The Runaway Balls

By Bubbles
April 15, 2010

My husband surprised me one day with two large stone balls for the front garden. He had to have two men help him place them. I just loved them peeking out of the salvias near the sidewalk. Our neighbors would walk up the hill and take a rest, letting their kids sit on top of the balls. This is a story of how the balls wound up hidden in our backyard.

That's a great story. Have you ever seen the "World's Strongest Man" competition on t.v.? They have these stone balls like yours that the lift up onto platforms. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1MHQRGef5s The event is called the Atlas Stones. Be glad you don't have any extreme body builders on your street. Rolling on the floor laughing
