This Schnauzer Is Rock Solid

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

When we are at the beach during our camping stays I'm always picking up stones and telling my family about stories I see in the rock. I've always loved doing this so for approximately two years I've wanted a rock tumbler so I could polish up some of my best stories.

Why two years? I had asked a local toy store to order one but they never did so last father's day my family went to Hobby Lobby and they came to the rescue.

 

I've completed about 4 tumbles so far. There have been some neat discoveries but this one is my favorite.

This is NOT painted or etched onto the stone, it is the stone. If you are having trouble seeing it I had Timmothy Timm draw it out for you.

I searched the internet for a sleeping schnauzer but the closest I found wasn't alseep. However with the picture being a black dog on a white background it was easy to reverse the colors to make it look more like the stone.

Long story short... next stop eBay!

I'm hoping a Schnauser etched in stone by God is worth as much as some of the Elvis sightings people have sold.

What a great new hobby you have come up with, and it does look like a sleeping schnauzer.  Good luck on eBay.  A

I am really enjoying it John Pusa and I am learning as I go along. The first lesson I learned is that dark stones don't look any better polished than unpolished.

Hi Bob- what an interesting hobby!!!  I had fun collecting shells at the beach but when I was younger, I'd come home with all kinds of little rocks in my pockets.

No shells to collect here in North Dakota Kathy Streib but I know when we visited with Grandma and Grandpa in Atlantic City pretty much every shell we found on the beach made it back home with us.

Myrl Jeffcoat I've seen that in the last few years you can purchase face features at garden centers to put on trees. I've always thought that would be fun.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - Brilliant! I love this idea for a hobby. I'll have to see if my local hobby store sells something like this to purchase for my granddaughter's birthday. There's something about rocks that kids of ALL ages seem to enjoy. I still pick up rocks too! Thank you for this very motivating idea!

They are often so intense I need to go back to sleep because I'm more exhausted then I was before I went to bed Dorte Engel .  Last night was one of those nights and I've been struggling all day.
