to see your entry anon. Thanks for the link!
Gotta be tough putting back a rock you flipped with a crowbar.
Gruebait: Unless the crowbar is not so much for flipping over the rock as for dealing with what is found under it.
sounds like a natural compliment to “cow tipping” though what one finds thereunder may be disconcerting…
I think the crowbar is explicitly suggested if you live in an area with venemous critters likely to be lurking under rocks – your hands will be well away from any possible strike. Quite how you’re expected to move (say) a rattlesnake so you can put the rock back without hurting it was not discussed.
